Counter Coup

Countercoup by David Lipsey is a racing thriller that travels as fast as the horses. When Robber Earl falls at the last fence at Bangor-on-Dee everybody suspects foul play and blames the jockey, Brendon Donoughue. Everybody, that is, except Brendon himself. He knows that he did nothing wrong – or even unusual. Brendon finds surprising allies in a Labour Lord (which David Lipsey himself is) and his daughter. The Champion jockey has only a few days to clear his name and save his career. Was the horse doped or was he? The sleazy truth is tracked across racecourses from the Riviera to the Welsh Marches.

 "...he knows his onions when it comes to racing and betting.…As you would expect, racecourse scenes are accurate and authentic....Lipsey also displays a wry sense of humour."

"A 'Dick Francis' style romp. If you are looking for an easy, enjoyable read over the holiday period, Counter Coup will not let you down."
