    I would like to thank Netgalley and Severn House for an advance copy of Dead Heat, the fourth novel to feature jockey Harry Radcliffe.When Harry attends John Dunstan s funeral he is handed a letter from John stating that if Harry is reading it he was murdered and had no intention of committing suicide as everyone believes Determined to investigate Harry finds links to his other investigations and some unsavoury practices.I enjoyed Dead Heat which is a fairly convoluted tale of murder and bad behaviour, very much in the style of early Dick Francis Initially I found it difficult to keep up with the plot and its frequent references to Harry s last case although I have read Dead Reckoning, the previous novel, obviously too long ago for the detail to have stuck Maybe this is the exception where reading the novels back to back makes sense Once in the swing of his new case it all got easier to follow although sorting out the myriad of characters and their relationships takes a little longer I found myself backtracking at some points to get it all clear It is an old fashioned novel and if not for the mentions of sat navs and the smoking ban I would have thought it was written 30 years ago The most obvious example is someone wanting John Dunstan s letter back and the lengths Har...

    Champion jockey Harry Radcliffe is wracked with guilt, reeling from the knowledge that his recent attempt to solve the murder of local prostitute Alice Goode has led to devastating consequences for his ex wife Annabel and her new partner Sir Jeffrey, as well as horse box driver John Dunston s suicide A letter handed to Harry at John s funeral contains the shocking revelation that the circumstances surrounding his death are not what they seem As Harry investigates, he uncovers links to his last case, as well as the death of his boss Mike Grantley s wife, Monica, in a skiing accident With a trip to Switzerland and a budding romance on the cards, Harry is a man in demand This is the fourth Radcliffe book, which could be read on its own but there are lots of references to the previous book which ...

    Again, I am liking this series set in the English racing world Do to the time spent investigating murders close to him and the injuries he has suffered as a result detailed in the earlier books, do read in order , Harry Radcliffe has missed a lot of races and is uncertain that he can make up the ground in order to remain Champion Jockey for the year So, the last thing he wants is to do a Phillip Marlowe and investigate another possible murder But when people close to him are threatened, he has no choice in the matter.The one thing I don t like in the stories are the author s decision to have Harry foreshadow events later detailed in the stories I wish she would just let the story flow But I hope she continues with the character and I ...

    Quite poor unfortunately, badly and not clearly plotted with annoying characters.

    Book four in the Harry Radcliffe series and it did not disappoint me This tale of murder revolves around the horse racing industry I enjoyed it and it kept me engrossed throughout.Thanks to Net Galley for my copy.

    Murders most foul.Harry Radcliffe, a champion jump jockey, is convinced that his friend, John Dunston did not commit suicide and his convictions are confirmed when he receives a letter from the man s solicitor In the letter, Dunston requests that Harry looks into the matter.Harry is lucky in some respects because the weather has turned particularly bad across the UK and all racing has been cancelled, giving him the much needed time to see if Dunston s death was suicide or murder.There are lots of positives about this book Glenis Wilson is very well versed in both training and running horses for both jump meetings and flat races I found the detail given to the training and running races to be particularly interesting The characters, particularly Harry Radcliffe are well rounded, real and believable Unfortunately, I found the constant referral to his cat and the love triangle he s found himself in with his wife and her new partner...
