This book is not in the Dick Francis tradition. The main character is not believable. Menopausal, anorexic, and depressed to an extreme degree. One of the most enjoyable things about Dick Francis' books was the main character was someone we could look up to, someone who behaved as we hope we would in challenging situations. Most pages are spent on the main character's sad thoughts and stupid decisions or on medical conditions in far too much detail. Not enough pages on the crime / plot / progress of solution.
