Publisher's Summary

Nominated for the Man Booker Prize, Derby Day is an exquisite tale of romance and rivalry, gambling and greed, from one of England’s finest writers.

As the shadows lengthen over the June grass, all of England is heading for Epsom Downs - highlife and lowlife, society beauties and Whitechapel street girls, bookmakers and Gypsies, hawkers and thieves. Hopes are high, nerves are taut, hats are tossed in the air - this is Derby Day. For months people have been waiting and plotting for this day. Everyone's eyes are on champion horse Tiberius, on whose performance half a dozen destinies depend.

In this rich and exuberant novel, rife with the idioms of Victorian England, the mysteries pile high, propelling us toward the day of the great race, and we wait with bated breath as the story gallops to a finish that no one expects.

Shades of Vanity Fair

Smart, funny, and literary mystery. It's the book I wish I would have thought of.
