A cushy job transporting passengers between racecourses turns dangerous for pilot Matt Shore when his plane explodes and he's embroiled in a deadly plot.

Among the casts of these six action-packed adaptations are Bill Nighy, Nigel Havers and Siân Phillips.

Good value

Lots of stories included, with only minor adjustments to plots and very well done. The included Hret Lives was interesting
