A Good Suspenseful Mystery....

I enjoyed this story... and Simon Prebble's narration. The story had enough mystery and suspense to hold my attention throughout. Prebble is the voice of Francis' novels, the voice that brings the story to life. Other Dick Francis novels that I like better are "Break In" and "Bolt"... as I well know, some stories are better than others. Recommend.....

I hated to have this one end, so enjoying the Dick Francis books, especially the ones narrated by Simon Prebble, he is amazing.

I love Dick Francis he was an awesome author and this book is an example of it. He brings his characters to life, Freddie, Nina, and all the others are bursting with energy,

Simon Prebble is one of the best narrators and really adds to the story, making each character unique.

Another Francis Masterpiece

Dick Francis is hands down the best mystery writer. This book offers intriguing characters and a well developed plot. Then again, all of his books do. Simon Prebble brings it all together with his engrossing style.

Francis never disappoints!

Great narration for an excellent story. Where the modern trend is to fill the pages with graphic sex scenes, horrific violence, and the worst of crude
language, Dick Francis instead entertains with suspense and a rational storyline.

Dick Francis at his best

Although his computer descriptions make the book anachronistic, his plot and character development are excellent. A very talented narrator makes this well worth listening.
