Publisher's Summary

Peter Darwin was hoping for some quiet leave from the Foreign Office. Instead he found himself in the village of his childhood, at the service of a veterinary surgeon whose operating theater was rapidly acquiring an unwanted reputation as an abattoir.
The sudden unexplained death of a string of valuable racehorses from one small area in Gloucestershire was a mystery the police couldn't solve. But Darwin was local. He remembered people and what was at stake. And now he knew enough to get himself killed.

Good story... sound Very poor .

Well read , good story but sound quality very poor. Background noise very distracting.
This book should be re read or withdrawn ! Unfair to charge for this audio book, if it was bought from a shop I would have returned it for a refund!

One of the first audio books I listened to when it came out on cassette. Now I am pleased to be able to listen on Audible.
Tony Britton for me hits the spot as narrator. The story is interesting with a good dash of horse/veterinary information
