Read Pulse author Felix Francis

He had no form of identification on him and no one claims the body Doctor Chris Rankin a specialist who treated the deceased and who struggles with mental health issues is intrigued by the nameless dead man obsessed even and starts asking uestions However someone doesn't want the uestio. I enjoy having the Francis style continued by Dick s son Felix He has been true to his father s legacy but this one was rather annoying to read The plot line was interesting and I understand that Felix had a protagonist that was dealing with serious issues causing her poor behavior but I got tired of her and felt that her obsessions were exhausting and continually putting herself and her family in danger I liked the fact that Felix gave his readers a woman protagonist instead of the men in racing that have been featured in the past I think I would have liked her better if he had written to her strengths and had her less manic Maybe she can be featured again when she is in a better place because she is a great heroine with her medical background and her interest in working the races as a doc I understand that all his heroes get themselves into difficult situations but they usually do so inadvertently They usually lead from strength not because they are continuously making stupid choices I look forward to the next book so nice to have a favorite author s work continued by his talented son

Ns answered and will go to any lengths to prevent it including an attempted murder But when no one will believe that someone tried to kill Chris the doctor is left with no option but to discover who the nameless man was and why he died preferably before following him into an early grave. I would like to thank Netgalley and Simon Schuster for an advance copy of Pulse a stand alone racing thriller set in CheltenhamChris Rankin is an on duty AE consultant when an unconscious man is brought in with heart problems Sadly the man does not respond to treatment and dies shortly after being admitted Chris has her own mental health issues and starts to obsess about the identity of the well dressed stranger whom she is convinced was murderedI enjoyed Pulse The plot while hardly realistic held my interest throughout and gets uite exciting at the end I must admit that I found it hard to believe that Chris found out so much when the police couldn t but it makes for a good read I also think that the plot is uite simple as there are no real twists but again it makes for a good easy readMr Francis excels in his description of Chris s mental issues and the first person narrative adds extra impact making it very personal Depression and anorexia nervosa are not easy subjects to either discuss or describe and yet he nails them accurately and without fuss both from Chris herself and others reactions It s impressive These conditions do not make Chris a particularly likeable character but the first person narrative does much to mitigate this I found the medical treatments described early in the novel a bit too detailed and unnecessary as they slow down the momentum of the novel but fortunately Mr Francis keeps them to a necessary minimum after that In contrast the role of the race course medic and how they system works are fascinating I learned a lot in an interesting wayPulse is a good read which I have no hesitation in recommending

    I have been reading Dick and now Felix Francis books for decades and they have a certain formula which always makes for a comfortable read The characters are always flawed or in some way disadvantaged but always immediately engaging The books are typically first person and each chapter ends with a titillating foreshadowing statement that propels you to decide to read a little Each book is set against the background of
