It is said that everyone over a certain age can remember distinctly what they were doing when they heard that President Kennedy had been assassinated, or that Princess Diana had been killed in a Paris car crash, but I, for one, could recall all too clearly where I was standing when a policeman told me that my wife had been murdered.Bill Russell is acting as a volunteer steward at Warwick races when he confronts his worst nightmare--the violent death of his much-loved wife. But, the aftermath proves much worse when he is accused of killing her and then hounded mercilessly by the media. Losing his job and in danger of losing his home too, Bill's life begins to unravel completely. Even his best friends turn against him, thinking him guilty of the heinous crime, despite the lack of any compelling evidence.As Bill sets out to clear his name, he finds that proving one's innocence isn't easy. He believes he can track down the true culprit, but can he prove it before he becomes the murderer's next victim? Guilty Not Guilty is a journey of greed and jealousy set against the grief of personal tragedy, with many a twist and turn along the way.

Up until this book I thought that Felix Francis was doing a pretty good job of capturing the suspense and character development that I so enjoyed in his father's ( Dick Francis ) great mysteries. For the first third of the book our protagonist runs around breaking into tears and seems to have no clue how to deal with the police or his predicament. It made me want to do a "Cher" - slap him and say "snap out of it". Then we have a third in which our "hero" recovers from an attempt to murder him and "proves" that he could not have committed the murder because his car did not move from a parking lot. If you are a smart murderer, you would have plan B regarding transportation. Then we have the trial which was nap inducing. There is no "whodunit" - we have the evil brother. The only thing that partially redeems this mess is the ending, but 2 pages out of 400 do not fix this book. It would have made a nice short story. I do not recommend. Kristi & Abby Tabby
