I started the Campbell Young series with book 2 "Bright's Kill" for two reasons - 1 - My interest in Horse Racing and - 2 - It was available. For some reason "The Devil In ME" is not available in any library that I can access, is "Out of Print" at any Brick & Mortar Bookstore around here and at any online bookstore I can access. So I had to wait and buy it from " - A super site, BTW!!
Anyway I enjoyed this book but if I'd have read it first I may have decided that I didn't
