This is the prequel to the very successful book “Chequered Justice”. “Dark Horse” is candid, honest and thoroughly engaging account of the early life of John Bartlett and the events that lead to the dramatic sequence of events that befell him. There is an anger that slips through the pages of Chequered Justice but in Dark Horse we see a more reflective account, touched with moments of fine humour. It provides a fascinating insight into the world of dyslexia and motor racing. It’s a very easy read and thoroughly recommended.
