Ben Copperfield, freelance journalist, is catapulted into the lives of the people of Castle Ridge Racing Stables as he investigates several stories: the theft of "Cajun King" just weeks before he is expected to race for the Cheltenham Gold Cup, a gypsy stunt-riding troupe, and a radical activist group committed to the liberation of sports animals. Narrator Jonathan Keeble creates what seems like a full-cast ensemble, with voices for a plethora of Hungarian and British characters. Keeble's ability to maintain unique voices during a rancorous family meeting of six characters that builds up to their exposing a grievous family secret draws the listener deeper into the drama. His skill in moving from incredulity to outrage when a break-in is discovered, without losing the story's pace, is also impressive. K.A.T. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
