When it comes to corruption and murder there’s no easy way out…

Jockey Archie Best gets caught up in a web of corruption in John Francome’s exhilarating racing thriller Rough Ride. The perfect read for fans of Lynden Stacey and Felix Francis’ Pulse and Triple Crown.

‘The racing feel is authentic and it’s a pacy, entertaining read’ – Evening Standard

When amateur jockey Archie Best receives a surprise legacy from an old family friend, it proves to have some unwelcome strings attached. The strange bequest points an accusing finger at Clive Drury, an influential and affluent businessman who mixes with cabinet ministers and has his wealthy fingers in every conceivable pie. Helped by his would-be girlfriend, Georgie – and distracted by the rather obvious charms of Drury’s daughter, Amanda – Archie sets out to substantiate the extraordinary claims. But only gradually does he discover the extent of the web of corruption, and the deadly nature of his adversary…
