5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Audiobook!!! 10 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
This is the first Dick Francis Audiobook that I listened to. I think this is one of the best stories that he has written! The story is excellent it has all the usual touches that make Francis so good. The plot moves from Scotland to London among other locations. The Language is creative and Francis describes everything so realistically, he paints images with words and lets the story become clear in your head before revealing the conspirator and his plan. This is well worth the buy and I would reccomend it to anyone!

A top Novel "To The Hilt" is a must read novel, Dick Francis portarays his characters brilliant whether it be Alexander Kinloch or the Earl of Kinloch he seems to give them an extra edge a must read book

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy but intriguing story 26 Feb 2014
By Qualbob
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked the book up while staying with friends and only managed to get half way through it before I had to leave it behind when I left. Desparate to discover the ending I kindled the final half. True to form it was well worth it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing like a good Dick Francis 13 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A Dick Francis is not a good Dick Francis without the hero being beaten up. This book does not disappoint, it opens on a beating and miraculous survival with not too many debilitating injuries. Then again, there is a definite formula here and I can't distinguish which ones I have read and which ones I haven't. Still, they are enjoyable escapism and keep you turning the pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast moving treasure hunt 13 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A favourite Dick Francs book which I possess in hardback and give to friends as a paperback present. It is a fascinating melange of Scottish treasures and the fight to restore money stolen and sent abroad.
