Publisher's Summary

The privileged world of horse racing, filled with sleek thoroughbreds, burnished leather, and the silken sheen of jockeys’ colors, is a wonderful place to spend a few hours. Let best-selling, internationally-popular author Dick Francis take you to the immaculate stables of the de Brescou estate, where dark forces are lurking. Someone is killing the de Brescou racehorses with a “bolt” gun, shooting them silently, leaving no clues. Before the noble family, which includes his fiancée, is torn apart, jockey Kit Fielding must find the assassin. There are higher stakes than the horses, though. The de Brescous could lose control of their family business as well.
Bolt spent 13 weeks on The New York Times best-seller list. From regal countesses to dapper racing officials, it puts you in the company of truly intriguing characters. The impeccable pacing of this mystery, enchanced by Simon Prebble’s assured narration, is sure to keep you on the alert each step of the way.

An old favorite

The audio brought back the pleasure of this story after many years. I read the book twenty years or so ago, but the story didn't feel dated.

Didn't hold my attention

This author was recommended to me as an author who writes mysteries with little or no undesirable language. I avoided his books for quite awhile because I just didn't think I'd enjoy mysteries about horses and horse racing. I listened for about 2 hours, and I'll agree that the language was acceptable - except for one point where a character is upset and he exclaims "J**** Ch****. However, the story just did not interest me. I bought the book during one of Audible's sales, and only paid $5 for it, so I saw it as an opportunity to try a book by this author. Glad I didn't pay more for it.
