Publisher's Summary

A beautiful Italian girl driving home in an open top sports car, a little boy playing on a South Coast beach and the senior steward of the Jockey Club on his way to a press reception in Baltimore. One after the other they suffer the same nightmare ordeal - kidnapping. But there is one thing connecting these particular cases. For the Italian girl is a jockey, and the little boy an only son of a racehorse owner.

A picture of the person behind this international chain of crime starts to emerge - a lover of Verdi, a man with a cool and calculating brain and an aficionado of the racing world. Andrew Douglas, brought in to advise and help the victims and their families, proceeds with all his customary diplomacy and courage. Only to find himself playing a dangerous part: the role usually reserved for his clients.

Audio file FAULTY - at least one chapter totally missing

Fantastic book ruined by atrocious conversion from tape master to digital file - there is a chunk of the book TOTALLY MISSING. Bolinda and Audible should be ashamed at this slapdash approach. Delivering 85% of a crime thriller novel is NOT acceptable.

Beware two chapters are abridged!

Great story. It's a pity that two chapters have been abridged. Chapter 5 and 18 are shortened.

Excellent well worth listening to

If you could sum up The Danger (Unabridged) in three words, what would they be?

Great story, characters

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Danger (Unabridged)?

The realization of how overwhelming vulnerability was to each character during different parts of the story line was to them, no matter what their strengths were to deal with it

What about Tony Britton’s performance did you like?

I think that Tony Britton's always reads Dick Francis characters with good understanding of the overall plot.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

That there is still the internal fight that vulnerability can be perceived as you being less of a person, a victim, whereas the message of this book is that it can feel like this, but actually it's a state of being and not a reality.

Superb

Shame that 6 pages of chapter 18 missing, hence only 4 stars.
Cracking story as usual from DF! And always an accomplished narration from Tony.

Not unabridged

This version has some of it missing so not as advertised. Does not effect the main plot but is a hickup in the storyline.

Tony Britton

I love listening to Tony Button. He brings the characters to life with his voice.
