    Story
    "Father - Son Bonding Moments!"

    I enjoy Dick Francis' novels and Simon Prebble's narrations. They are easy listening. The Audible description of this story is good. It has mystery, suspense and a little bit of action. Nearly 18 years old, Ben has his heart set on becoming a steeplechase jockey but his father manipulated Ben into joining his parliament campaign as his driver. Ben soon had to become his father's body guard when mysteries, murderous things starts to happen which are aimed at getting the father to quit the race for parliament. Ben's instincts about the protection of his father leads to finding out that his father's car had been tampered with. The plot within the story is believable. Simon Prebble is an excellent narrator.
