This book grabbed me at the start just like others by Dick Francis but it fell short in plot and suspense. The principal character is the victim of several failed attempts to discredit him or kill him but the reader never really understands why he is targeted. Not what I have come to expect from this author. The narration was good and kept me engaged enough to finish.
Tedious and meandering plot. I just could not get through it and called it quits.
Entertaining as the quintessential detective mystery laced with delightful, humorous dialogue. This narrator, Johnathan Keeble, is wonderful, giving unique voices to the characters. I want to listen to all of Reginald Hill's books but there are complaints about another narrator and I can't even get through his online samples. Any chance that Audible can find more Hill narrations by Keeble? Buchanan and Dooley are excellent, too.
I have read nearly all of Christie's books and I usually find the Poirot mysteries the most enjoyable, however, this may be my favorite by the author. It kept me guessing until the end.
