The Hyperion Legacy
Ex-jockey and betting guru Danny Rawlings thinks he's met his darkest hour. Accused of murdering his friend, stable lad Deano, and now a wanted man on both sides of the law. A pulsating and innovative plot sees Danny hunted down and forced to witness the cold-blooded execution of a loved one. Fired on by that harrowing experience he goes all out to exact his revenge and get justice. Packed with stunning race scenes at Britain's premier racetracks, the tension never lets up right down to the wire as Danny goes after the real killers to reveal the shocking truth behind an inherited secret. Against all odds, Danny makes a return to the saddle in the Epsom Derby, not just to fulfil a lifelong dream but to expose the evil forces at work and save the 'Sport of Kings' from ruin.
