Product description

One of the youngest winners of the Grand National, Nick "Foxy" Foxton suffered a near-fatal injury that cut short his career. Years later, he's out for a day at the Grand National races when his colleague, Herb Kovack, is shot at point-blank range right in front of him. Like the police, Nick is baffled: Why would anyone kill such an apparently gentle soul? Then Nick finds a threatening note in the dead man's coat, and he begins to doubt how well he really knew his friend. And on discovering that Herb named him beneficiary in his will, Nick wonders why he's been entrusted with the legacy. Is this a generous gift from a friend, or is it, in fact, a poisoned chalice?

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 lives in England.

Review quote

"[Felix Francis] has one priceless advantage. He couldn't have had a better teacher."--"The Washington Times " "A suspenseful read. Francis aficionados will hope that Felix chooses to carry on the family tradition on his own."--"Publishers Weekly" on "Crossfire"
