Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1993

Dick Francis presents a likeable architect-hero embroiled in a family feud over the ownership of a racecourse. Francis's finely drawn characters make an excellent cast for Simon Jones. He uses lightly characterized voices for each Stratton family member--each more difficult, stubborn or pig-headed than the next. The listener gets most of the character development from these voices as the story is cut to essential plot lines. Many of the observations and digressions that delight Francis's print fans are missing. If you've read the book, the audio can extend your association with the characters, if not, it may send you off to enjoy the text. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 94]
