Matt Shore was an experienced pilot. He’d done it all. From big jets to flying in supplies to war zones. So when he gets a job ferrying high class punters around England’s race courses he might be forgiven for expecting a quiet life.
But then his plane explodes in a massive fireball. He could have been in it. Some quiet life. Instead he’s landed in the middle of a nightmare world where there is big money at stake. Very big money. From then on he finds himself hurtling down a tortuous trail where people are not all they appear, and all around him is sudden bloody death...
This book is typical dick francis. A little pessimistic, main character has a lot of adversity , but lots of character. Mind candy, not too deep, but enjoyable.
A rather dated tale but a typical Dick Francis, so engrossing enough. However, having listened to the excellent narration of many of his books by Tony Britton, this was spoilt by Ian Ogilvy's narration,which I found very poor. A pity.

Dick Francis has yet again taken another aspect of life and mixed it with the world of racing and thrilled yet again.
New narrator to me but glad I took the leap. It was great after all.
