9781742018249: The Great Melbourne Cup Mystery

Melbourne during the Depression. A seedy, corrupt city. Someone has struck at the heart of Australia's soul: they have killed the horse that would have won the Melbourne Cup. For what motive? Profit, blackmail, a betting scam? Only Tom Pink, the rider of the murdered horse, can find out. Tom, born into the underworld he now tries to defeat, exposes graft and blackmail that reaches to the upper echelons of Melbourne society. His life and the lives of those he holds close will never be the same again.

About the Author:

Peter is a voiceover artist and actor with over thirty years of stage, television, and film credits, in Australia and in Europe. He has toured Australia with a variety of stage shows and appeared on TV in Something in the Air, Ponderosa, and Last Man Standing. Film appearances include Pride (shot in Japan), Siam Sunset, The Wog Boy, Razor Eaters, and Personality Plus. For Bolinda Audio he has also narrated Arthur Upfield’s Venom House, Winds of Evil, and Mr Jelly’s Business.

Stig Wemyss is an actor, writer and the voice behind millions of children’s audio books. Well, not millions. Thousands … Alright, more like hundreds … He has a huge fan club. Bolinda Audio is constantly receiving letters from kids saying things like ‘Stig Rocks’ and ‘I love Stig’ and ‘Stig Wemyss is the best narrator in the world’. Of course we don’t show Stig all these letters, as he already thinks he’s the best narrator in the universe! Now that he is also the author of an exciting in-car audio entertainment series, The Tripp Diaries, he thinks he’s the best narrator and the best author in the universe. We think he is too, but let’s just keep that to ourselves!

From AudioFile:

Set in Melbourne, Australia, during the Depression, this lively mystery was originally written as a serial. An expert narration by Stig Wemyss lifts the story of race horse poisonings and true love to another level. Two young men in love with the same swell girl compete for her by racing in the Melbourne Cup--the most prestigious horse race in Australia. Listening to this production is like returning to the days of radio drama. There are cliff-hangers and multiple adventures, and hero Tom Pink's ride in the Melbourne Cup is not-to-be-forgotten audio theatre. Reading this book in print could not possibly be as exciting as this outstanding work of oral acrobatics. B.H.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
