When jockey Martin Stukely dies after a fall at Cheltenham, he accidentally embroils his friend Gerard Logan in a perilous search for a stolen videotape. Logan is a glassblower on the verge of widespread acclaim. Long accustomed to the frightful dangers inherent in molten glass and in maintaining a glassmaking furnace at never less than 1800 degrees Fahrenheit, Logan is suddenly faced with terrifying threats to his business, his courage, and his life.

Believing that the missing video holds the key to a priceless treasure, and wrongly convinced that Logan knows where to find it, criminal forces set out to press him for information he doesn't have. To survive, he realizes that he himself must sort out the truth. The final race to the tape throws more hazards in Logan's way than his dead jockey friend could ever have imagined.

Glass shatters. Logan doesn't…but it's a close-run thing.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Paddy | 2/19/2014

    " I appreciate the horse detective formula Francis has so successfully employed all his career, but this is a feeble example. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhian | 2/19/2014

    " A re-read of a book first read years ago. Fairly standard Dick Francis, but not one of his best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carmen | 2/12/2014

    " I had picked up a DVD collection for a week vacation inspired by the author, Dick Francis. So when I saw a book by this same author, I had to read it. Unfortunately I was dissapointed. Maybe I just couldn't get into it. I didn't feel that the plot was developed well, just a bunch of events written to sound violent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginny | 2/9/2014

    " Very readable, enjoyable Dick Francis. Not particularly memorable, but a good read nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louise | 1/17/2014

    " Although this was good, I think it was the beginning of a slide down in quality on Francis' books. Keep in mind, I've loved his books for 30 years, so this is hard to say. They're still good yarns, though, with characters you can like, but I found this less enthralling than usual. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 YiShun | 1/17/2014

    " Standard Dick Francis. Fascinating, attractive protagonist; horse-racing; great pacing; good denoument; scary villians. Yum. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela | 1/5/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky Schulman | 3/4/2013

    " The mystery was interesting, but the book just kept me bogged down the entire time I forced myself to finish reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie Twitchell | 8/11/2012

    " Great read. I like how Dick Francis uses a glass artist to spin his mystery. "

    " 3 1/2 out of 4 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 12/15/2010

    " I don't think I've read any Dick Francis book that I really didn't like, although I have liked some better than others. This is a good one, although the very end is not quite as good as some others. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lorraine | 5/30/2010

    " About a man who makes beautiful objects of glass. "

    " I have read every Dick Francis book and own at least half of them... some are better than others, but all are good "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ariel | 9/23/2009

    " I probably would have liked this book more if I was fascinated by horse racing/ glass blowing/ britain. If you like any of these things, you might enjoy this more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JoAnn Ainsworth | 8/17/2009

    " Interesting story from beginning to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 7/19/2009

    " I loved this book...glass blowing has always been fascinating to me but hearing the details was very interesting. As ALWAYS the mystery was well written with clues that were not obvious but there! His books are page turners! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kirsty Darbyshire | 5/25/2009

    " Interesting to have more about glass blowing than horse racing in this book but still it didn't really set my imagination alight. Back to back with Reginald Hill makes me realise how weak Francis's writing is. I was looking for something unchallenging to read though so I can't really complain! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeff | 4/25/2009

    " I think he wrote this one after his wife passed away. I think she helped him a great deal with character development and that is what I read his books for. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy | 4/18/2009

    " One of his best, but I like all his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peregrina651 | 4/1/2009

    " There is very little of the Dick Francis opus that I do not enjoy. Re-reading his titles never pales. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Johnvano | 2/2/2009

    " Glassblower uncovers videotape mystery. "
