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.

Great story but even more outstanding narration!

First book I've read on horses since Black Beauty & what a pleasant surprise it was. The story is a superb blend of - for me - an introduction to the world of horse racing & it's many facets along with drama & suspension. Tradition is subtly evident but the real gem throughout is the remarkable vocal fluency & dexterity of the narrator. That alone makes for great enjoyment!

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.
