Martin Tucker Irish Breeder & Trainer--------------- From the first few pages, it is clear that Kiaran is a natural. Gripping, very enjoyable and a terrific debut. TV Presenter and racecourse commentator Mike Cattermole---------------------- Kiaran's colourful characters come to life and by the end of the book I felt I knew them all intimately. The story contains great factual details for the vice greyhound enthusiast but packs eugh content for even the most ardent true crime fan, the rollercoaster plot and clever twists make it the most 'unputdownable' book I've read in a very long time - in fact it will have you on the 'Edge' of your seat - can't wait for the sequel!
