A new mystery for veterinarian Gial McCarthy finds the female horse doctor the target of a murder attempt after she discovers two dead bodies during a routine call

Blackwell North Amer
California veterinarian-turned-amateur-sleuth Gail McCarthy made her debut in Laura Crum's Cutter to a well-deserved round of critical acclaim. The young vet's second effort at detection takes her back into the world of Western cowhorses - the working horses of today's West.
The pay's not great, but the work is rewarding, and Gail McCarthy is a horse vet with a hectic schedule - not to mention a dog, a horse, a house payment, and a new boyfriend all clamoring for attention. Her life is more than a little disrupted when she discovers two dead bodies during the course of a routine call. Murder is upsetting enough, but when a midnight emergency turns into an attempt on her own life, Gail begins to see the quiet beachside town of Santa Cruz as a rather frightening place.
The cops are not too concerned with the situation, writing off the two deaths as the work of a vagrant and the attack on Gail as the work of an overactive imagination. Once again, the forthright young vet finds herself trying to catch a killer and restore some peace to her little world - before it's too late.
Laura Crum has used her many years of training and showing cowhorses to craft a unique mystery where murder occurs in a world of modern cowboys and working horses.
