Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Martin Jarvis

Mystery & Suspense • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

There may be no better combination on audio than Dick Francis and Martin Jarvis. Francis, now writing with his son Felix, turns out thrillers set in British racing circles. Geoffrey Mason is a lawyer by trade and an amateur jockey by passion. Hired to defend a champion jockey arrested for murdering another jockey with a pitchfork, Mason finds himself evading vengeful former clients, soaring over steeplechase jumps, and falling in love with a veterinarian. As usual, the smooth and supremely versatile Jarvis inhabits a plethora of diverse characters, ranging from stuffed-shirt lawyers and cranky parents to grinning psychopathic thugs. His timing is also impeccable. Expect to be addicted and listening through the night. A.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2008]
