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.....

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.

another great story. As usual taught me something I never expected...how tick spread disease and could be used to affect the odds at a race.

Francis never disappoints!

Great narration for an excellent story. Where the modern trend is to fill the pages with graphic sex scenes, horrific violence, and the worst of crude
language, Dick Francis instead entertains with suspense and a rational storyline.

Dick Francis at his best

Although his computer descriptions make the book anachronistic, his plot and character development are excellent. A very talented narrator makes this well worth listening.
