Micky Brennan used to be a winner - a big-time trainer with a yard full of world-class racehorses and a lifestyle to match. But that was before his stint in prison for drunk driving and manslaughter. Now Micky does whatever he can to make ends meet. Which means hawking feed supplements to former colleagues - until an old friend offers him a job as stud manager at Ballysheenan, a small horse farm in rural Ireland. A farm that just happens to own Sansovino, one of the world's most sought-after stallions. But before Micky can make it to the winner's circle again, a few difficulties must be ironed out - such as the extortionists who demand protection money to keep Sansovino in good health. And the freelance gunman on the lam from British authorities in Belfast who arrives in the neighborhood. Is Micky bold enough - and fool enough - to see things through to the end? From the high-stakes world of horse breeding to the bloody permutations of international politics, The Bold Thing takes us for a heart-pounding gallop all the way to the finish line.
