Publisher's Summary

A dead hitchhiker, empty canisters found at the bottom of several trucks, and the murder of a harmless mechanic are the bizarre events that lead ex-jockey Freddie Croft to suspect that his transport company, Driving Force, is involved in drug smuggling, or something far worse.

A Good Suspenseful Mystery....

I enjoyed this story... and Simon Prebble's narration. The story had enough mystery and suspense to hold my attention throughout. Prebble is the voice of Francis' novels, the voice that brings the story to life. Other Dick Francis novels that I like better are "Break In" and "Bolt"... as I well know, some stories are better than others. Recommend.....

Wonderful

I love Dick Francis he was an awesome author and this book is an example of it. He brings his characters to life, Freddie, Nina, and all the others are bursting with energy,

Simon Prebble is one of the best narrators and really adds to the story, making each character unique.

Another Francis Masterpiece

Dick Francis is hands down the best mystery writer. This book offers intriguing characters and a well developed plot. Then again, all of his books do. Simon Prebble brings it all together with his engrossing style.

Brilliant! (as the Brits say :-) ).

GREAT story, very talented narrator - with a compelling voice, thoroughly enjoyable listen!
I love Dick Francis books, either read or listen to the whole set at least once a year. Reading them is good, but narration makes the story so much more alive! Mr. Francis had such mastery over the language that I always felt I personally knew the characters; hearing his expertly crafted tale is SUCH a treat, and brings out nuances and meanings the printed word simply can't express.
I'm so glad he wrote so many books; it means listening to them can go on and on. Belated thanks, Mr. Francis! :-)

Driving Force

Enjoyed the story. Not one of my favorite Francis novels, but kept me listening until the end. Prebble is a great narrator every time.

good, but not great

I enjoyed Sick Francis' Break In and Bolt stories much more than this one. But Driving Force was good enough for me to give Francis another try.
