From Felix Francis, bestselling author of Gamble and co-author (with Dick Francis) of Even Money and Crossfire, comes Bloodline, the latest Dick Francis novel. Set in the cut-throat world of horse racing, Bloodline is a pacy thriller packed full of suspense, mystery and intrigue.
When Mark Shillingford commentates on a race in which his twin sister Clare, an accomplished and successful jockey, comes in third, he can't help but be suspicious. As a professional race-caller, he knows she should have won. Did she lose on purpose? Was the race fixed? Why on earth would she do something so out of character?
That night, Mark confronts Clare with his suspicions, but she storms off after an explosive argument. It's the last time Mark sees her alive. Hours later, Clare jumps to her death from the balcony of a London hotel . . . or so it seems.
Devastated by her death, and almost overcome with guilt, Mark goes in search of answers. What led Clare to take her own life?
Or was it not suicide at all . . .?
Packed with all the hair-raising suspense and excitement readers know and love from Dick Francis, Bloodline cements Felix Francis's reputation as a master of thriller- writing.
