______

A beautiful Italian girl driving home in an open top sports car. A little boy playing on a south coast beach. The Senior Steward of the Jockey Club on his way to a press reception in Baltimore.

One after the other, they suffer the same nightmare ordeal: kidnapping.

But there is one thing connecting these cases, for the Italian girl is a jockey and the little boy an only son of a racehorse owner. Soon a picture of the person behind this international chain of crime starts to emerge - a lover of Verdi, a man with a cool and calculating brain and an aficionado of the racing world.

Andrew Doublas, brought in to advise and help the victims and their families, proceeds with all his customary diplomacy and courage, only to find himself playing a dangerous part:

The role usually reserved for his clients . . .

Packed with intrigue and hair-raising suspense, The Danger is just one of the many blockbuster thrillers from legendary crime writer Dick Francis.
