A missing person. A macabre find. A murderer in their midst.

Storm Rider is another suspenseful thriller set in the racing world from bestselling author John Francome. The perfect read for fans of Felix Francis’ Pulse and Triple Crown.

‘Look out, Dick Francis, here’s Francome riding another winner’ – Peterborough Evening Telegraph

In life, horse-fancier and antiques dealer Glyn Cole caused a heap of trouble – for his girlfriends, their jealous partners and his creditors. His two-year absence from the close-knit Berkshire horse community has been something of a relief. Broken bridges have been mended; lives have been rebuilt. And his disappearance has been a miracle for one individual in particular: the person who killed him. But now Glyn is back – in bizarre circumstances. A record-breaking storm has ripped his corpse from its ingenious hiding place. How did he get there and how did he die? Many have benefited from his absence – but who is no longer sleeping so soundly at night? It seems that, even in death, bad boy Glyn is as much trouble as he ever was…
