Publisher's Summary

Jockey Kelly Hughes and trainer Dexter Cranfield had been barred from racing - a devastating event for them both. The charge at the secret enquiry? Throwing a race for personal profit.

It was a vicious frame-up and, worse, they had nowhere to turn to clear their names. Still Hughes refused to take the phony verdict lying down - even though his quest to clear his name might have him lying down permanently.

    Story
    "First past the post"

    Jockey Kelly Hughes finds himself banned from racing after a stewards' enquiry that seemed to have decided the outcome before it started. Unfair and unjust Kelly soon decides to make his own enquiries about it after being approached by the trainer's daughter to help her father out of his depression. The story is exciting and gives an insight into the racing community and its workings.

    Well told, well narrated, but perhaps a bit formulaic, it kept me gripped until the end and was entertaining, educational and insightful. When you need a story that is not too violent or extremely bloody but is still a gripping yarn Dick Francis will be a good choice.

    "A great yarn"

    Like all Dick Francis novels, this is a terrific yarn. The story is fast-paced and difficult to put down. The hero is attractive and believable and although there is considerable violence it is story-book stuff and not evil. No swearing or gratuitous sex.

    "English Equestrians"

    This was a fast and easy listen book. Takes place in England so the language is different and keeps your interest. I enjoyed hearing about the differences in our languages and also the difference in the equestrian world.
    The book is basically about a jockey and owner who are disbarred from the racing world. The jockey knows he is innocent and sets out to clear his name and find who framed them.

    Story
    "Another Great Dick Francis Book."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Enquiry to be better than the print version?

    I cannot compare. These are two different uses/methods for reading a book. When I am alone I like to read the narration on my Kindle, but when my husband and I are sitting in the living room, we like to bring up the audio version so that we can enjoy the book together.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I rarely feel as though I am on the edge of my seat while reading, but I do find that I read faster and faster when the book has me in its grip.


    Have you listened to any of Tony Britton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to all of them. Britton is great whatever he reads.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No; but I enjoyed it very much.


    Any additional comments?

    I have written reviews of Francis' books before, and I always say that one cannot go wrong buying one of his books. They are all very, very good books. I have enjoyed every one of them, all of them, always.

    "Story is not one of Francis' best"

    While the performance was okay, the story itself was lacking. It just wasn't all that interesting.

    "I ENJOY DICK FRANCIS BOOKS"

    A good listen when you're driving 5 hours, or just doing housework -- pretty much G or PG rated
