The catastrophic power of a giant hurricane can raise coastal waves 30 feet high and blow through houses at devastating speeds.

But a frightening accident teaches Stuart more secrets than wind speeds, and back home in England he faces threats and danger as deadly as anything nature can evolve.Dick Francis "has simply never failed.

Narrator too intense
I love Dick Francis books and would love to see more of them on audible (not co-written). I enjoyed the story very much, it is always interesting to learn about something I know very little about, so the weather aspect was fun for me. However, this narrator drove me nuts, his tone and voice so intense, like he's on a constant half shout. Calm down!
