A vicious Chinese Triad gang has lost thousands on a racing tip from Mattie Stuart and they want their money back. Mattie, an ex-jockey turned struggling trainer, needs to give them a certain winner. Or risk the consequences.
In despair, Mattie turns to old friend Eddie Malloy for help. Jockey Eddie has earned an unwanted reputation for helping those who fall prey to racing's criminal fraternity. But his attempt to bail out Mattie lands them both in much deeper trouble.
A high-tech fraudster is conspiring to bring down the bookmaking industry and Eddie finds himself trapped between this ingenious criminal and the savage Triads. But while Eddie is seeking a way out, someone else is looking for him. To reveal a secret that will have a devastating impact ...
Flat-out irresistible narrative pull, intriguing twist and high suspense, combined with an insider's knowledge of the fast-paced world of horse-racing and betting, make The Third Degree an unputdownable thriller from former champion jockey Richard Pitman.
