Publisher's 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 ...

    "10/10"

    Yet again a 10/10 A1 100% top class mystery with the audible top performance of Tony Britton.

    Story
    "Surprisingly unpleasant hero and poor sound"

    This is the first Dick Francis novel that I've actively disliked, mainly because the hero is rather unpleasant, and as much of a blackmailer in his way as his enemies are. I had no empathy for him, nor for his rather privileged girlfriend.

    The recording has obviously been taken from worn-out audiotape - fuzzy, muddy, changing volume and clarity at virtually every chapter, and with a massive speeded-up chunk in the middle. Recordings of this poor quality really shouldn't be offered on Audible at standard prices! The final thing that wrecked this one for me is Tony Britton's utter inability to do convincing female voices, especially his falsetto American gal accent (exactly the same failing that spoilt the otherwise excellent 'High Stakes').

    "Another hit."

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