Another great Dick Francis

What made the experience of listening to Dead Heat the most enjoyable?

The voice of the narrator and nice turns in the story: Allthough a completly new field (cooking instead of riding), it is well researched and this very interesting to get insights of how to run a restaurant.

What does Felix Francis and Tony Britton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Tony Britton has such a gentle and calm voice, he is perfect for bringing Dick Francis'characters to life, which are usually no heroes, but no fools either.

Disappointing

Sadly the story is fairly dull from halfway through onwards and the reader sounds too old for the role - very sorry about this as I've loved his reading of previous Dick Francis books.
Wouldn't recommend it..

A good listen

As Always Tony Brittons narration is excellent as is the story. Dick Francis is one of my favourite authors. Detail and excitement.
