B.J. Farrell is a London property tycoon and gangster; hardly the sort of man to be involved in a hunt for sunken treasure. But if that's not why he's in Jersey, then what has he come for? And how can Bergerac stop him from getting it... ?
In this his 50th year Lester Keith Piggott has finally decided to hang up his racing saddle for the last time. It was 37 years ago, at the tender age of 12, that racing's boy prodigy first rode into a winner's enclosure. Now his name ranks alongside those great jockeys of the turf: Fred Archer , Steve Donaghue and Sir Gordon Richards.
Piggott's successes are legendary; he has been champion jockey 11 times, and won 29 classic races, including nine victories in the Derby. There is, of course, another side to Piggott - the private face, the family man.
What does a jet-setting jockey do when the English flat-racing season ends?
