Crotchety, 70-something Julia Clancy of High Hope Farm feels a little wobbly one August morning. With stables to clean and riding lessons to give, the stoic New Englander ignores her symptoms - and ends up in the ER with a heart attack. Even then, she's insisting it's indigestion; even then, her sharp eyes don't miss a thing. And a glimpse of something highly unusual will entangle Julia Clancy in the baffling murder of a hospital VIP.
The police soon have suspects galore and no hard evidence. But Julia tells her niece Sarah Deane what she saw...and what she fears: that the killer will get her next. Now amateur sleuth Sarah needs to make her own diagnosis of Julia's revelation and sew up the case before the star witness gets a fatal visit from Dr. Death....

I have to admit that I didn't listen to the entire book because it was so bad. The story line was ok, but the writing style and the reader were better suited to a teenage girl listener. I am very sorry I bought this book.
RETIRED & LOVING IT.
THIS IS A NEW AUTHOR FOR ME, AND I WAS WONDERFULLY ENTERTAINED. I AM SO GLAD I TOOK A CHANCE ON MR. BORTHWICK. HE IS A WONDERFUL WRITER, I WAS BACK AND FORTH AND THEN JUST KNEW THE KILLER. OH, GOSH, I WAS WRONG. HE DID A SUPERIOR JOB ON A FAKE AND A JAB IN WRITING TO KEEP US ENTERTAINED IN A GREAT MYSTERY AND JUST A GREAT JOB IN WRITING. I WILL READ MORE OF HIS CREATIONS. HE IS JUST THAT GOOD, I WILL SPEND MY ALMIGHTY CREDIT ON HIM!
