Then a bomb blast rips through the private boxes, killing some of Max's trusted staff as well as many of the guests. As survivors are rushed to the hospital, Max is left to survey the ruins of the grandstand: and of his career. Two close calls are too close for comfort, and Max vows to protect his name, and himself, before it's too late.

Surprise! Dead Heat refers to the Oven!
Love this one. Our hero is a chef with a restaurant (but near a race track-ha!) Love the twist. Love the narration. And again, the Francis men never disappoint with the great clean writing, interesting plots, excellent narrators, and best of all, the skillful great characterization of everyone in the stories. This is no exception. This one has a modern update with terrorism. Enjoy!

Another Very Interesting Story
This story is very creative and unique. As described in the publisher's summary, this story is centered around the culinary world with a bit of the horse racing world as its backdrop, and is centered around the 2000 Guineas Stakes.
Chaos breaks out when nearly all of the 40 guests, at a private catered affair, who ate a particular meal fell victim to severe food poisoning, including the owner-chef.
A very entertaining story. As always Simon Prebble performed very well.
