Decider by Dick Francis

Decided to read “Decider” by Dick Francis, my first one by him. Lee Morris is an architect/ builder especially of ruins, has a large family of wife and 6 kids but is not very closely connected to his family from his mother’s side i.e. the Stratton family. The family owns a race course and after the death of the patriarch there is a dispute in the family with one segment wanting to sell off the race course and divide the gains between the family members and others wanting to retain the race course but wanting to modernise it. Lee gets drawn inexorably into his family affairs when he is prevailed upon to attend a shareholders’ meeting and comes to know a lot about the various misdeeds, crooks, skeletons in the family cupboard. It is a fast racy thriller with never a dull moment in it. Rating 4/5
