Golden Voice narrator Martin Jarvis performs this mystery with gusto. Private investigator Sid Halley sets out to uncover the truth behind the death of his friend and finds himself drawn into a conspiracy that could bring down the world of horse racing. Jarvis, who has narrated other Francis audiobooks, brings the characters alive through his obvious familiarity with the characters. His understanding of their personalities and his successful use of accents, ranging from British Received speech to Cockney, helps listeners keep track of the wide cast. Jarvis's spot-on pacing keeps the plot moving forward through the various twists and turns. The result is a fast-moving and thoroughly enjoyable listen.
