This one is the story of a clever accountant who is also an amateur jockey who finds himself getting habitually kidnapped. I find that when I finish the book each time, the part that stays with me most is the long drawn out stay of our hero in the sail locker aboard a boat during his first sojourn being kidnapped. Very annoying. Of course, by the time I read it again 10 years later, I've forgotten...
It is frankly, the most boring of Mr Francis's books.
