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
- Mrs Archdeacon
Disappointed with quality
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.
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.
I liked the story but was so unhappy with the production.
Somebody ought to listen to the books before they are uploaded to ensure that they are complete!
