Surprisingly, for a Dick Francis novel, horses feature here only peripherally. Max Moreton is a superstar chef whose life gets complicated when more than 200 people get sick after eating a dinner he catered at a racetrack. The next day, while he's serving lunch at another race, the glass-fronted box of the grandstand explodes. Max turns sleuth to save his reputation and his restaurant. Martin Jarvis perfectly depicts Max--young, determined, and newly in love. Jarvis's flexibility is remarkable. He creates different voices and accents for supporting characters ranging from Max's girlfriend, Caroline, to an elderly neighbor, a Wisconsin concierge, and a Russian importer.
