"One morning before dawn at her regal country estate, Lady Lavinia Truelove is crushed to death by a horse. Classified as 'death by misadventure,' this appears a gruesome accident, but Scotland Yard Detective Joe Sandilands suspects foul play--a misgiving he is struggling to separate from his personal grievances toward Sir James Truelove, who is Lady Lavinia's widower and the influential academic patron of Dorcas Joliffe, whom Joe one day hopes to marry. As Joe's investigation yields surprising secrets about one of England's most powerful families, he discovers how little he knew about not only the gilded lives of the moneyed, but also about his relationship with Dorcas. Is Joe prepared to risk a future with the girl he loves to uncover the truth behind Lady Truelove's death?"-- Provided by publisher.

Book 12 in the Detective Joe Sandilands series. I was perplexed when Detective Joe Sandilands appeared to be afraid of horses in an early scene of the book. In the earlier mysteries he led cavalry men in India, so I knew he was an expert horseman. As it turns out Joe's knowledge of horses leads to his solution of murder. Kristi & Abby Tabby

I love the Joe Sandilands series, and this latest book is excellent. The plot is first rate, and the characters are interesting. I enjoyed it so much I am reading it a second time to pick up more details. I highly recommend this book. I think it stands on its own, but you will enjoy it more if you start at the beginning of the series and read all of the books in order.

An enjoyable book,with interesting twists and turns. However, it's high time Joe jettisoned Dorcas! She is becoming a pain! She is way too young for him and this book hints that they may soon come to a parting of the ways. The vet's sister is a far more viable partner for him.
