Philip Nore is a jockey whose life is turned upside down by secrets, deadly secrets left by a racetrack photographer who dies in a car crash and family secrets known only to a much-hated grandmother. Dick Francis is always a good read, and the narrator, Tony Britton, heightens the enjoyment tremendously. He has a warm, richly layered voice that is relaxing and never hits a wrong note. From the harsh, deriding voice of Philip's grandmother, to the light, waffling voice of Jeremy Folk, a young solicitor, Britton gets everything right, giving each character a distinct and consistent voice. Definitely a value-added listening experience. P.G. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
