Until, that is, a fellow forecaster offers him a Caribbean hurricane-chasing ride in a small airplane as a holiday diversion. But a frightening accident teaches Stuart more secrets than wind speeds, and back home in England he faces threats and danger as deadly as anything nature can evolve.
Dick Francis "has simply never failed. Every one of his opening sentences pulls the reader in and doesn't let go until the last, perfect word," according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

"Fast-moving action." (The Washington Post)
I love Dick Francis books and would love to see more of them on audible (not co-written). I enjoyed the story very much, it is always interesting to learn about something I know very little about, so the weather aspect was fun for me. However, this narrator drove me nuts, his tone and voice so intense, like he's on a constant half shout. Calm down!
This book contains many elements of interest but flying and weather are the tops.There is also a mystery of course and that is the main theme and the slowly revealed cause of some erratic behavior by the main characters. This is a good fast moving book. The characters are well drawn and one loves or hates them accordingly. The beauty of Francis' books are the element of education you get from them all twisted up in the mystery and I love that. I learned about hurricanes, weather fronts and flying. If only school was like this!
Another great one from Dick Francis.....this one just a bit different from his others, but still a super read!
Yes, Francis always keeps me there!
to much detail about the weather, dick francis is about horse racing, really awful story
stick to what he knows about.---------------HORSE RACING
he is ok, does his best with a crap story
I love listening to Audible audiobooks. I love Dick Francis books. Therefore, I thoroughly enjoyed reading and listening to this book; however, having said that, this particular book of his is not my favorite one. But any Dick Francis book is certainly worth the time and effort (and expense) of reading.
I was disappointed in the ending. Maybe this is the main reason I didn't enjoy this one of his as much.
