Hich is the highest compliment I could possibly pay to this book It will be a joy if Felix continues to write novels such as this so I can continue to enjoy DickFelix Francis novels for another thirty years Read a while ago What I long to eturn to time and again that Dick Francis fix is above all apart from the horses the profound integrity of the Get Social - The Ultimate Online Marketing Guide For Social Good Companies reluctant heroeading these books I feel somehow clean and encouraged to strive for such clarity within myself This is something else than the author taking the moral high ground I can t uite put my finger on it ight now In any case Felix Francis does not disappointFelix Francis hits his stride as a solo author while expertly channeling his father s literary spirit Gone is any previous awkwardness and the protagonist is as comfortable to spend time with as in any vintage francis while with as in any vintage Francis while supporting characters are duly updated into the digital era While not exceedingly memorable or innovative in plot the mystery itself was up to par and the sum of the itself was up to par and the sum of the certainly added up to than a mere effort in the style of this is almost uncannily Francis through and throughI emember having three main thoughts after1 The legacy is alive and kicking I need not fear having ead all but 2 or 3 of the oeuvre that I may never again get that Francis fix2 Felix s name ought to be writ large on the cover Regardless of his artistic debt to his father this is his book3 I hope that in the future Felix as Dick did from time to time finds the freedom to explore other themes and settings to evolve the spirit of the legacy in new unexpected directions I for one would happily follow him there Felix is still not as good a writer as his father although his plot and action scenes are well done It s his development of admirable characters and elationships that I find lacking He is getting better at it but he hasn t got the heart of his father There are very few characters I like in the bookI did like how the title of the book was woven into the story Nicholas Foxton gambled with his life as a jump jockey every day but when he had a bad fall and broke the vertebrae of his neck the doctors won t certify him to Spanked in her Messy Diaper (An ABDL Tale) race any too much of a gamble Instead he goes back to school and becomes a certified financial investor gambling with other people s money in investments And this setting of the world of financial investments was interestingly explored Of course life itself is a gamble as Nicholas is shockingly made aware when his coworker standing next to him is murdered at theaces With Nicholas s Tales From Underwood racing connections many of his clients are connected to theacing world so he freuently comes to the *races to meet with them At one such meeting jockey Billy Searle informs *to meet with them At one such meeting jockey Billy Searle informs that he wants his money back immediately and although Foxton informs him that it takes time to liuidate investments Billy is hysterical about getting the money the next day or he ll be dead And indeed when Billy is hit by a car and badly injured Nicholas wonders if Billy s need for money is perhaps about a bad gambling debt The topic of gambling in many forms was a nice thread throughout the bookAnother After the Kiss (Sex, Love Stiletto, repeated theme that Nicholas and his job was boring and compared to being a jump jockey it was dry and dustyAnd one other writer techniueepeated all through the book was less appealing short sentences at the end of a section to foreshadow events or for shock value Maybe it was better being boring and alive than flamboyant and dead Don t worry about it Patrick said It ll all blow over in a couple of days I wish he d been Malcolm McDonald on Marketing Planning right But my luck was about toun out Little did I Digital Marketing In A Week realize at the time how Herb Kovak s legacy would turn out to be a poisoned chalice It was as if we had left all out troubles behind in London But they were about to come looking for us Good when used sparingly but used too much it became annoying to me I was starting to count them Overall a good story that I enjoyedeading I ve got to stop comparing him to his father however I could do that easily
