False Riches: There's only one sure thing... By John Paul Miller Cover Image


False Riches takes us inside the world of a fictional Texas racetrack. The tension inherent in horse racing-between love of animals and love of money-is at the heart of the story.

It's about an exercise rider - Amos Moon - and the courage it takes to ride racehorses. He advocates for the safety and protection of all horses, riders and jockeys. The story follows Amos as he uses a tip from a questionable source and makes a bet that changes his life forever. He finds his way out of a web of trouble and intrigue and learns what is really worth striving for.

The story also follows Rixie Ricksland, a private investigator, who is hot on the trail of whoever is involved in the crimes of horse drugging, race fixing, and even dognapping.

Rixie works for a federal agency, NESPA, charged with regulating equine and human safety, and demonstrates the challenges such an agency faces in the horse racing world.

It's also a love story, a crime story, and a spiritual movement toward reverence for human and animal life in spite of greed for money and glory. It's a complex, intriguing story and a reminder of just how powerful a story of courage can be. By providing a formula for a common purpose - it helps ensure there is a future in horse racing.
