Refusal (Dick Francis Book 3)
One of the most appealing aspects of this story, as with all Francis books, is to be able to follow the main character's thoughts as the book evolves. Slices of Sid's new life and the British racing scene are well drawn. Several new characters in Sid's world are cleverly presented and I was pleased to find old favorites as well.
An unexpected conversation with a psychiatrist and amusing observations of fellow passengers on a train are nice touches. Like his father, Felix reaffirms the values of human decency and the struggle between the man of good against the forces of lust for power, dishonesty and greed.
Good always triumphs in the end. Refusal follows hard on the heels of Bloodline and Gamble, both set in the world of racing and both written with the famous Francis flair and style. It is spare, efficient and unflashy, but clearly draws the reader into the story.

Refusal (Dick Francis Book 3)
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. 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 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. Felix Francis is the younger son of crime writer and National Hunt jockey Dick Francis, and over the past forty years Felix assisted Dick with both the research and the writing of many of his novels.
Felix's love of racing, writing talent, and knowledge and experience as a physics teacher was invaluable in the father-and-son writing partnership.
