Set in Melbourne, Australia, during the Depression, this lively mystery was originally written as a serial. An expert narration by Stig Wemyss lifts the story of race horse poisonings and true love to another level. Two young men in love with the same swell girl compete for her by racing in the Melbourne Cup—the most prestigious horse race in Australia. Listening to this production is like returning to the days of radio drama. There are cliff-hangers and multiple adventures, and hero Tom Pink's ride in the Melbourne Cup is not-to-be-forgotten audio theatre. Reading this book in print could not possibly be as exciting as this outstanding work of oral acrobatics. B.H.B.
