Product Overview

Operating as an undercover investigator for the British Horseracing Authority, Jeff is approached by the champion jockey Dave Swinton to discuss the delicate matter of losing races on purpose. Little does Jeff realise that his visit to Swinton’s house will result in a brutal attempt on his life.

Shortly after Jeff narrowly escapes a certain and grisly death, the charred body of Dave Swinton is found in his burnt-out car at a deserted beauty spot in Oxfordshire. The police seem to think it’s a suicide, but Jeff is not so sure. He starts to investigate the races that Swinton could have intentionally lost, but instead soon discovers that there are those who would prevent him from doing so, at any cost.

Felix Francis is the younger of Dick Francis's two sons. Having spent seventeen years teaching A-level Physics, he took on the role of managing his father's affairs in 1991. Over the last forty years, Felix has assisted with the research of many of the Dick Francis novels, not least Twice Shy, which drew on Felix's experiences both as a Physics teacher and as a marksman, Shattered and Under Orders. With the publication of Dead Heat Felix took on a more significant role in the writing - Silks is the second novel of this father-and-son collaboration.
