Sabotage. The latest novel by Felix Francis in the horseracing series started by his father is titled, Dick Francis’s Damage. Protagonist Jeff Hinkley is an undercover investigator for the British Horseracing Authority. He ends up taking actions way above his pay grade to get to the bottom of events that have been taking place to sabotage racing and intended to undermine confidence in its ruling body. The exposition starts with fast-paced action, then relaxes to a slow unraveling of the mystery, and then moves to a fast-paced resolution. Fans of the series are those most likely to enjoy this installment.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
