Publisher's Summary

When jockey Martin Stukely dies following a fall in a steeplechase at Cheltenham races, he accidentally embroils his friend Gerard Logan in a perilous search for a stolen videotape.

Gerard Logan is a glass-blower on the verge of widespread acclaim for his work. He has long been accustomed to the frightful dangers inherent in molten glass and maintaining a glass-making furnace, but now he is suddenly faced with a series of unexpected threats, first to his livelihood, then to his courage, and finally, to his life.

    "A bit of everything"

    An enjoyable book and relatively rare for Dick Francis in that the main character was and had not been a jockey. There's a bit of romance, some action, detective work and an assortment of experts, thugs, criminals and wealthy racing types. The glass blowing stuff is interesting and informative. If you can follow up the book by a visit to John Ditchfield at Glasform in Singleton Lancashire where much of the inspiration and instruction came from.



    Well narrated by Tony Britton who has done many if not all of Dick's books.

    "Shattered but not broken!"

    It flowed from start to finish with precise narration rising and falling with the required emphasis.

    "Not the best but ok"

    Enjoyed this to a certain degree.. Some very drawn out parts and the story got a bit silly from time to time but worth a listen,.

    "Excellent as ever"

    Always a good novel from Dick or/and Felix Francis. What makes it all the more exciting for me is the excellent reading voices of Tony Britton and Martin Jarvis. Wish they read more novels by other authors for you. I never tire of listening to the "Francis" novels.
