From the Inside Flap:

"A thoroughbred thriller...A winner."
THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD
Young 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.
Once again, high-speed thrill master Dick Francis weaves a constantly twisting plot, a wicked villain, non-stop action, and an explosive showdown into a superb book that races to the finish line, leaving you breathless for more....

About the Author:

Dick Francis (pictured with his son Felix Francis) was born in South Wales in 1920. He was a young rider of distinction winning awards and trophies at horse shows throughout the United Kingdom. At the outbreak of World War II he joined the Royal Air Force as a pilot, flying fighter and bomber aircraft including the Spitfire and Lancaster.

He became one of the most successful postwar steeplechase jockeys, winning more than 350 races and riding for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. After his retirement from the saddle in 1957, he published an autobiography, The Sport of Queens, before going on to write more than forty acclaimed books, including the New York Times bestsellers Even Money and Silks.

A three-time Edgar Award winner, he also received the prestigious Crime Writers’ Association’s Cartier Diamond Dagger, was named Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, and was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in 2000. He died in February 2010, at age eighty-nine, and remains among the greatest thriller writers of all time.
