©1996 Dick Francis; (P)1997 Chivers Audio Books
My favourite audio book by one of my favourite author's. For some reason I find this story addictive and return to read it time and again. Great narative by the incomprable Tony Britton who copes with the wide variety of accents needed for such a diverse set of characters. Thrilled to have it on audio book so that I can play it whenever I feel like in the car, rather like a large plate of shepherd's pie it has become comfort food to gladden my heart on a bad day. If you have not yet made the aquaintance of Alexander Kinloch then I would urge you to give it a whirl.
I don't think you can go wrong with a Dick Francis novel and this story does not disappoint. Francis's stories are always very comforting to listen to and a great favorite that can be re listened to again and again.
"One of Francis' Best!"
This is a favorite Dick Francis book. Racing is very peripheral, and I really liked Alexander Kinloch. This is the 2nd Dick Francis book with an artist as the main character. At times I wanted to just smack his step-sister, Pamela, but overall, loved how the story unfolded and enjoyed the unorthodox detective Alexander hired to help him figure out what was going on. This is a book I read or listen to once or twice a year.
I enjoy his use of different accents and just overall, find his voice a great one to listen to!
"Another Dick Francis Classic"
Another Dick Francis Classic. Great with a fast moving engaging plot, a page turner,a great companion for anyone.
