REVIEWED BY JOSH EMMONS
In collaboration with his son Felix, Dick Francis is in fine equine form with Even Money, his latest tale of racetrack intrigue. Soon after small-time bookie Ned Talbot is approached by a man claiming to be his father, the stranger is murdered in a parking garage. Turns out there’s an international gang desperate for his “father”‘s briefcase; Ned must uncover the truth of his parentage if he’s to survive. With wit and an expert’s understanding of both horses and homicide, the Francises will keep you riveted.
