Kidnapping is Andrew Douglas's business: they take them, he finds them. But it isn't so simple when golden-girl jockey Alessia Cenci disappears, followed by the young child of a Derby winner and the senior steward of the Jockey club.
From Italy to England to Washington DC, Andrew's caseload is suddenly violently overflowing. And he must fight triply hard to keep his own name off the growing list of victims.

This is my first experience of audio books and I have no doubt been hooked.The clarity and professional delivery was top class and I look forward to opening my next book.
I have always been a fan of Dick Francis and find his books an easy an entertaining listen. I always like the main character so I find that helps. A good listen if you like a story with a beginning ,middle and end
Nor listened to a Dick Francise book for a number of years - this was as good as all the others I have listened to, or read. Would recommend it
I have always been a Dick Francis fan, but having Tony Britton read the book to me made it so alive in my imagination. Great plot, great characters and great detail, one not to miss!
I've read and listened to plenty of Dick Francis stories, and this is one of the best - a good tale, set in Italy, England and the US. You get to know the characters well, and the story moves on at the usual Dick Francis pace. Well worth listening to.
Love books - audible been a god send with a new puppy - something to listen to in the early hours!
Forgotten how enjoyable Dick Francis books are. Really have enjoyed listening, gripped me from the start, end may be a bit far fetched, but hey it's a novel!
Like Tony Britten's narration, nice easy flow to it, feels as if he reads ahead before ha d so he knows what's happening.
the book is sold as unabridged but there are two parts of the story missing
