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.

Hard boiled legal thriller ticks all the boxes
- Dominik Lukes
In a story well narrated by Dan Butler, Jack comes over as intelligent and amusing and his comments about the other characters are witty and to the point; the story flows well and holds the interest of the listener whilst not being so complicated that it is impossible to follow, a book that my husband and I both enjoyed.
