Publisher's Summary

It’s the classic law of the invader. Get to the strongest guy and smash him, then watch the weaker ones fall like ninepins. Which is just what a vicious gang of horse dealers decides to do when their little kickback scam is threatened with a spot of old-fashioned honesty.

But they haven’t reckoned with bloodstock agent Jonah Dereham, a man who belies his quiet exterior with a steely and implacable resolve. They can threaten him, try to burn down his home, even attempt to kill him. But they’ll soon wish they hadn’t.

©1974 Dick Francis (P)2014 Bolinda Publishing Pty Ltd.

Very good... but I had to slow it down

Had to play this one at 0.85 speed cause it felt horribly rushed at the standard speed. Like the narrator was trying to cut the length by talking faster.

That said, one I found a speed that didn't distort the performance it was a lovely listen.

fantastic narrative

having been a fan of Dick Francis for almost 20 years now, I whave read and re read all of his books. The narrative form has ticked every box, when reading we enter our own imagination. The narrator has his voices down to a tee. I throughly recomennd to any one. five stars.

Knock Down. My favourite Dick Francis.

I love the way Dick Francis writes. This book displays his research and empathy at it's best, the struggles of loving an alcoholic. Always will be my choice to read or listen to. Thank you.
