Summary

Ex-journalist Dan Starkey is stuck in a grimy Belfast bedsit. His life is a disaster, and his only solace is the pub round the corner. He really, really needs something to get his teeth into. Fellow ex-journalist Mark Corkery provides that something. Corkery, an Internet horseracing gossip, wants him to investigate Geordie McClean, the man behind Irish American Racing.
Simple enough for a man with Dan's experience, surely? But Trouble is Dan's middle name. And trouble is what he finds.

Bateman brought to audio life

Would you listen to The Horse with My Name again? Why?

Generally a great book from Colin, very funny throughout, a little bizarre in sections but all add to the unique style he has. Well read by the narrator, however would have expected somewhat deeper Belfast accent than what seemed like a well versed Cultra accent ;)

Luck of the Irish!

At first I thought I would not like the narration, but it's so well done I was away with the horses, and loved all the twists and turns of the story............

Fun crime caper

Humour mixed with bits of sadness, or at least less funny parts. A crime story revolving around a alcoholic press man, divorced, lost his son, and down on his luck. Some sharp wit, with , in the end, a feel good, and fun after taste.
Like the Irish accent, makes a refreshing change too, might take a bit of time for someone not familiar with the Irish twang
