©1994 Dick Francis; (P)BBC Audiobooks Limited
"Nothing short of dazzling." (Publishers Weekly)
"Another winner from this popular writer." (AudioFile)
Another Dick Francis Classic. Great with a fast moving engaging plot, a page turner,a great companion for anyone.
"Another gem from Dick Francis"
As with most of his novels, Dick Francis chooses a subsidiary theme in addition to that of horse racing. In this case, he chooses two: film making, and knives. Both are extraordinary - gripping and full of inside knowledge.
As usual, the central character is honest and likeable. He goes out of his way to care for the vulnerable, even though his own life is in the balance.
Dick Francis's love for, and special relationship with horses is evident as usual. His description of the filming of the wild horses at dawn is beautiful, and very moving. All in all, this is a really smashing book. Highly recommended!
I didn't want to stop listening and couldn't work out who was guilty until near the end.
As always Dick Francis writes a gripping thriller. I found it very difficult to stop listening to this as the tension built up. Tony Britton has the perfect voice to listen to and manages to change his voice for each character which adds to the enjoyment of the story.
