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.

Great story, characters
The realization of how overwhelming vulnerability was to each character during different parts of the story line was to them, no matter what their strengths were to deal with it
I think that Tony Britton's always reads Dick Francis characters with good understanding of the overall plot.
That there is still the internal fight that vulnerability can be perceived as you being less of a person, a victim, whereas the message of this book is that it can feel like this, but actually it's a state of being and not a reality.
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!
the book is sold as unabridged but there are two parts of the story missing
