Meanwhile, DCI Knox is working undercover on the trail of an international drugs ring with connections in the pop music business. Posing as "Jeremy Rowlands", a record promoter, he sets off on a nationwide promotion tour with American superstar Shula Sun in an effort to track down the men behind it.
The two trails converge in the Cotswolds, as more lives are lost, before a dramatic climax at the Grand National at Aintree.
If you liked the earliest of the Dick Francis books, where he really got into the British racing scene with down-to-earth characterizations and believeable, but just a little-over-the-top situations, you are likely to enjoy Snort of Kings. The reader does well with the various accents, and the writer pays homage to Francis at a couple of spots (maybe more) in the book. All-in-all, a very enjoyable listen.
