Warned Off

From Champion Jockey at 22 to down-and-out at 27, Eddie Malloy is bitter and desolate, reduced to living in an ancient caravan working for a tyrannical horse dealer. Estranged from his family and the sport he loves, Eddie cannot forget or forgive the racing authorities for believing false allegations of horse doping against him which robbed him of his riding licence.

With another miserable Christmas looming, Eddie’s discovery of murder victim Danny Gordon in the racing capital of Newmarket offers him a perilous path to the resurrection of his career. He must balance that ultimate reward against the risk of becoming a victim of Gordon’s ruthless killers.

Warned Off was first published by Hodder & Stoughton. Here is a flavour of the press reviews from the print edition:

‘It’s a racing certainty that Warned Off will offer a challenge to Dick Francis. It’s packed with authentic dialogue and characters.’ Today

‘A very professional racing thriller … lots of rough stuff, plenty of racing background and action all mixed up with a love interest combine to provide a fast-moving story.’ Publishing News

‘The plot is from the racing stockpot … fast and violent.’ The Times

………………………………………………………………………………………..

Written by ex-top jockey and BBC commentator Richard Pitman and racing journalist Joe McNally, Warned Off is the first in the series of 6 mystery crime thrillers by the duo.

Warned Off sees the debut of Eddie Malloy, who features in 5 of Richard and Joe’s novels. The book has been rewritten and moves along at an even faster pace now.

We hope you enjoy Warned Off which also contains an excerpt from book two in the Eddie Malloy series, Hunted.
