Description

A trainee jockey has been kicked to death by an aggressive stallion at the local stables. Deemed an accidental death, the case is closed. But when the jockey's brother returns from active service, he sparks an armed siege, demanding the investigation be re-opened and the truth uncovered.

Still recovering from the physical and mental scars of his last case, Detective Inspector Nick Dixon is dragged deep into a murky world of betting scams and murder, where people will do anything to keep their secrets. Even if that means silencing a DI who keeps asking the wrong questions about the wrong dead jockey...

Kickback is the third novel in the highly acclaimed DI Nick Dixon Crime Series.

Racing, Roadies & Ruin Abound!

DI Dixon does it again. With merely a moments notice since his last case, and still not fully recovered from the wounds it inflicted Detective Inspector Dixon is onto a horse mauling that may not be what it seems.

Accompanied by a skeleton crew, he enters the world of racing to find out what's transpired and who's responsible.

Quick and potent like the two before, this thriller plays out interestingly. Unlike the others, there are a few too many characters and a slight implausibility for this reader. Still a worthy listen as Napoleon gives us his oratory best!

Murder at the race track

Kickback starts where Head in the Sand ends, with detective Nick Dixon recovering from his knife wound. A trainee jockey has apparently been kicked to death in his stables at the race track by an aggressive horse. The jockey's brother believes he was actually murdered and takes strong steeps to assure that the police are forced to investigate it as such. Thus begins a story of murder, blackmail, and other criminal activities. DI Nick Dixon and his police partner/girlfriend Jane ultimately resolve the case but not before more murder.

This is Book 3 of the five novel Nick Dixon police procedural series. The setting is in the midlands of England.

Slow Moving Racetrack Murder

This was an average murder mystery. It started out fine but slowed as it developed. The reader was excellent with a level of suspense as he spoke. The plot was fine but there was not an exciting movement of action. too much traveling the racetrack and environment. I was hoping for some quicker action scenes as there are many books in the series.

Highly enjoyable but narrative voice needs help

I continue to enjoy this series very much and admire the author's plot and character development of the "hero" . I look forward to listening to the next book as well. However in all 3 books so far the main female character has a soft single tone subdued voice on each every response, every bit of dialogue, even when the listener is expecting moments of obvious emotional and climactic responses. Given her important role in the story with our favorite DI who we are rooting for, it is somewhat of a let-down, somewhat frustrating to hear the constant unvarying monotone voice.

Audible books / audio books can take unknown or little known authors works over the top and provide it exposure to tens of thousands of listeners outside the authors country of publication. I really like Mr Boyd's works and this publisher but fixing this narration issue seems necessary to attain the next level of international readership (listenership).

Great book and awesome narration..

I just adore Dixon. His and Jane’s relationship is without passion but they do say some cute things to each other. And they're always so professional. Even though they are sleeping together, and everyone knows it, it's funny how every time Dixon asks her to do something she always ends her answer with "sir."

This time they’re looking for the murderer of a would-be jockey. And, good grief, it sure was a surprise ending. And, again, how they go about finding the proof is amazing.

I like the team, too: Jane, Louise, Dave, Mark and DCI Lewis. They all share the misery of hunting for clues that lead somewhere, or lead nowhere.

There’s swearing and the F-bomb is used 18 times.

As to the narrator: I think I’m enjoying this series so much is because of Napoleon Ryan. His male and female voices are so fantastic.

Really unfortunate

Unfortunately, I bought three of these books at one time without listening to a sample. The narration is so campy that I couldn't enjoy the story or get into the characters - especially the female voice used - breathless & without tone or emotion. It really is unfortunate.

Really poor narration

The narration was so bad that I could not finish the story. His rendition of a female voice was fake, sounded like a drag queen (which did not fit the situation. Storyline was poor and story was weak in general. From an avid audible user....don't waste your time.
