Publisher's Summary

A beautiful Italian girl driving home in an open top sports car, a little boy playing on a South Coast beach and the senior steward of the Jockey Club on his way to a press reception in Baltimore. One after the other they suffer the same nightmare ordeal - kidnapping. But there is one thing connecting these particular cases. For the Italian girl is a jockey, and the little boy an only son of a racehorse owner.
A picture of the person behind this international chain of crime starts to emerge - a lover of Verdi, a man with a cool and calculating brain and an aficionado of the racing world. Andrew Douglas, brought in to advise and help the victims and their families, proceeds with all his customary diplomacy and courage. Only to find himself playing a dangerous part: the role usually reserved for his clients.

Beware two chapters are abridged!

Great story. It's a pity that two chapters have been abridged. Chapter 5 and 18 are shortened.

Excellent well worth listening to

If you could sum up The Danger (Unabridged) in three words, what would they be?

Great story, characters


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Danger (Unabridged)?

The realization of how overwhelming vulnerability was to each character during different parts of the story line was to them, no matter what their strengths were to deal with it


What about Tony Britton’s performance did you like?

I think that Tony Britton's always reads Dick Francis characters with good understanding of the overall plot.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

That there is still the internal fight that vulnerability can be perceived as you being less of a person, a victim, whereas the message of this book is that it can feel like this, but actually it's a state of being and not a reality.
