In this third Dick Francis classic from The Audio Partners, physicist Jonathan Derry is given some musical tapes by a friend. But the tapes are really an elaborate computerized horse betting system that can make the owner a rich man, or a dead one if the wrong people know he has possession of these tapes. Unfortunately, they find out. Thriller master Dick Francis weaves together a wicked villain, non-stop action, and an explosive showdown in a superb audiobook that races to the finish line.

    " New twist-two views of the same tales??? I loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 2/19/2014

    " Very nice story starting with one brother and ending with another. Funny to read about computers "back in the day" as they were trying to develop betting systems. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy | 2/3/2014

    " A book which has dated quite badly. It talks about computers which have, of course developed so much since the story was originally written. However, like most of Dick Francis' books, this is an enjoyable read with a fast pace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 1/17/2014

    " First of his book I read and I really liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stan | 1/8/2014

    " Reading Dick Francis is as comforting and familiar as eating hot chicken soup when you are sick. This one is interesting in that it tells the story from two perspectives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg Davies | 1/7/2014

    " Good, a very engaging story. I think I like how Mr Fracis's mind works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marge | 1/1/2014

    " This 2-part story about a computerized horse-betting system and its effects is a great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ange | 11/26/2013

    " This book was kinda fun. It is divided in half. The first part is about the older brother and the second half...yup the younger brother. The length of time between the halves is 14 years. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine Woodman | 11/14/2013

    " I have read every single one of these horse related (mostly from the viewopoint of a jockey, but not always)--they are competent. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gerald Curtis | 11/11/2012

    " This was a typical Dick Francis story, divided into part A and part B. However, I did not find it as compelling as most of his books. But it was okay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Data | 4/15/2012

    " A visit to the past. Murder over floppy disks (or cassettes, in this case). Dated, but fun if you're mystery fan, even if you're a programmer who loves horses. All the details are right. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Craig | 3/18/2012

    " Re-read. Listened this time (BBC). Pretty poor production of the audio version, and really not a very good book either. Actually not so much bad, as very outdated, as the plot revolves around old technology - computer *tapes*!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate Millin | 12/28/2011

    " The Derry brothers have to deal with a bully boy with a gun twice before and after a 10 year jail sentence "
