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.
