In Tony 10 (a reference to his online betting username), Tony O'Reilly recounts the last-minute goals that destroyed him, the shots that hit the post and the times when he vowed to get out while he was ahead, only for those moments to be lost in another surge of adrenaline. This book details everything from the terrifying moments in a hotel room in Cyprus with his wedding money riding on the Derby, to his disappearance on the morning his double life as a high-stakes gambler was discovered, the surreal three days spent on the run in Northern Ireland, and ultimately his arrest, conviction and sentencing to four years in jail.

Tony 10 is the astonishing story of an ordinary man's journey from normality to catastrophe and finally redemption - as well as the most graphic account yet of the damage wrought by the online gambling industry.
