Publisher's Summary

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 ... ?

    "Good easy listening"

    Good story very easy listening with interesting twist at the end. Michael Maloney's narration draws the listener in.

    "The narrator needed a little more passion"

    I love all the Dick /Felix Francis books, but the narrator sounded so deadpan, even when he reached a critical part of the story. yes he gave you the impression this part was important because he raised his voice and spoke quicker but.....

    "Brilliant book"

    I loved this book from the first page, it is a brilliantly written tale. Is his sister bad or are there mitigating circumstances. It holds the answers till the end. If you love the horse world and are intrigued by racing and how do they loose without everyone knowing how they do it without the stewards being aware???? There are the tense moments when we dont want the hero to be hurt and how he avoids it. Hard to review this book as I dont want to spoil it for anyone that wishes to read this book. Felix I feel you will surpass your father with your novels and I look forward to the next book you write. Did not want it to end.

    Story
    "The Francis legend gallops on"
    Would you try another book from Felix Francis and/or Michael Maloney?

    Fluent fast paced,just like Dick Francis novels.
    Bravo!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bloodline?

    The narrator gets the race broadcaster tone and fast exciting description of the race right on!
    Felix Francis will in time be as good as his father.Whose narrative was smooth, words flowed on the page.
    I think it takes practise to get that good.
    In any case I am a fan of Felix Francis!


    Which character – as performed by Michael Maloney – was your favorite?

    The hero


    Do you think Bloodline needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No.Just another book that has to with horse racing.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to the next one.

    Story
    "Like father like son"

    Felix Francis continues to show that he can deliver novels in the same genre as his dad - and very good they are too. I am even beginning to enjoy Michael Maloney's presentations although, on balance, Tony Britton still has the edge. Keep them coming!
