Enquiry | [Dick Francis]

Enquiry

To a jockey, losing his license is the equivalent of being struck off, or disbarred, or cashiered. When steeplechase rider Kelly Hughes lost his license his first feelings were of bewilderment and disbelief, for he was not guilty of the charges. Nor, to the best of his knowledge, was the trainer he had ridden for, who lost his livelihood as well. When his first stunned state of shock subsided, Kelly began to wonder why he had been framed, who had done it, and how it had been achieved.

Publisher's Summary

To a jockey, losing his license is the equivalent of being struck off, or disbarred, or cashiered. When steeplechase rider Kelly Hughes lost his license his first feelings were of bewilderment and disbelief, for he was not guilty of the charges. Nor, to the best of his knowledge, was the trainer he had ridden for, who lost his livelihood as well. When his first stunned state of shock subsided, Kelly began to wonder why he had been framed, who had done it, and how it had been achieved. He did more than wonder: he began to search. The nearer he came to the solution the fiercer grew the retaliation. But Kelly had been left with nothing much to lose, the only serious strategic mistake his enemy had made. A first-rate story of men in the racing game.

    "A great yarn"

    Like all Dick Francis novels, this is a terrific yarn. The story is fast-paced and difficult to put down. The hero is attractive and believable and although there is considerable violence it is story-book stuff and not evil. No swearing or gratuitous sex.

    "English Equestrians"

    This was a fast and easy listen book. Takes place in England so the language is different and keeps your interest. I enjoyed hearing about the differences in our languages and also the difference in the equestrian world.
    The book is basically about a jockey and owner who are disbarred from the racing world. The jockey knows he is innocent and sets out to clear his name and find who framed them.

    Story
    "Another Great Dick Francis Book."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Enquiry to be better than the print version?

    I cannot compare. These are two different uses/methods for reading a book. When I am alone I like to read the narration on my Kindle, but when my husband and I are sitting in the living room, we like to bring up the audio version so that we can enjoy the book together.


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

    I rarely feel as though I am on the edge of my seat while reading, but I do find that I read faster and faster when the book has me in its grip.


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

    I've listened to all of them. Britton is great whatever he reads.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No; but I enjoyed it very much.


    Any additional comments?

    I have written reviews of Francis' books before, and I always say that one cannot go wrong buying one of his books. They are all very, very good books. I have enjoyed every one of them, all of them, always.

    "Story is not one of Francis' best"

    While the performance was okay, the story itself was lacking. It just wasn't all that interesting.

    "I ENJOY DICK FRANCIS BOOKS"

    A good listen when you're driving 5 hours, or just doing housework -- pretty much G or PG rated
