About Book

'Brimming with talent. Longrigg is a real discovery.' New Statesman

Surrounded by photographs, Major Desmond Cook exists quietly and alcoholically in his Baker Street flat. His days are spent at race meetings, fuelled by a dream of winning £30,000. As far as he's concerned, it's a modest-enough sum; and one which will allow him to live out his remaining days in comfort.

But one day, an Irishman tips him a rank outsider for the fourth race at Ascot. And when the horse does, indeed, win, Desmond's life is violently transformed. There's a mystery to solve; a mystery that will lead him to a breathtaking climax at Longchamps . . .

First published in 1961, Daughters of Mulberry is dazzlingly written, outrageously funny and propelled by edge-of-your-seat tension.
