Publisher's Summary

The privileged world of horse racing, filled with sleek thoroughbreds, burnished leather, and the silken sheen of jockeys’ colors, is a wonderful place to spend a few hours. Let best-selling, internationally-popular author Dick Francis take you to the immaculate stables of the de Brescou estate, where dark forces are lurking. Someone is killing the de Brescou racehorses with a “bolt” gun, shooting them silently, leaving no clues. Before the noble family, which includes his fiancée, is torn apart, jockey Kit Fielding must find the assassin. There are higher stakes than the horses, though. The de Brescous could lose control of their family business as well.

Bolt spent 13 weeks on The New York Times best-seller list. From regal countesses to dapper racing officials, it puts you in the company of truly intriguing characters. The impeccable pacing of this mystery, enchanced by Simon Prebble’s assured narration, is sure to keep you on the alert each step of the way.

    "Another Winner for Francis and Audible!"
    Would you listen to Bolt again? Why?

    I will surely listen to the book again. It is one that I have read several times in hardback version and am sure it will get listened to again!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Dick Francis almost ALWAYS keeps one on the edge of their seat. When I have to put it down, I can't wait to get back into it...


    Have you listened to any of Simon Prebble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think so.


    Any additional comments?

    You really can't go wrong with Dick Francis...and having the book read by an Englishman is truly a great experience!

    "Read this one Second"

    This is the second of two mysteries that feature Kit Fielding. The first is "Break In." As ever, Francis writes great and Prebble reads great. There's really not much more to say....

    "Terrific"

    This was one of my first audible purchases many moons ago when it came out on cassette and was abridged at that time. I have been hoping that it would eventually come out unabridged and be read by Tony Britton -- who I think does a great job with the Dick Francis stories. I am still looking forward to hearing it even with a different narrator. Thanks so much for bringing out one of the "archive" stories. I hope you will also produce the sequel "Break In".
