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..

Sounds like an interesting scenario, but witten without any depth of insight into the restaurant business, and far far too slow in getting anywhere. Also Tony Britton is far too old to take on this role of a late-20s energetic chef. Gone are the amusing and entertaining characterisations of earlier Francis readings, and instead we're given a very downbeat exhausted rendering. I managed just over 2 hours of it before returning the title. Not recommended.

What made the experience of listening to Dead Heat the most enjoyable?
The voice of the narrator and nice turns in the story: Allthough a completly new field (cooking instead of riding), it is well researched and this very interesting to get insights of how to run a restaurant.
What does Felix Francis and Tony Britton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Tony Britton has such a gentle and calm voice, he is perfect for bringing Dick Francis'characters to life, which are usually no heroes, but no fools either.
