When a middle-aged woman enters Lina Townend's antiques shop wanting to sell a white Beswick china horse which she claims is a cherished heirloom, Lina's instincts tell her to avoid the sale. Suddenly, wherever she goes, Lina sees the supposedly rare white horses. Something strange is afoot.
As she looks further into the matter, it turns out the horses are merely the tip of the iceberg. But Lina's investigations are attracting unwelcome attention. With her business partner Griff laid up in hospital and her relationship with her boyfriend Morris floundering, when she herself falls under suspicion for theft, Lina doesn't know where to turn.

Not even Diana Bishop could save this one.
There was always a promise that something might happen; it never did. You expect a mystery to tantalize you with snippets of suspense or likely characters who might be culpable. Not so here. The actual crime is only alluded to during the course of this clunker and with so many characters who add not a bit of spice to the "plot"this book becomes tedious and after a time I ceased to care what the crime was or who dunnit. I think one would prefer to read the yellow pages instead.
Something not by this author.
Diana Bishop is a superb reader.
