Timmy Murphy's story is not just about a young man who pursued his dream and fulfilled it. This is a story about anticipation, frustration, alcoholism, despair, realisation, reconciliation and, ultimately, redemption. It looked all over for Murphy when the cell door closed behind him at Wormwood Scrubs on 23 July 2002. All blown away in one moment of alcohol-induced madness. His account of his time inside is frighteningly stark. He tells of starting all over again with his reputation in tatters and nothing but his extraordinary talent intact. And he tells of the remarkable chain of events that led to him landing one of the top jobs in National Hunt racing. In "Riding with the Devil", Murphy relays his tale with the rare frankness of one who knows what it is like to stare into the abyss and return.
