Summary

Steeplechase jockey Kit Fielding has just ridden another winner for his patron – the Princess – when his distraught twin sister Holly comes to him with terrible news. A newspaper is printing stories that will put her husband, Bobby Allardeck, and his stables out of business.

Putting aside the age-old Fielding-Allardeck feud, Kit decides to try to find out who is behind these cruel stories.

This, he quickly discovers, puts a lot of noses out of joint. Not one to be put off easily, he keeps digging, upsetting powerful and ruthless people who'll do anything to protect themselves.

But this is family and Kit will risk everything – including his neck – to find the truth ...

Variable Quality

Chapter 11 voices speeded up for no reason
Chapter 13 sound went very muffled and dull

Engaging

A enjoyable listen, some of the story is far fetched but it kept my attention and I wanted to know how it ended. I don’t like the female characters in the book, they are very stereotypical, it’s a “man’s book” of its time in this regard and the annoying American accent used by Tony Britton for one of the female characters really got on my nerves.

Another hit.

Exciting and clever yet somehow relaxing to listen to. True to form. Always consistent. Would recommend.

One of the best Dick Francis books

Most enjoyable, great storyline, well read, loved the characters.
The story traveled well without being to full of observations that are just their to fill the space the information was in its self informative and whilst the story became a little obvious towards the end, one found ones self being happy for the outcome for the characters themselves.

Break In

Great book. Dick Francis at his best. And the narrator was top-notch.
