Valentine, a blind, confused and dying old man, seeking his peace with God, makes his last confession to a visiting friend, Thomas Lyon, mistaking him for priest. This puts Thomas in a moral dilemma.
Wild horses wouldn't drag from a priest the secrets of the confessional - but then Thomas is not a priest. Thomas is engaged in directing a film concerned with racing when he unexpectedly finds himself facing the old wild-horses dilemma. Should he tell what he knows from the confession - or not.
He discovers that the solution to his quandary could mean the difference between life and death. His life. His death. Either way, he is in trouble. Accustomed as he is to making difficult choices and decisions, he needs to call on extreme courage and cunning to sort through the chaos and keep himself alive.
Wild Horses is a masterly mix of fine writing, convincing characters and an inscrutable and ingenious plot.
