Description

When his quiet world suddenly falls apart, Doc spirals downward into a mire of gambling and drunkenness, drugs and depression until his best friend, the legendary horse trainer Boone Hawkins tries to get him back on his feet.

Well enough, except Hawkins has a dark side as well as a scheme that may bring down not only his friend, but the racetrack itself.

Never does Doc imagine the deceit, duplicity and larceny that await him on such a grand scale. If not for Mary Long and her son Duncan, the aspiring jockey, Doc might never find his way out of the intricate web in which he finds himself entangled.

Love and Greed Hit Head-On

In John Perrotta’s latest horseracing novel, Half a Chance, love and greed hit head-on, with the outcome never certain.

  3. Victoria Weisfeld

    ****** LOVE BOOKS ABOUT HORSE-RACING AND THIS IS A FUN NOVEL!

    “A quick read, this book is steeped in the action and lore of the thoroughbred race track. Someone’s playing fast and loose with big wads of cash, and can he keep all his financial transactions afloat while he rides out of town with the greenbacks? Lots of fun, strong characters, some redemption, and a fine evocation of horse-racing’s arcane world.”
