Publisher's Summary

Free choice? There's no such thing, according to Lee Morris, architect, engineer, jobbing builder, and entrepreneur. Choice is pre-ordained by your personality, he says.

Stratton Park racecourse, privately owned, faces ruin in the hands of a squabbling family. Lee, loosely connected but not related, is slowly sucked into the turmoil, unwillingly on the surface but half-understanding the deep compulsions that influence his decision. One road leads to safety, another to death. How do you know when you must choose? How do you know which? Lee's choices and their consequences bring deadly results, but the road out of the quicksand is there, if he can find it.

    "Clinical but gripping"

    Apart from the racing world Dick Francis's novels are also set in a world of 'gentleman crooks' - rather clinical ("It's a fair cop, guv") but nevertheless gripping right to the last page. The plots are great; the way they are played out does make you wonder whether Dick Francis lived in the same world we all inhabit. Nevertheless, I would heartily recommend this - and, indeed, most of Dick Francis's books - to anyone wanting an exciting yet undemanding read.

    "Fantastic !"
    If you could sum up Decider in three words, what would they be?

    Really great story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lee Morris is my favourite character - he is strong, sturdy and reliable and take things as he finds them.


    What about Tony Britton’s performance did you like?

    I love Tony Britton's voice. It has a lovely mellow quality to it. Could listen to him for hours.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes very much. The story was interesting. Great characters. I love a story where a building has to be saved or a business rescued.


    Any additional comments?

    Lee's sons added a whole new dimension. Having to factor in the care of children into this story was well thought out. Especially their living accommodation and entertainment.

    One of my favourite Dick Francis' books.

    "Two families in contrast!"

    Another Dick Francis favourite of mine. In contrast to the warring Stratton family, Lee Morris' dysfunctional marriage is a picnic. He faces the turmoil of the Strattons and their racecourse with dispassionate equanimity and wisdom, with numerous small sons in tow, bringing sanity and reason to the chaos.

    His self-built house with the hypocaust is an absolute delight, as is his life on the road with his boys in the caravan.

    As old family secrets are revealed, tragedy ensues, and young lives are moulded under the guidance of a father the envy of any young boy.

    A great read.

    "Decider"

    Brilliant to listen. As are all DF books, but it is a shame that you can hear background noise.
