From champion jockey A.P. McCoy comes a tense and utterly gripping racing thriller.
Duncan Claymore could have it all. He's one of the country's up and coming young jockeys and this season his sights are set on getting right to the top, but his demons threaten to overwhelm him.
Duncan was taught everything he knows by his father, Charlie, a former trainer whose career and reputation were destroyed when a series of bitter rivalries got out of hand. It ruined him and Charlie hasn't been able to set foot on a racecourse since.
Now, with his father's health rapidly declining, Duncan is desperate to beat the best and at the same time take down the men responsible for Charlie's ruin. But can he do both or must he choose between his family and his future?
Born in County Antrim in 1974, A. P. McCoy rode his first winner in 1992. In 1996, he was crowned champion jockey for the first time, and he has held the title ever since. He received an OBE in 2010, a year after riding his 3,000th winner, and he was the first jockey to be named BBC Sports Personality of the Year. He lives with his wife, Chanelle, and children, Eve and Archie, in Berkshire. Follow on Twitter at https://twitter.com/AP McCoy
