Publisher's Summary

A British jockey, riding in Norway, has disappeared, and with him has gone a day's takings from the turnstiles of Oslo racecourse. The Norwegian police have found no trace of him, nor have the British, and the case is being filed as just one more unsolved theft. David Cleveland, investigator for the Jockey Club, is a last resort. He goes without much expectation, and finds himself in waters as dark and deep as the fjords.

Typical Francis

Where does Slay-Ride rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is among the best Dick Francis novels that I have listened to, with twists and turns all along the way.

What other book might you compare Slay-Ride to, and why?

Slay-ride is a typical Francis novel, including the racing world and a detective, but set in Norway.

Have you listened to any of Tony Britton’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Tony Britton is the best at reading Dick Francis novels, getting all the tensions over in a very pleasant voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The twist of fate, for a turn coat was especially well done in the novel

Tony Brittonis as good as ever -story is not so

this is not one of Dicks finest efforts - never really gets going and the characters do not
really shine true as in other Dick Frances story's
