I have been a Dick Francis fan for years. This book was not typical of his work. It started out very slowly and I almost quit listening. But it picked up and ended with a breathtaking finish.
It had little to do with horseracing; there was romance and adventure. I thought the ending was abrupt. It left me with questions unanswered.

I normally love Dick Francis, but the plot of this book stretches credulity beyond the breaking point! The reader is wonderful with a lovely British accent and a wide range of voices ( including a woman's voice like a bad Monty Python skit), but the good reading can't make up for bad writing. The plot is both boring and unbelievable at the same time. Villains are too bad to be believed. The main character is too steady, strong and lucky. I would not recommend this.

This is the 4th time I've read this book over a number of years and it's still one of those stories you just can't put down.
