Perry Stuart is a TV meteorologist who routinely works before the cameras. His life calm and ordered, his face familiar to every British household, Stuart's profound weather knowledge and accuracy have given him high status among forecasters, but no physical baptism by storm. Not, that is, until a fellow forecaster offers him a Caribbean hurricane-chasing ride in a small aeroplane. By frightening accident, Stuart discovers secrets from the ride, and back in England he faces threats and danger as deadly as anything that nature can evolve.

"Francis' writing is smooth and intelligent, moving the reader right along." (Publishers Weekly)
"Francis offers up intrigue, adventure, and a gripping, fast-paced plot." (Booklist)
I am a fan of Peter May whose atmospheric stories mean the housework etc. has to wait, but they stay with me long after they're finished..
I couldn't put it down and housework etc . was done with it as accompaniment. Not a lot of the science was understandable to me, butit didn't detract from the story as the overall weather conditions were obvious. As always our hero was super human, but that all added to the fun. A great read and Tony Britton's voice is so right.
I usually enjoy Dick Francis's books, but not this one I'm afraid. Despite flying into hurricanes and some other intrigue I was left with the impression that nothing much happened. I have no idea how the main character came to some of his conclusions. Overall an anti-climax I'm afraid.
again have not read print book
no real favorite
he is a good storyteller
the incident in the eye of the hurricane
"Another Dick Francis Classic"
Another Dick Francis Classic. Great with a fast moving engaging plot, a page turner,a great companion for anyone.
