Product description

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?

Author information

Felix Francis is the younger of Dick Francis's two sons. Over the last forty years Felix assisted with the research of many of the Dick Francis novels, not least "Twice Shy," "Shattered," and "Under Orders." Since 2006, Felix has taken a more significant role in the writing, first with "Dead Heat" and then increasingly with the bestsellers "Silks," "Even Money," and "Crossfire," all father-son collaborations. He continued his father's legacy with "Dick Francis's Gamble." He lives in England.

Review quote

"[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"
