A rather dated tale but a typical Dick Francis, so engrossing enough. However, having listened to the excellent narration of many of his books by Tony Britton, this was spoilt by Ian Ogilvy's narration,which I found very poor. A pity.

Dated, but good story spoilt by poor narration
Good storyline, although in my opinion, not one of Dick Francis's best novels and the text is somewhat dated. However, the big disappointment was the fast and extremely poor narration by Ian Ogilvy.

Dull dull and yet more dull
Ian Ogilvy gives a one-dimensional and very dull reading of this rather trite and predictable story which will only really appeal to someone who's hooked on one- and two-engine planes. Yet another worthy but misunderstood hero who keeps coming to the rescue but rarely gets the credit. Where are all the interesting and entertaining characters who inhabited Francis' earlier novels? Not here, that's for sure. Not recommended.
