Description

Over a 40-year span, Dick Francis built a reputation for crafting gripping mysteries set amidst the complex world of horseracing. His legacy continues under the masterful pen of his son, Felix. In Bloodline, race caller and TV personality Mark Shillingford confronts his twin sister Clare, a professional jockey, about whether or not she threw a race-and that is the last time he sees her alive. As Mark investigates her apparent suicide, he begins to suspect murder, and soon dark forces gather to thwart his efforts to find the truth.

Professional reviews

"Felix Francis has taken the helm of the family business, the bestselling horse-racing mysteries of his father. He was the coauthor of four of the books before Dick's death in 2010. Two novels have appeared under his sole authorship since then, and he has captured his father's literary voice. Here a laid-back fellow is jolted into action by trouble in the racing world, the death of his twin sister, an up-and-coming jockey. Was it murder? There's no better narrator for this book as Martin Jarvis, who captures the accents and personalities to a tee. He moves through the text making the principal characters' emotions lucid and utterly convincing. Jarvis is a well-respected narrator and actor; listening to this, one understands why. D.R.W.
