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.

Another Great One

Dick Francis fills my library. His son Felix is just as good as his father.

A Knockdown success

A Dick Francis tale is always a good read and well worth the time and Tony Britton makes it all the more worthwhile with his way of reading that is well paced and has all the right emotional impact! This tale is no exception from Dick Francis and like any other in his list always a good one to pick up for a light thriller

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.
