Summary

Hired to fly four racing buffs to the track, pilot Matt Shore expects it will be the kind of job he likes: quick and easy. Until, that is, he’s forced to make an emergency landing just minutes before the plane explodes.
Luckily, no one is hurt, but it isn’t long before Matt realises that he’s caught up in the rat race of violent criminals who are dead-set on putting anyone who stands in their way on the wrong side of the odds.

Poor narration

A rather dated tale but a typical Dick Francis, so engrossing enough. However, having listened to the excellent narration of many of his books by Tony Britton, this was spoilt by Ian Ogilvy's narration,which I found very poor. A pity.

Dated, but good story spoilt by poor narration

Good storyline, although in my opinion, not one of Dick Francis's best novels and the text is somewhat dated. However, the big disappointment was the fast and extremely poor narration by Ian Ogilvy.

Reliable dick Francis

This book is typical dick francis. A little pessimistic, main character has a lot of adversity , but lots of character. Mind candy, not too deep, but enjoyable.
