Refusal

(2013)
(The third book in the Dick Francis Novels series)
A novel by

 
 
Refusal is the new Dick Francis novel from bestseller, Felix Francis.
When Sir Richard Stewart, chair of the horse racing authority, demands ex-investigator Sid Halley examines some suspicious races, he is given a firm no. Sid retired six years ago - and nothing will make him go back.
But he's wrong.
Next day, Sir Richard is found dead. Then Sid's six-year-old daughter goes missing and he receives an anonymous call: declare the alleged race-fixing clean, or else. With his family in danger, how can Sid refuse?
But this anonymous foe has underestimated the guile and determination of Sid Halley. Extreme situations demand extreme solutions and Sid will do anything to get his life back, or die trying.
The work of thriller master Dick Francis continues through his son Felix's solo efforts: Bloodline, Gamble, and now Refusal.
Praise for Dick Francis and Felix Francis:
'From winning post to top of the bestseller list, time after time' Sunday Times
'The Francis flair is clear for all to see' Daily Mail
'The master of suspense and intrigue' Country Life
'Nail-biting, suspenseful' Choice
Felix Francis is the younger son of thriller-writing legend, Dick Francis, with whom he co-wrote the four most recent Dick Francis Novels, Dead Heat, Silks, Even Money and Crossfire, with Felix taking an increasingly greater role in the writing. Sadly Dick died in February 2010 but his work will live on through Felix. Refusal is Felix's third solo Dick Francis novel.
Felix trained as a physicist and spent seventeen years teaching A-level physics before taking on the role as manager to his father, and then as author. He lives in Oxfordshire.
