A.P. MCCOY Untitled

Following on from Taking the Fall, this is the thrilling second novel from champion jockey, A.P. McCoy. Following the death of Duke Cadogan, talented young rider Duncan Claymore inherits his large estate. Duncan has put his demons behind him and is well on his way to achieving his dream of becoming Champion Jockey. However, Cadogan’s wealth proves to be illusory, with a manor house and grounds mortgaged to the hilt, and a list of creditors who include the formidable George Pleasance. And Duncan’s rival on the field, Sandy Sanderson, looks set to shatter his ambitions. Down on his luck, out of favour and broke, Duncan has to try to engineer a return to good fortune, restore his reputation and bring down his father’s enemy of old, William Osborne. AP McCoy is the greatest and most successful jumpjockey of all time. He recently became the first National Hunt jockey to ride 4,000 career winners. He received an OBE in 2010, and was the first jockey to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award.
