From Felix Francis, bestselling author of Gamble and co-author (with Dick Francis) of Even Money and Crossfire , comes Bloodline , the latest Dick Francis novel.

As a professional race-caller, he knows she should have won. Did she lose on purpose? Was the race fixed? Why on earth would she do something so out of character? That night, Mark confronts Clare with his suspicions, but she storms off after an explosive argument. It's the last time Mark sees her alive.
