Summary

Violence suddenly takes the lead in the life of Neil Griffon. Following a grisly accident that lands his father in the hospital, Griffon finds himself in charge of his father's stables. Before he has a chance to get his bearings, he is brutally assaulted and abducted. The price for his freedom will mean the betrayal and deception of those who trust Griffon most.

Griffon has no choice - a no-compromise crime czar gives him an ultimatum he dare not refuse. The czar insists that his own 18-year-old son be hired by Griffon's stable so he can ride the superstar horse, Archangel, in the Derby. And his son must be trained to win. Or else.

Not Dick Francis' best story

Excellent narration as always but the characters were more 2 dimensional than ever. The plot seemed a bit ridiculous but Tony Britton makes it listenable. Popcorn for the eardrums.

Strong and believable storyline

The set-up for this story seems a bit outlandish at first, with the hero being blackmailed and brutalised into taking on a relative amateur to his father's training stables. But the characters are very well-drawn and the motivations believable. The novel becomes both an insider's view of the relentless training regimes and a thrilling journey into independence for the likeable and courageous hero. I enjoyed this novel tremendously, as well as the expert narration by Tony Britton. Good sound quality throughout.
