5.0 out of 5 stars. The art of fixing Horse races The closest I came to horse racing is driving from time to time near Belmont racetrack. This was fundamentally corrected by reading The Silver Horse.
Mr. Copland informs us about nicking the Achilles tendon, doping, bribing and intimidation of jockeys and trainers.
The story goes further with murder and arson. All this happens in the race of the century, which brings Damon Runyon style characters to the story.
The book ends with a very high stakes gambling and finally, our hero Sherlock Holmes solving the crime.
An interesting peek into horse racing, high stakes betting and the art of handicapping.
Mr. Copland keeps the authenticity of Conan Doyle’s ambiance and style.
A riveting page turner.
I will be looking for more of Mr. Copland’s books.
