Wild Horses, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Movie director Thomas Lyon came to Newmarket to rake the ashes of an old Jockey Club scandal for a new Hollywood film.

Too late, he found himself listening to a blacksmith's dying confession.

Found himself watching as the past came violently back to life.

Capturing the shockwaves over one woman's macabre death nearly thirty years before is drama.

But a frenzied knife attack on the set of Unstable Times is definitely attempted murder.

Who stood to gain from the threats? Between truth and shadowy fiction, Thomas Lyon already knew too much.

Following the real story could mean the difference between life and death.

Movie director Thomas Lyon comes to Newmarket to shoot a film about a long-ago scandal, and finds the past still dangerous. Interesting descriptions of a film director's work, good suspense.
