Jockey Kelly Hughes and trainer Dexter Cranfield have been barred from racing - a devastating event for them both. The charge at the secret enquiry? Throwing a race for personal profit.

What the Critics Say

"[Has] everything required in a modern thriller…an intricate plot that unravels skillfully, mayhem, sex, suspense, excitement, and surprise denouements." (New York Times Book Review)
"As usual, Dick Francis is superb in his depiction of the horse-racing world, full of greed and betrayal. Equally superb is the clarity of expression that Geoffrey Howard brings to the novel….The pacing is flawless." (AudioFile)

    "Vintage Dick Francis"

    There is no such thing as a bad Dick Francis book. In audio format, some are better than others and this one "listens" very well. Francis never pads his writing therefore there is no justification for making abridged versions of his work. As it is, I am always wishing for more at the end and have re-read and re-listened to many of his titles over the years. Finding some of his early works recorded by Audible was a real treat.

    "A Real Treat!"

    I'm relatively new to Dick Francis, and really love listening to his books. I especially like how Geoffrey Howard reads the books. I will definitely look for more books narrated by him! I enjoyed this book very much and while it is true because it's about an "Enquiry," so not as centered on horses per say, I really enjoyed the building of the case and how Kelly Hughes figured out who was behind his being barred from racing, and how he went about getting his reputation restored. This is a winner!

    "Classic Dick Francis"
    Any additional comments?

    Unless there's a hidden Francis mystery lurking about which I have not discovered yet, I believe I've read them all. Now I'm choosing to re-read them in audio. Enquiry & Geoffrey Howard do not dissapoint.

    "Unexciting Dick Francis Novel"

    I am sorry to give this book a negative review as I am an avid Francis reader and I have never read a bad Dick Francis novel until now. There was nothing really wrong with the reading of this book, however the story line was completely predictable and unexciting. Also, because the plot centers around an "enquiry," there is very little mention of horses.

    "Great Thrilling read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Enquiry to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version.


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

    I don't on the whole have the time to do a book in one sitting.
