Jefferson Hinkley is back in the newest Dick Francis thriller by the New York Times-bestselling author of Damage. In his role as an undercover investigator for the British Horseracing Authority, Jeff Hinkley is approached by a multi-time champion jockey to discuss the delicate matter of losing races on purpose. Little does he know that the call will set off a lethal chain of events, including the apparent suicide of the jockey and an attempt on Hinkley's own life. Never one to leave suspicious events alone, Hinkley begins investigating the jockey and the races he may have thrown. But there are others out there who intend to prevent his inquiry from probing further... at any cost.

Front Runner is up to the usual high standards of the Francis family novels. Jeff Hinkley is investigating an illegal betting scheme, when there are attempts on his life. Jeff is the usual bloodied but unbowed Francis hero. He waltzes off to the Cayman Islands to recover during Christmas, when more untoward events occur. We are treated to background information on medical conditions, scuba diving, and betting at the races. I learn as well as am entertained when I read a Francis novel. Front Runner kept my interest to the last page.
