Publisher's Summary

For millionaire jockey Alan York, winning is a bonus. For Joe Nantwich, victory means no cushy backhanders; and for Bill Davidson, front running on strongly fancied Admiral, triumph means murder. His own.

excellent

This reading of Dead Cert is a pleasure. The narrator, Tony Britton, is superb. The individual characters are distinct, and Britton reads with panache.

Note to Tony Britton

Dear Mr. Narrator,

The story was good until I couldn't handle the narration anymore. Most of your reading was excellent. Unfortunately... well... please, never again use the "crying drunken man" voice. I couldn't handle it. Oh how I tried... on sunny days, chilly evenings, relaxing afternoons... but no time is a good time to listen to that voice. I was disappointed. I don't blame you... somebody should have told you. But I cannot finish this book. Please re-record and send me the replacement.

Kind regards,

Zachary

Stone Cold Classic

The first Dick Francis and one of his best. Manages to combine an excellent plot with credible characters whilst at the same time immersing one into the world of horse racing. This may have been written in the '60s, but isn't at all dated. Tony Britten is a superb reader and perfect for Francis, although the sound quality is not particularly good.
