Publisher's Summary

Henry Grey doesn't particularly care for having been born the heir to an earldom. He is a reserved young man whose greatest problem is his mother's matchmaking plots and whose greatest joy is to ride as an amateur steeplechase jockey. But on a sudden impulse, he throws in his respectable desk job to join a firm that transports racehorses all over the world. Yardman Transport proves to be Henry's passport to many things, not the least the girl he loves, and a tidy little racket that brings him face to face with death.

Not a typical Dick Francis

I have been a Dick Francis fan for years. This book was not typical of his work. It started out very slowly and I almost quit listening. But it picked up and ended with a breathtaking finish.
It had little to do with horseracing; there was romance and adventure. I thought the ending was abrupt. It left me with questions unanswered.

Not one of Francis' best

I normally love Dick Francis, but the plot of this book stretches credulity beyond the breaking point! The reader is wonderful with a lovely British accent and a wide range of voices ( including a woman's voice like a bad Monty Python skit), but the good reading can't make up for bad writing. The plot is both boring and unbelievable at the same time. Villains are too bad to be believed. The main character is too steady, strong and lucky. I would not recommend this.
