Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As a security consultant for a quiet and unspectacular British firm known as Liberty Market, Andrew Douglas works with the families of kidnap victims and local law enforcement agencies to free hostages and, if possible, capture their abductors. Andrew is very good at his job, and his success depends on remaining in the background; in this shadowy position, he has so far managed to bring 15 kidnap incidents to successful conclusions. The 16th case, arranging the release of Italy's most popular female jockey, Alessia Pucinelli, takes his life in an entirely new direction. Andrew's investigations into the unusual circumstances of her captivity lead him to suspect a pattern; it seems that this particular technique has been used by a gang before. Tony Britton's quiet, low-key voice gives the listener an excellent picture of the quiet, low-key characters that Francis (Hot Money) makes into heroes. Britton is also good at creating Italian accents that sound neither comic nor overdone, yet manage to be quite distinct from each other. For public library collections where Francis's works and/or suspense novels are popular.--Barbara Rhodes, Northeast Texas Lib. Syst., Garland Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
Internet Bookwatch
Dick Francis' The Danger provides a kidnapping case which tells of a woman jockey's kidnapping and the convoluted investigation which follows. Tony Britton has the honor of a dramatic rendition of Francis' latest horse racing/investigative piece. All are fine and vivid stories especially lending to unabridged readings.
