The Last Horseman is a gripping story of a Midwestern housewife who secretly devises an epic gambling scheme to save the career of her alienated horse trainer husband — perfect for fans of horse racing, gambling, taking chances, women’s empowerment, and good stories in general.
Eddie Logan was once the nation's leading standardbred horse trainer. Today he's down on his luck, struggling to survive in a world where rigged races and corruption threaten the future of the sport he loves. As Eddie faces mounting financial pressures, he succumbs to the temptation of cheating, the one-and-only time in his career, only to lose everything—except the love and support of his wife, Jean.
Desperate to save the man she loves, Jean cooks up a lucrative–and illegal–betting scheme. With the help of an organized crime boss, she bets on race after race, risking everything in the hopes of winning enough to restore Eddie's reputation and career. Jean must stay one step ahead of the law while keeping her scheme secret from Eddie, who would put a stop to it, and the horse racing officials, who would ban her and Eddie from the sport for life.
As she walks a narrow line, Jean must decide how far she will go to save the one she loves.
