Publisher's Summary

Alexander Kinloch, artist, has worked out a good pattern for his life. His home is a small bothy on a remote mountain in Scotland; he paints on commission, from which he derives both pleasure and a decent income; he lives alone and likes it. One day, however, Alexander's peace is violently shattered when he returns home to find a group of strangers waiting for him. Afer a scuffle, he is left for dead with only the wind and the words "Where is it?" ringing in his ears. And the days that follow contain more danger than he could ever have imagined.

    "Thanks, an excellent book, a good listen."
    Would you listen to To the Hilt again? Why?

    I would listen again, the storyline was good, I listened over a long weekend, sandwiched between DIY and Gardening, Gave up TV and enjoyed the experience. Wanted to hustle it along occasionally, but that is part of the enjoyment, you felt you were there.

    Story
    "Tony Britton's narration is totally inappropriate"
    How could the performance have been better?

    Tony Britton is a very elderly man. The protagonist is a young man in his twenties and the crackling, plummy voice narrating the story was completely ridiculous and ruined an enjoyable book. Britton's female voices were like something out of Mrs Doubtfire. Sadly, He has lent his voice to many more of D F's books - which I shall be avoiding.

    Story
    "Loved it and learned lots!"

    The kids and I loved this. At first I thought the narrator's voice was too old to play a 29 year-old, , but he's such a good voice actor that it didn't matter. A real hit for adults and kids!

    "To the Hilt"

    I don't think you can go wrong with a Dick Francis novel and this story does not disappoint. Francis's stories are always very comforting to listen to and a great favorite that can be re listened to again and again.
