Devil Take the Hindmost

Went to Amazon to buy a book titled "Devil Take the Hindmost", a book about the history of financial speculation.

By mistake end up buying another book with the same title, "Devil Take the Hindmost"


The cyclists in the front cover gave me a hint that this might not be the book I wanted, but the synopsis in the back cover proved I was wrong (bold is mine).
"Devil Take the Hindmost, is a gripping historical noir set during the amphetamine-fuelled craze for velodrome racing which took London by storm in the late 1920s. Into this world stumbles Paul, a bewildered Scottish farmboy running away from home. Powerfully built with a fierce passion for cycling, he is taken under the wing of Silas, a local loan shark, and from there enters a world he is ill-equipped to survive. As the races get harder, the bets get larger, and the terrifying Mr Morton starts to take an interest in Paul's career. For lovers of Peaky Blinders and Brighton Rock, Devil Take the Hindmost is a thrilling ride through a historical London that is rarely visited."
I think I'm not returning it!!

Take care
