FRONT RUNNER A Dick Francis Novel

by | Read by Martin Jarvis

Mystery & Suspense • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Amid the British horse-racing world, Jeff Hinkley, an undercover investigator, finds himself the target of assassins following a discussion with a top jockey about race fixing. Seasoned actor and narrator Martin Jarvis reads with gusto, displaying both his experience and long association with the series, as well as his talent for accents and characterization. Jarvis makes this an easy listening adventure, reflecting the suspense in the plot with excellent timing and creating a wide range of distinct characters that span the whole of the horse-racing scene and the world beyond. Horse-racing fans will naturally be drawn to this, but it also offers enough mystery and suspense to appeal to a wider audience. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2015]
