One morning before dawn in the stables of her country estate, Lady Truelove meets a violent death in an encounter with a dangerous 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 Truelove's widower and the influential academic patron of Dorcas Joliffe, whom Joe one day hopes to marry.

Joe enlists old friend and former constable Lily Wentworth to trail James, and finds an ally in a fellow police officer familiar with the Truelove estate. But as the investigation yields surprising secrets about one of England's most powerful families, Joe discovers how little he knows about not only the gilded lives of the moneyed, but also 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?

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.
