Steven Neil’s horseracing themed novel The Merest Loss is historical fiction with a twist. It’s pacy and exciting with captivating characters and a distinctive narrative voice. The worlds of horse racing, hunting and government provide the scope for rural settings to contrast with the city scenes of London and Paris and for racing skulduggery to vie with political chicanery.
Throughout December, all receipts from sales will go to Racing Welfare. On sale including at Amazon, ebay and through bookshops (notably the National Horseracing Museum).
