  Wheel Of Fire 

If any of our readers are struggling for ideas for Christmas (yes, I know it is only November) then don’t panic as I have an excellent suggestion for you…no, honestly I do!

Local author, friend and neighbour Hilary Bonner has a new Detective David Vogel mystery novel out just in time for the festive period.  The book is set in the Blackdown Hills area of Somerset and features some familiar characters from the surrounding area including our own David Pipe (spoiler alert - I don’t think he is the villain)!

“A mysterious fire at a Somerset manor house leads to a complex and intriguing case for Bristol detective David Vogel”

It features many a twist and turn that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final pages.  I know that Carol has read it and highly recommends it and it will be on my Christmas list too…

You can order your copy through Amazon by clicking on the image of the book (above, left)

  Dorothy Page, The Eccentric Queen Of The Sport Of Kings 

Dorothy Paget has fascinated my father for years and he has an extensive collection of original memorabilia of this unique, iconic and eccentric lady owner who had some of the finest racehorses in British racing history including the legendary five time Gold Cup winner and Grand National victor Golden Miller.  When he was asked by author Graham Sharp to contribute towards a book dedicated to her by providing a foreword, MCP was delighted and couldn't wait to see the finished product.  He was not disappointed either, this is as good an account of the great lady as he has read - meticulously researched and difficult to put down.

Be quick to secure your copy of this fascinating book as we only have limited stock.

Martin would be happy to personally inscribe the books if requested - please state when ordering.

£15 (from £20)  + £4 P&P*

  Martin Pipe, The Champion Trainer's Story  

We also have a few copies of "Martin Pipe, The Champion Trainer's Story", my father's autobiography which gives a frank account of the early part of his career and gives an insight into the revolutionary training methods he introduced in this country.  As the book is no longer in publication and quite difficult to get hold of, please note that they are pre-owned but in good condition.

Martin would be pleased to include a personalised inscription - again, please state this when ordering.

£10 + £4 P&P*

*Postage within the United Kingdom - we will happily post overseas, although that will incur an additional charge dependent on postage rates
