Celebrating the recent launch of “Iced”, Felix Francis latest novel, we welcome you to join us in hearing all about the famous author.

The younger son of crime writer and National Hunt jockey Dick Francis, Felix assisted his father with both the research and writing of his award-winning novels in a father and son writing partnership. Since Dick’s death, Felix has written ten successful novels, using the same gripping formula that has been loved by generations. Felix will talk about his collaborative writing with his father and how he researches his storylines that revolve around the world of horse-racing and always include resourceful heroes, psychopathic and sociopathic villains, pacey prose, and compelling action.

His latest novel, Iced, doesn’t disappoint, taking us to the new dizzy heights of St Moritz where the characters ride the Cresta run and take part in the famous horse race on the frozen lake. Felix will also talk about his time in Newmarket whilst writing his novel, Crisis, which was based solely in the headquarters of racing and how he and his father featured the town in a number of their plots.

The presentation will take place in the illustrious headquarters of the Jockey Club Rooms which were aptly featured in many of the books. There will be the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of Iced and ticket price includes a glass of prosecco.
