Publisher's Summary

The night before the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket sees the great and the good of the horse-racing community gathered for a prestigious black-tie Gala dinner. It is a fitting testament to the glamour of the occasion that top chef Max Moreton is cooking the evening's meal.
Founder of the racing town's favourite Michelin-starred restaurant, the Hay Net, Max is something of a celebrity in Newmarket circles. However, spending the night retching in the throes of agony is the last thing Max expects. But much worse is to come ... his food is suspected of putting twenty-four of the dinner guests in hospital. Max's pride and professionalism tells him all is not as it seems.
Within hours, Max's restaurant is forcibly closed, his reputation teeters on the brink of ruin, and a court case looms. But the day is far from over, and soon Max Moreton finds himself desperately fighting for more than just his livelihood ...

Sadly the story is fairly dull from halfway through onwards and the reader sounds too old for the role - very sorry about this as I've loved his reading of previous Dick Francis books.
Wouldn't recommend it..
