- In stock
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?

AP's first novel is a fast-paced tale of revenge...an entertaining and easy read - a good one for the Christmas holidays. -- Amy Mathieson * HORSE & HOUND *
TAKING THE FALL is efficiently written and tightly plotted with some good twists along the way . . . Not everything in this world is attractive, and that includes the aspirations of the innocent, but it is certainly believable. * CRIME CHRONICLES *
The novel shows that behind the magnificent jockey is a man with a vivid imagination - one capable of putting together a pacey and perhaps at times surprisingly explicit read. * BELFAST TELEGRAPH *
