Publisher's Summary

At nearly 18, easy-going Benedict Juliard has no stronger ambition than to ride in steeplechases as an amateur jockey. His father, George, driven towards a life of public service and politics, asks his son to enter into a pact that neither of them will commit any act that could destroy the father's growing reputation and career. Ben agrees, but five years later finds himself targeted in a vicious attack, and as George makes his ambitious drive toward the Prime Ministership and occupancy of 10 Downing Street, Ben is plunged into a frightening morass of lies and treachery.

    "Dick Francis wins again!"
    What made the experience of listening to 10-lb Penalty the most enjoyable?

    Tony Britton's voice is perfect for these stories
    An excellent story which, although I read the book years ago still managed to take me by surprise


    What other book might you compare 10-lb Penalty to, and why?

    Shattered is similarly excellent, different and compelling


    What about Tony Britton’s performance did you like?

    Confident, clear and varied according to character - he's just great, I could listen to him all day every day


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I bet Michael Connolly's Harry Bosch stories would be great as Audio books and read by Tony Britton would be gripping
