After a shattering accident plunges a society soiree into chaos, an unassuming wine merchant is left with the bitter aftertaste of suspicion and fear. While catering an outdoor party for a prominent horse trainer, Tony Beach hears rumors of inferior whisky being sold under premium labels. All of that is forgotten, however, when a runaway horse trailer suddenly ploughs into the guest-filled tent. Later, after the last victim is pulled from the debris, he begins searching for answers to both the fraudulent spirits and the disaster. As Tony follows up leads, he finds himself pulled deeper and deeper into a treacherous world filled with greed, deception, and unspeakable murder.
Incomparable storyteller Dick Francis grabs your attention on page one and keeps you riveted throughout to the smashing finish. With narrator Simon Prebble’s dramatic timing and superb accents, you’ll find Proof a vintage mystery to be savored.

One Of Francis' Best: An Entertaining Story
I like just about all of Dick Francis' stories and have listened to several. I think this is one of his best, if not the best, of his stories. However, I think that you should like British stories and narrators in order to fully enjoy.
This story is well described in the publisher's summary, and it is truly a treacherous story of greed, deception, and murder. Most importantly for me, this story held my attention so well that I couldn't wait to find out who the bad guy(s) were. Dick Francis' suspense stories are unlike stories by authors such as Michael Connelly and John Grisham. These stories are generally, in some way, centered around the horse racing world and were written a long time ago.
Dick Francis' stories are very easy listening and you will know early on whether or not the story has captured your attention. Narrator Simon Prebble always gives an excellent performance.

One of his best!
'One of my most favorite Francis titles - though really, how can I choose?!, there are so many that fit that category ... Banker, Hot Money, For Kicks, Longshot, High Stakes, Rat Race, Blood Sport, Straight, Flying Finish ... heck, I could just list them ALL. And another fine performance by Simon Prebble; his voice fits Mr. Francis' characters so well. I'm in awe at his talent; he's the best Francis narrator. Please, Audible, get ALL his titles (unabridged). Thanks!
