'Irresistible' ( The New York Times)

Publisher's Summary

Derek Franklin is an injured jockey. The last fence at Cheltenham has left him on crutches. But his brother’s death means even bigger trouble. He inherits a jewellery business, a mistress – and some very shady business associates. Franklin likes to play things straight. But with £1.5 million in diamonds gone missing, he finds honesty can be a deadly virtue. His only hope of survival is to identify his brother’s mysterious enemies.

lousy sound quality, great book and performer

buzz in background that stopped and started with end of each chapter, start of next. Voice/sound of reader changed between different recorded bits. great book though, very much enjoyed it.

I'm probably biased...

I went to sleep listening to an abridged version of this on tape through most of my youth and I couldn't help but compare the readers preformances... and found this one inferior at most points, which erked me, and the recording quality subpar when compared to the listening quality of my other audible titles. that said, it was the better option between the two recodings available and I still love the story hugely, more than enough to overlook these little nusesnse and revel in learning the knew details I'd never gotten on the old abridged tapes.
