The prime asset of this production is Gordon Griffin's performance. He is quite measured and a bit stuffy in a uniquely British way. Yet he holds one's attention more commandingly than many flashier narrators in spite of the lackluster and even stuffier prose in this novel of the horsey set among the rural upper class. Our hero, heir to a title, rides with distinction when he's not overseeing the estate of his difficult father. Thievery and thuggary cross his path and propel him into detection and danger. This is diversion for those with undemanding and patrician taste. Y.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
