Publisher's Summary

Valentine, a blind, confused old man on his deathbed, seeking his peace with God, makes his last confession to a visiting friend, Thomas Lyon, mistaking him for a priest. This puts Thomas in a moral dilemma. Wild horses wouldn't drag from a priest the secrets of the confessional. Engaged in directing a film set in the world of racing, Thomas finds that the solution to this quandary could mean the difference between life and death.

You have to love a good Francis novel.

Where does Wild Horses rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

As with many Francis novels it would rank above average. Keeps you thinking.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Kept you thinking,, kept my interest wondering what would come next.
