Silks by Felix and Dick Francis [paperback 2009]
Brilliant storyline, well told characterisation, read the entire book within 24 hours of delivery. Can't wait til I can find the next book on Ebay. I have read [almost] all of the Dick Francis stable of titles and own my own copies of the majority. Even to replacing some that have fallen apart when pages have been turned too many times, reading about these characters are like visiting old friends, always familiar but generally with suprises thrown in along the way. Although the recuring theme has horses as the connecting thread no two stories cover exactly the same ground twice really. May Felix Francis carry on the family name and romp home a winner with every new book he produces.
