Publisher's Summary

A gripping racetrack thrilller from the best-selling author of Driving Force and Comeback
The stakes are deadly at Stratton Park. Architect and family man Lee Morris never gave much thought to the shares he inherited of the Stratton Park racecourse, the multi-million dollar property owned by the powerful Stratton family. His mother had first received the shares to keep her quiet about the abuse she had suffered at the hands of her first husband, Keith Stratton. Now, much to Lee's chagrin, he is being drawn into the thick of the Stratton family squabbles as they wage a furious debate over the future of the race track.
So when Lee packs his six sons into his renovated old bus to visit the racetrack, he finds himself embroiled in a supremely dangerous game that extends much deeper than horse racing. And perhaps too late, Lee realizes his involvement in the racetrack may cost him more than he bargained for. It may cost him his life.

Thank you Audible for adding another Dick Francis title to your collection. He is one of my all time favorite authors and I won't be happy until Audible offers all of his titles in unabridged format. I am constantly re-reading the 30 or so titles I already have; good think they won't wear out.

What I love best about his mysteries is that each novel brings us a new protagonist with a different background--pilot, wine merchant, banker, photographer, glassblower, etc.-- and a unique storyline but with all the stories related in one way or another to the world of British horse racing. His writing is consistently engaging.

While Tony Britton is my favorite narrator of Dick Francis books, Simon Prebble does an excellent job. His voice is pleasant to listen to and his diction is good. The recording is crisp and clear.

Great Book!

Dick Frances always delivers. His character development is the best in the business. He and James Lee Burke are the only authors I can go back and listen to the same book multiple times.
Simon Prebble is fantastic as the narrator.
I highly recommend this book as I do all of Dick Francis books.
