Dick Francis is the author of dozens of best-selling mysteries set at the racetrack, involving jockeys, horses, and the glamorous world of horseracing. The most delightful aspect of his stories is that one need know nothing about horses and racing to enjoy them thoroughly.
In The Danger, one of the top women jockeys in the world has been kidnapped in Bologna and consultant Andrew Douglas is sent to negotiate her release. As more kidnappings follow, the Italian police bungle the case, and the victims' families begin to worry about their loved ones' safety. The plot traces a treacherous track from Italian medieval streets to the lavish grounds of a very modern Washington, D.C. racecourse. Download and start listening now!
