"Sid Halley, retired jockey turned detective, accuses one of his best friends of a horrible crime. Then he's forced to prove his charges. Simon Prebble is perfect for this story. His masterful use of vocal tone and variety creates unforced characterizations and makes the complex plot and subplots easy-to-follow. Prebble becomes one with Halley, and listeners feel the full impact of each of his successes and failures. T.J.M. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
