Book Description

A thrilling sequel to the popular and well-received The Hyperion Legacy. Assistant trainer and jump jockey Danny Rawlings is on the brink of financial ruin after taking a punt on buying his pride and joy Silver Belle, a tiny mare who's underachieved in the hands of struggling trainer and boss Roger Crane. After Danny is left badly beaten and shaken by a stranger outside his apartment, he learns that, one by one, jockeys that rode in a low-key race at Kempton years back are being murdered. And his name is next on the list. In the most important race of his life, with everything at stake, Danny sets about unearthing the shocking secret behind the deaths: The Rule of Lazari. A chain of mysterious events builds to a breathtaking climax at the Cheltenham Festival, where Danny gives his all to right the wrongs of the past, clear his financial woes and help set up a brighter future with wife Sara.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Ok read 29 Sept. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    An interesting story with a unique plot. A goodish read and it made me want to go back to it to find out what happened next. The downside though was that it was full of grammatical errors and strange sentence construction. A few misspellings too, which made it very annoying.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Rollercoaster plot. 23 Mar. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I enjoyed this rollercoaster plot about Danny Rawlings a jockey caught up in betting scam . The rule of Lazarus is a fool proof betting system. Danny uncovers this and becomes involved in a gripping adventure to find out how it relates to the death of two other jockeys. Matters cone to a head when it turns out that he might be next. A thrilling read.

    4.0 out of 5 stars good story 31 Mar. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I enjoyed this book. I thought the author kept the pace going and even if the plot is occasionally a little implausible, the tale rattles along and will appeal to fans of Dick Francis and Richard Pitman! You can also tell that the author knows about betting!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another good horse racing book 1 May 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Great to discover more thrillers involving horse racing. Now that Jenny Pitman doesnt seem to write any more and Felix Francis only produces one a year, I can now read these. Perhaps not quite enough "horsey-ness" in it, but still a good read.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Outclassed by even the worst Dick Francis 21 Mar. 2010
    I read his previous book, which was not too bad. However this book is poorly plotted, very badly written and even manages to make the worst Dick Francis look like real literature.
    I advise readers to stick to Francis, even Junior, Francome, Richard Pitman, Michael Maguire and Mark Daniels, rather than wasting money on this one.
