I'd been waiting a long time to read Gamble, Felix Francis's first outing as a solo author, and I'm glad I finally got the chance recently.

It's no mean feat to step out from under the shadow of another successful author, let alone when that author was your father, but Felix has ensured with Gamble (and his other books) that he owns the genre in his own right.

Maintaining the trademark elements of horseracing and skulduggery, Felix adds his own twist and thoroughly modernises this style of thriller.

I'll definitely be reading more. ( )
