Synopsis

'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 GBP30,000. 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.

Roger Longrigg was born into a military family in 1939. He joined an advertising agency in 1955 and his first novel, A HIGH PITCHED BUZZ, was based on his experiences there. He subsequently went on to write 55 novels under 8 different noms de plums, revelling in the challenge and diversity each individual identity afforded him. Extraordinarily, he achieved success within every category he turned his pen to. He was married to writer Jane Chichester and had three daughters. He died in 2000.
