Description

On the first day of Royal Ascot, the crowd rejoices in a string of winning favorites. Ned Talbot has worked all his life as a bookmaker – taking over the family business from his grandfather – so he knows not to expect any sympathy from the punters as they count their winnings, and him his losses. He’s seen the ups and downs before – but, as the big gambling conglomerates muscle in on small concerns like his, Ned wonders if it’s worth it any more.

When a grey-haired man steps forward from the crowd, claiming to be his father, Ned’s life is thrown into further turmoil. He’d been told since he was a baby that his parents had died in a car crash.

Barely an hour later, his newly found father is stabbed by an unknown assailant in the Ascot car park. Blood oozing from his abdomen, his father warns Ned to “be very careful.” But of whom? Of what? Ned finds himself in a race to solve his father’s riddle, a race where coming in second could cost him more than even money, it could cost him his life ...

One of the cleaner ones.

This is pretty clean sex wise. It doesn't go into as much detail as some of the other ones. There is still some swearing in it though. At lease 3 f words.

Reassuringly 'decent' characters

Desite the odd murder and person of evil intent, the Dick Francis books are a consistently and reassuringly the England of a few decades ago: the dramas of the racecourse (never attended one in my life and never likely to, so this is a new world) and traditions of basic decency being upheld.

This book held my interest throughout, the characters are alive and entertaining and it culminated in an unrushed and satisfying conclusion.

And speaking of old boys, I always find the voice of Tony Britton, excellent reader that he is, much older than the late thirty something that is required in the Francis books. Also, his women's voices leave a lot to be desired. But for all that, his moderate and thoughtful tone underscores the world and its values that are being evoked.

Dreadful start, Great finish

Would you consider the audio edition of Even Money to be better than the print version?

I haven't read it.

Would you recommend Even Money to your friends? Why or why not?

Very depressing first 3 hours. I also didn't relate to him as he makes bad decisions. I love Dick Francis so I assumed it would get better. The last hour is great and exciting and very positive.
It become a good story, but I wouldn't recommend it as it took too long to get into.
