Publisher's Summary

Things are hotting up in this latest thriller from best-selling author Felix Francis, in his fifth solo novel Front Runner.
Jefferson Hinkley is back. In his role as an undercover investigator for the British Horseracing Authority, Jeff is approached by the multi-time champion jockey, Dave Swinton, to discuss the delicate matter of losing races on purpose. Little does Jeff realise that the call would result in an attempt on his life, locked in a sauna with the temperature well above boiling point.
Dave Swinton is then found dead, burnt beyond recognition in his car at a deserted beauty spot. The police think it's a suicide but Jeff is not so sure. He starts to investigate the possible races that Swinton could have intentionally lost but discovers instead that others are out to prevent him from doing so, at any cost.

A Good Storyline.

I thought Peter Darwin & Annabel Would have Had A Bigger Role as he Had a Whole Book to himself when Dick F Was Alive.

Come on You Can Do Better If You Are Going to Use your Dads Old Characters. Give them a Bigger Role.
