When he wakes in a pitch-black room with his hands bound, Roland Britten – accountant and champion steeplechase jockey – knows he’s entered a nightmare of someone else’s making.
Wracking his brain to figure out who’s out to get him and why, he comes up empty, but somehow manages a death-defying escape. It isn’t long, though, before he’s recaptured. Now, with his life at stake, he must take every risk to outsmart his well-disguised enemy and save himself ...

Awful Recording Spoilt the Story

As with many of this series the recording standard is ... rubbish!! I'm sure the story underneath was usual Dock Francis standard. Don't spend the over inflated price for it.

Disappointed with quality

What disappointed you about Risk?

I downloaded this twice as I thought the missing chunk was down to a glitch in my download rather than the actual audio book. Having read other reviews I realized that other people had the same problem. This ruined the book for me as it occurred very early on at an important part of the story.

What does Tony Britton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I've always enjoyed Tony Britton's readings of the Dick Francis novels, He doesn't impose his own personality on the characters unlike some other actors I've listened to.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I liked the story but was so unhappy with the production.

Any additional comments?

Somebody ought to listen to the books before they are uploaded to ensure that they are complete!
