Publisher's Summary

To a jockey, losing his license is the equivalent of being struck off, or disbarred, or cashiered. When steeplechase rider Kelly Hughes lost his license his first feelings were of bewilderment and disbelief, for he was not guilty of the charges. Nor, to the best of his knowledge, was the trainer he had ridden for, who lost his livelihood as well. When his first stunned state of shock subsided, Kelly began to wonder why he had been framed, who had done it, and how it had been achieved. He did more than wonder: he began to search. The nearer he came to the solution the fiercer grew the retaliation. But Kelly had been left with nothing much to lose, the only serious strategic mistake his enemy had made. A first-rate story of men in the racing game.

A great yarn

Like all Dick Francis novels, this is a terrific yarn. The story is fast-paced and difficult to put down. The hero is attractive and believable and although there is considerable violence it is story-book stuff and not evil. No swearing or gratuitous sex.

English Equestrians

This was a fast and easy listen book. Takes place in England so the language is different and keeps your interest. I enjoyed hearing about the differences in our languages and also the difference in the equestrian world.
The book is basically about a jockey and owner who are disbarred from the racing world. The jockey knows he is innocent and sets out to clear his name and find who framed them.

First past the post

Jockey Kelly Hughes finds himself banned from racing after a stewards' enquiry that seemed to have decided the outcome before it started. Unfair and unjust Kelly soon decides to make his own enquiries about it after being approached by the trainer's daughter to help her father out of his depression. The story is exciting and gives an insight into the racing community and its workings.

Well told, well narrated, but perhaps a bit formulaic, it kept me gripped until the end and was entertaining, educational and insightful. When you need a story that is not too violent or extremely bloody but is still a gripping yarn Dick Francis will be a good choice.

A case of mistaken identity.

As usual, Dick Francis has excelled. The plot and the characters are both excellent. However, the producers of this audiobook should give more attention to detail. The narrator was not Jeffrey Howard and full marks go to Tony Britain for another excellent performance.
