Was it really necessary to find out what makes one horse run faster than another? At last a novel of power and insight into the highest echelon of flat racing where hard work underlies seemingly effortless speed and glamour covers passion and avarice; where the top prizes cost all but the richest men in the world everything they own to enter. The mildest man stung with a compulsion becomes a destroyer of lives, an invoker of threats, Will his wife leave him? Will the most dangerous woman in racing carry out her threat to stay? Horseracing has been called a great game. A storm of horses cross the dreams of its players and their dreams keep them awake. 'A Storm of Horses' is about racing and much beside, but mostly it is about the impulsion to win that drives humankind forward into collision and achievement.
