I'm a Dick Francis Fan, so seeing so many more added to the store has just made me so happy! This title I hadn't read until just last month, so seeing Audible has it, was great! I love Tony Britton's voice, and this story, while not completely on a racing incident, had racing peripherally in the story line. I loved the story of Ian reconciling with his father, and then learning about his zany family added to this one's charm. As to who was trying to kill Ian's father, it had me guessing til the end. For one to enjoy cuddled up maybe even with a friend, you can't go wrong with this book!

Would you consider the audio edition of Hot Money to be better than the print version?
I liked this book! It was different, not your average cop-detective story, nor your run-of-the-mill who done-it. The characters are so realistic some of them could be my own brothers. I missed them once the story ended. It also paid respect to the police, not making them all out to be dumb-clucks. In fact, most of them were not only kind, but also had great intellectual input. It may have dragged a little, yet it always came back with flair. My first listen with this narrator, who also seemed to have a great intellectual input, along with female voices his own mother, should be proud of. Good Show!
What other book might you compare Hot Money to and why?
I have been reading who-done-its for thirty years, no other book compares to this. It's in a league of it's own. Original plot line, charactures and completely different approach to solving crime. I seems in crime writting today there is a standard routine to all of them, but not this one.
Which scene was your favorite?
My favorite scene was the night he went into the house and felt ....well..creepy. So creepy they left.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
It was particually moving when his father goes to his first race; nothing like it, he gets addicted.
Any additional comments?
I miss listening to this, I am addicted.

Really good story. Great performance. Be aware that the digital version was clearly created from aging masters because, at times, it is like listening to a poor cassette tape copy. If you are prepared to put up with that I'd still highly recommend this audiobook.

A well-written story with a large cast of believable characters and a plot that held my attention throughput. Highly recommended.
