Another great Dick Francis book and wonderfully read by Goffrey Howard. Here we have art mixed in with the horse world. While not really centered on racing this time, this is about Charles Todd, an artist, whose speciality is painting horses. He gets caught up in trying to unravel a mystery revolving around famous works of art of horses. Again, several places were very tense, wondering if he was going to emerge with his skin in tact! :-) This is a solid story with several twists along the way to make it even more fun. You won't regret listening to this one!

I have read every Dick Francis novel and enjoyed the audio presentation of this one very much. I have only 1 complaint, and that is that the reader does not make enough use of 'voices'. He has emotion etc and the book is well read and clear to listen to, but incomparison to some of the other readers he comes over as bland. I would still, however, recommend this to anyone who enjoys mystery without all the huge drama that sometimes comes along with it. It is realistic and the characters are likeable. I will get all the Dick Francis books I can that are available on audio.

Fast moving book but easy to follow. Loved this book from start to finish. As all Dick Francis books there is a loose connection with the racing world and great ties from the story starting and finishing in England
