Classic Francis

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.

Bad audio quality but a great story

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.
