Publisher's Summary

Matt Shore was an experienced pilot. He’d done it all. From big jets to flying in supplies to war zones. So when he gets a job ferrying high class punters around England’s race courses he might be forgiven for expecting a quiet life.
But then his plane explodes in a massive fireball. He could have been in it. Some quiet life. Instead he’s landed in the middle of a nightmare world where there is big money at stake. Very big money. From then on he finds himself hurtling down a tortuous trail where people are not all they appear, and all around him is sudden bloody death...

Reliable dick Francis

This book is typical dick francis. A little pessimistic, main character has a lot of adversity , but lots of character. Mind candy, not too deep, but enjoyable.

Poor narration

A rather dated tale but a typical Dick Francis, so engrossing enough. However, having listened to the excellent narration of many of his books by Tony Britton, this was spoilt by Ian Ogilvy's narration,which I found very poor. A pity.

Dull dull and yet more dull

Ian Ogilvy gives a one-dimensional and very dull reading of this rather trite and predictable story which will only really appeal to someone who's hooked on one- and two-engine planes. Yet another worthy but misunderstood hero who keeps coming to the rescue but rarely gets the credit. Where are all the interesting and entertaining characters who inhabited Francis' earlier novels? Not here, that's for sure. Not recommended.
