    Story

    Renowned novelist and screenwriter Mark Frost turns his eye for golf to an event so famous that it’s grown to the stuff of legend. In 1956, a casual bet between two millionaires eventually pitted two of the greatest golfers of the era—Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan—against top amateurs Harvie Ward and Ken Venturi. Frost recounts this dramatic tale from start to finish, detailing the match that vaulted golf out of the shadows and into the national spotlight.

    Stephen says: "Listened before I went and played"
    "The story of a great golf match"

    What did you love best about The Match?

    This is a wonderful story of a classic match in 1956 between the two leading amateurs and two leading professionals of the game.

    It provides a wealth of historical information about the players, the longtime relationship between amateurs and professionals, the history of Cypress Point and other world-famous golf courses and much much more. Highly recommended!

    Flashman is back! When the memoirs of Sir Harry Flashman, the celebrated Victorian soldier and scoundrel, first came to light 30 years ago, we were introduced to adventures related with verve, dash, and meticulous historical detail. Now come three new episodes in the career of this eminent and disreputable adventurer.

    Michael Burton says: "But I hate Anti-heroes!?"
    "Five stars for sure!"
    Overall

    George MacDonald Fraser's Flashman series is like Ian Fleming's James Bond series, only better. He reminds me in some ways of Kipling in his story telling ability. It is a pleasure listening to the way Fraser can take a simple incident and present it with elegance, suspense and humor. And David Case's reading complements this perfectly.
