Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tony Britton

Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1996

Reclusive painter Alexander Kinloch comes out of the Scottish Highlands to assist his family in London. He's drawn into the world of horse racing and gets involved hiding a jeweled trophy cup and other treasures, including Bonnie Prince Charlie's ceremonial sword, "the hilt." Dick Francis has crafted another splendid mystery filled with lively and intriguing characters. Master narrator Tony Britton, a veteran of many audiobooks by Francis, does full justice to the array of gentry, horse trainers, accountants and attorneys. Women play a stronger role than they do in many of Francis's novels, and Britton catches their voices with flair. Making each character distinct, Britton brings listeners into the midst of the intrigue. R.F.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 97]
