Publisher's Summary

James Tyrone was the troubleshooting gracing correspondent of the Sunday Blaze, a newspaper dedicated to exposing scandals I the noisiest (and most profitable) way. Ty was accustomed to hot water, but from the day a Fleet Street colleague died after give him some serious advice, he found himself wading deep into more danger than he expected. What he thought to be the fairly routine uncovering of a minor racing fraud turned into a major hunt involving ruthless international crime.

A spanner in the works gets chewed up by the cogs, Ty couldn't emerge unscathed. And throughout he had to deal with the further problems of his difficult marriage and a perilous liaison with a beautiful, chilly-hearted dress designer.

    "Vintage Francis"

    The central character in Forfeit, James Tyrone,is a reporter who gets involved in a suicide, murder, and uncovers a nation wide scam by crooked bookmakers. As with all of Dick Francis' books, the plot is gripping, the action swift and the characters drawn strongly enough to engage you with them through the story. An early novel - written in 1968) so be prepared for typewriters and telephones. Well read by Tony Britton and an enjoyable listen that will sweep you along.

    "My favourite Dick Francis story"

    This was a re readfor me but it'smany years since I ladt read this story. The image if the hero, in a state of intoxication, trying desperately to get his wife to safety, is a strong one and still had me anxious and desperate for him to succeed. Tony Brityon 7s, for ne, the voice that best narrates the Dick Francis stories. His accent is of the correct era and social niche and he is a consumate actor who gives every character dptheir distinctive voice.

    "One of the best"

    Narrator great. Story compelling. Nice to have a different take on romance (quite a risqué topic) love how he describes the racing. A+++
