Publisher's Summary

At an annual party to celebrate the success of the racing season, everything seemed to be running well to form, including the need for more champagne. Then a runaway horsebox ploughed into the marquee. A witness to the terrible death and destruction, wine merchant Tony Beach knows it is just one of those tragic accidents. But when his expert advice is called into play over sub-standard alcohol in a local night club, connections start to click, and another person dies, horribly.

Another winner for this ex-jockey

I've been reading Dick Francis since book 1, and I've got to say that if you like any of his books, chances are good you'll like the rest.

Even tho his plots always refer to British horse-racing, there's always a different take on it. I think his stories are exciting and his characters very human.

Go for it!

Proof

Tony Britton does a great job narrating this story. Dick Francis is a great writer. As a horse lover and race fan I always enjoy the inside view that Francis provides in his stories. I always learn something from his book and in this one was about the world of wines and whiskey. The pace always moves along and this book held a few nail biting moments of suspense. I wish Audible carried more of the Dick Francis books.

One of the best

As a Dick Francis fan I think this is one of his best. A good mix of thriller, information and the unexpected. And well read too.
