Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“[Felix Francis] has one priceless advantage. He couldn’t have had a better teacher.”—The Washington Times

Praise for Dick Francis’s Gamble
 
“[Felix] Francis…proves himself more than capable of carrying on the family legacy alone...Francis shares his father's gift for brisk storytelling—and for creating a sympathetic, wounded, but determined hero.”—Publishers Weekly

Présentation de l'éditeur

When race caller and television presenter Mark Shillingford calls a race in which his twin sister, Clare, an accomplished jockey, comes in second when she could have won, he believes the worst: that she deliberately lost, and the race was fixed.
 
When Mark confronts Clare with his suspicions, she storms off—and it’s the last time Mark sees her alive. Hours later, Clare jumps to her death from the balcony of a London hotel. Devastated and guilt-ridden over her death, Mark goes in search of answers. Why would Clare throw a race? What led her to take her own life?
 
Or was it not suicide at all?

Difficult to say whether I prefer the 'old' Francis thrillers or the more recent ones. Totally irrelevant, the complaint made by some people that he didn't write them all alone (apparently he & his wife wrote them together). In each book there is a different background, though almost always with racing hints and links, and the villain gets his come-uppance and the 'goodies' triumph in varying degrees. I keep a collection of his books and re-read them from time to time, when I need an evening of 'escapism' - less fattening than chocolate!

More proof that son Felix is a first-rate heir to the Dick Francis franchise 7 octobre 2012
Par Sharon Isch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Last time, in "Gamble," Felix Francis's first go-it-alone novel since his father's death, the second son of the the late Queen Mother's former jockey spread his wings a bit and ventured beyond horseracing to also include and encompass the worlds of dodgy accounting and internet gambling. Which I greatly enjoyed. And I hope he'll be doing more of that. But this time, it's all back to the world of horseracing.

"Bloodline's" hero, Mark Shillingford, is a TV race commentator who has just witnessed his twin sister, Clare, a jockey, lose a race on purpose. Within hours of his confronting her on this, she'll be found dead on the sidewalk under a London hotel balcony. Accident? Murder? Suicide? What was it? Later, while going through her things, Mark discovers that Clare had been being blackmailed. And, in short order, he'll find that she wasn't the only one. The plot thickens. And danger lurks.

I think Felix Francis is a terrific mystery writer. And I really liked this one. But I almost knocked this 5-star novel down to a 4-star rating because the ending caught me off guard and I didn't think Felix had given readers a fair shot at figuring out the "who" in this whodunit. But just to make sure, I paged through the book for another look and saw that the clues were there. Guess I'd just let him divert my attention elsewhere. Looking forward to what comes next.

Keeps on taking me there 16 octobre 2012
Par MarkSr - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I might agree that Felix has not developed up to his full potential yet, but I think he has what it takes.. His books, like his Father's, do exactly what I buy them for, they transport me from my Inland Southern California home to the heather and downs of horse-country England.. Dick did an amazing job of character and place description, maybe taking a clue from female writers, spending copious amounts of time describing meals, clothes and rooms.. For a foreigner like me, I found that essential to "transporting" to the scene and feeling "right there" with the action. Gerard Logan, in "Shattered" has always been my favorite Francis character. His love of simple food like fried (or were they poached?)eggs, has stayed with me for years, and has permanently affected what I like to eat on a (rare) rainy day.
I see all these elements in Felix's books. Not as good yet, but from someone who has tried to "write a book" with about 4-5 false starts, I have great respect for anyone who can see it through to the end.. Like dancing, it takes a while to get into the swing of things.. but from my perspective, If you liked Dick Francis, and you can cut the boy some slack for being a different person, I see no reason why you wouldn't continue to enjoy this franchise.

The King is dead 7 octobre 2012
Par BarbaraJean - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Being a great Dick Francis fan and having read a number of books Felix co-authored with his father I pre-ordered this book. Oh dear. First I could not get past the amoral character of the main character and his twin sister. The action didn't flow. I was often left wondering just why and what the killer was doing. Mostly the problem seemed to be none of the people in this book were very likable and I really didn't care what happened to them. Don't think I will buy another book by this author. I may go to the library to read future books to see if Felix can write a better book as I liked his previous book "Gamble".

Boo for Bloodline 6 décembre 2012
Par Miss Triss - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have given Felix Francis a chance. I read the ones he wrote with his inestimable father Dick Francis, and the one he wrote alone before Bloodline. They go from acceptable to not - and by the time we arrived at Bloodline, we have arrived at awful. I will not be reading his work again. He does not handle English well. His sentences are boring. His plot is thin. His understanding of human nature is totally missing. Sorry, but just don't bother. However, if you have not read any or all of Dick Francis's books, you are in for a rare treat. I recommend them all. Whip Hand is my favorite, but choose any one and you will be glad to have done so.

Carries on the Tradition 16 octobre 2012
Par bobnaples - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
No matter what others may criticize about this book I'll tell you one thing. From the very first page till the last I was standing there with the main character going through everything he was experiencing being transported from real life into the English racing community and totally immersed in a heck of a good story. Few writers no matter what their "style" can grab you like Dick Francis and now proudly his son Felix.
