I haven't read a Dick Francis book in awhile, but this one by son Felix was reminiscent of the ones I've read in year's past. An enjoyable read with the familiarity of the horse racing world.

This is an OK book by son Felix riding on the shoulders of a series of wonderful books by father Dick Francis. Some scenes seem to have been recycled out of older books - and overall, it's not up to the standards that a "Dick Francis Novel" should be.

The character development - not to mention overall length - is thin compared to his dad's books. The romantic interest is cartoonish.

I've read all the Dick Francis novels, and I think the hero is always a decent man who goes up against great odds and wins due to his courage and intelligence. When there is a romantic interest, it may take place without marriage, but not with one of them being married to someone else. Dick Francis usually reserved adulterous behavior for the villains. Seems like his son doesn't have the same standards.
