"A rare and magical talent…who never writes the same story twice." (San Diego Union-Tribune)
"In the world of mystery writing, Dick Francis stands head and shoulders above the rest." (Ottawa Citizen)
This is another great listen from Dick Francis and read really well by Geoffrey Howard. This book ranges from England to the United States and back again. This one really kept me riveted and in a couple tight spots the main character got himself in, kept me seated in my car until he got himself out again! For a book you'll want to listen to over and over, this is a good choice!
I have read this book in book format several times. I have also watched the movie made from the book a couple of times. This was the first time I have listened to an audio version. I enjoyed it very much! There are a few of Dick Francis' books that disappointed me, but this was not one of them...excellent story, excellently read.
Geoffrey Howard is a talented storyteller and really brings this book to life! I am a huge Dick Francis fan and this book did not dissappoint me.
I listened to this book while driving back and forth to work.
I have listened or read 6-8 Francis books to date and this is my favorite. The lead character in this book is quite an interesting concept.
Entertaining and enjoyable. Can't go wrong with a Book by this Author. All ages would enjoy.
having been a fan of Dick Francis for almost 20 years now, I whave read and re read all of his books. The narrative form has ticked every box, when reading we enter our own imagination. The narrator has his voices down to a tee. I throughly recomennd to any one. five stars.
