Publisher's Summary

At nearly 18, easy-going Benedict Juliard has no stronger ambition than to ride in steeplechases as an amateur jockey. His father, George, driven towards a life of public service and politics, asks his son to enter into a pact that neither of them will commit any act that could destroy the father's growing reputation and career. Ben agrees, but five years later finds himself targeted in a vicious attack, and as George makes his ambitious drive toward the Prime Ministership and occupancy of 10 Downing Street, Ben is plunged into a frightening morass of lies and treachery.

Dick Francis wins again!

What made the experience of listening to 10-lb Penalty the most enjoyable?

Tony Britton's voice is perfect for these stories
An excellent story which, although I read the book years ago still managed to take me by surprise

What other book might you compare 10-lb Penalty to, and why?

Shattered is similarly excellent, different and compelling

What about Tony Britton’s performance did you like?

Confident, clear and varied according to character - he's just great, I could listen to him all day every day

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

I bet Michael Connolly's Harry Bosch stories would be great as Audio books and read by Tony Britton would be gripping

Another enjoyable experience from Dick Francis

Although a pensioner and new to audio books I can only admire how easy I found the transformation from hard print to audio.I have read most of Dick Francis's books but must admit that listening to Tony Britain deliver each chapter was 10/10 of a top quality book.
