"A bit of everything"
An enjoyable book and relatively rare for Dick Francis in that the main character was and had not been a jockey. There's a bit of romance, some action, detective work and an assortment of experts, thugs, criminals and wealthy racing types. The glass blowing stuff is interesting and informative. If you can follow up the book by a visit to John Ditchfield at Glasform in Singleton Lancashire where much of the inspiration and instruction came from.
Well narrated by Tony Britton who has done many if not all of Dick's books.
"Shattered but not broken!"
It flowed from start to finish with precise narration rising and falling with the required emphasis.
"Not the best but ok"
Enjoyed this to a certain degree.. Some very drawn out parts and the story got a bit silly from time to time but worth a listen,.
"One of my favourites"
Have loved this book from the first time I read it. Tony Britton delivers the perfect performance
"I love the narrator"
The teamwork of Dick Francis and Tony Britton is absolutely spellbinding. Never a dull story
Interesting, educational and exciting and well read by Tony Briitan. Never knew much about glass blowing before
"Great reading of a good book"
Yes, I love Dick Francis books and in addition it is read really well.
"Excellent as ever"
Always a good novel from Dick or/and Felix Francis. What makes it all the more exciting for me is the excellent reading voices of Tony Britton and Martin Jarvis. Wish they read more novels by other authors for you. I never tire of listening to the "Francis" novels.
