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.

Another winner by Dick Francis

Another winner. Tony Britton is excellent with his performance. You can easily visualize the characters from his distinctive way with each voice. The story is about a man working to recover kidnap victims and a jockey is kidnapped. The flow of the story keeps you waiting for the next happening and as usual, Dick Francis lets you into the mind of the main character. His characters are always someone I'd like very much. #AmateurDetective #GlobeTrotting #clever #tagsgiving #sweepstakes
