To the Jockey Club, the racing world would be a better place without Julius Apollo Filmer. An expert in corruption with a devastating line in witness intimidation, and proving to be a slippery character to put behind bars. Baffled, they call in undercover security agent Tor Kelsey to keep an unflinching eye on Filmer and his associates. A mission that takes him from the finest of English racecourses to the wild Canadian interior, on a luxury transcontinental train journey to end them all.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The narrator was easy to listen to and added just enough vocal changes to create charater differentiation and interest. I've read Dick Francis before and once again he showed he was the master of this particular genre. Fastpaced and good twists and turns that keep you guessing and wanting to find out how things end. Worth a listen particularly on those long plane flights.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Edge?

Hard to pick one. That's a Dick Francis skill. He takes you on a roller coaster ride from one crisis to the next.

Which character – as performed by Tony Britton – was your favorite?

Main character.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Train track to horse track the race to save lives is on.

Any additional comments?

No.
