Narrator a bit off

This was an entertaining Dick Francis tale as usual, but the main character who is supposed to be in his 30s sounds more 50-ish+ and was annoying throughout. The narrator provides an excellent performance, just not for this character. In some scenes the protagonist makes some incredibly dumb choices that don't ring true for the savvy and intuitive lawyer he's portrayed in other parts of the book. I will definitely listen to more Dick Francis, but will be more selective.
