    DescriptionDick Francis's beloved investigator Sid Halley returns in the riveting new mystery by New York Times-bestselling author Felix Francis. Six years ago, investigator Sid Halley retired for good. He'd been harassed, beaten, shot, even lost a hand to his investigating business, and enough was enough. For the sake of his wife and new daughter he gave up that life of danger and uncertainty, and he thought nothing would ever lure him back into the game. He thought wrong. Sir Richard Stewart, chairman of the racing authority, begs Sid to investigate a series of dodgy races. Sid adamantly refuses, but the following day, Sir Richard is found dead under suspicious circumstances. And then a man with an Irish accent contacts Sid, telling him to deliver a whitewashed report about the suspected race-fixing . . . or else. At first Sid ignores these warnings, knowing that once he submits to this criminal bully, he will forever be under his control. But as the intimidation tactics escalate--and Sid's own family comes under threat--Sid realizes he must meet his enemy head-on . . . or he might pay the ultimate price for his refusal.

    Review quote
    Praise for "Dick Francis's Refusal" "To the delight of Dick/Felix Francis fans, [Sid] Halley gets back into investigations after an eight-year hiatus . . . It's the kind of page turner that fans of either Francis have come to expect."--"Sacramento"" Bee" "In REFUSAL, [Felix Francis] has found a strong voice and confident style . . . in the same, comforting, ever-so-British style of his father, Francis assures readers that integrity will prevail."--"The Plain Dealer" "A fast-paced, highly professional evening's entertainment."--"Kirkus""Reviews" "This is fascinating reading on every level, from the neatly calibrated plot, moving from suspense to terror, to all the details of the racing world Francis provides.

A heroic return for Sid Halley."--"Booklist "(starred review) "Francis successfully resurrects one of his late father's most popular creations and only series character--disabled jockey-turned-PI Sid Halley . . . Longtime fans will be hard put to tell this gripping thriller from the senior Francis's work."--"Publishers Weekly" Praise for the Dick Francis novels by Felix Francis "Bloodline" "Francis knows how to control this wild run of a plot and also knows how to create a conflicted character in the midst of crisis. A stunning addition to the family line."--"Booklist" (starred review) "With "Gamble" in 2011 and now "Bloodline," Felix Francis shows that the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree...the story unfolds with the suspense and insistent pace readers expect from their annual Francis fix."--"Washington"" Times" "Francis ably follows in the footsteps of his father, Dick Francis, with his second stand-alone set in the English horse racing world... Fans will have a hard time distinguishing this solid thriller from the father's w
