Local Description

This is a great New Zealand thriller novel. A small town pub, the Black Horse, is held up by a man with a rifle and an exceptional amount of cash is taken. The exceptional amount of cash in the hotel at the time sets in train a series of events where everybody, including Toni the publican, is seemingly suspect. You, the reader, know that Toni is innocent, but it is all the brutality of gang life and the inner workings of corporates as they try to cover their wrongful actions that make this novel unputdownable. - Peter

Description

Inside the Black Horse is a fast-moving thriller, a story of fate, and unlikely love story for our time. Pio Morgan is waiting outside a pub on a cold winter night. There is a debt he must pay and no options left. What he does next drags a group of strangers into a web of confusion that over the course of a few days changes all their lives. The young Maori widow just trying to raise her children, the corporate executive hiding his mistake, the gang of criminals that will do what ever it takes to recover what they've lost - and the outsider sent to town to try and figure out who did what. Time is running out for all of them as events take an increasingly dark turn.
