Another Dick Francis Classic. Great with a fast moving engaging plot, a page turner,a great companion for anyone.
I enjoyed this audio very much, set in what could have been the 70's in proper old English. The computer jargon and terms are very dated. I did notice the quality and pitch of the audio change from one chapter to another. If you can put up with that. It's worth a listen.
Another cracking story from Dick Francis. This one split into two related tales centring on a computer betting system. The description of the computer program dates this one a little, but it's still absolutely first rate. Recommended.

Fast paced, gripping crime novel. Brilliantly read by Tony Briton. Excellent audio version. Highly recommended
The audio quality wasn't great, it changes pitch a lot particularly in the early chapters - must have been transferred from audio tape, which is apt considering the story.
The story itself was interesting, well put together, and classic Dick Francis. Amazing how computers have moved on though, it all sounds rather dated today!
I normally enjoy Tony Britton's narration but I found the American accent of the father a bit odd - adults moving overseas don't really pick up that much of an accent, but I guess he had to differentiate between the father and the son in the second half.
