Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Mystery, 2013
A newly minted member of Henley & Hargrove, Pasadena's oldest and snobbiest law firm, Jack MacTaggart is assigned to handle an insurance claim on behalf of socialite Sydney Everett. Hush Puppy, Sydney's champion show horse, has died unexpectedly, and attending veterinarian George Wells confides to Jack that the great horse's death was anything but natural. Jack's investigation leads him into the high-stakes world of professional show jumping and down a path to romance, intrigue, and an old blackmail scheme that further implicates his client. After Jack reports his findings, another body is discovered. And this one is human.

I tried and failed...

To find any reason to continue to listen to this book. After two hours and passages like the following: "She giggled. I liked making her giggle", I have given up. I never give up. I use audiobooks like most, something to do during otherwise mundane activity, mostly running the dog in my case. I read the reviews. Clearly others find redeeming value from this title. I found absolutely no compulsion to continue to listen. I have read all of the authors this guy has been compared to and could not disagree more. Dick Francis he is not. One review described the character as wise cracking...that would seem to imply wittiness. I found not a shred of wit that could be considered humorous beyond the 8th grade level. I find that when I review reviews, that I am pretty critical of the negative reviewers such as the type I am providing here...so I imagine some will react the same. But, I am just providing fair warning. It just feels wrong to just give up after having used a credit, but why pay twice? I have had tremendous good luck in discovering material from authors I have never tried before, but ultimately it ran out. Not the end of the world though.

Terrific read

The lead in this story was terrific -- down-to-earth, smart, wisecracking, serious and with a good heart. This story entertains like NCIS entertains. Lots of action and characters you like. A fun, engrossing listen. Highly recommended.
