Publisher's Summary

When alternative healer Jude pays a visit to Long Bamber Stables to meet an unusual new "client" - a horse - and his owner, Sonia Dalrymple, she does not expect to stumble across a man's body in the darkness. Co-owner of the stables Walter Fleet has been viciously stabbed to death, and Jude suspects she may have arrived only seconds after his murder. Unable to resist a mystery, friends Jude and Carole begin to make discreet enquiries. It soon becomes clear that Long Bamber Stables is a hotbed of dangerous passions, murderous rivalries, and sinister secrets...and this horsing community will do anything to conceal the truth behind their deceptive lives.

Another good book

This latest installment of the Fethering series is well plotted and entertaining. There are several twists and turns to keep you interested. But the murder is not really what keeps you interested in the story. The characters created by Simon Brett are well written and very realistic. What I like most about this series is that, Brett includes a prologue that sums up any speculation about the characters. I would recommend this book and the series to anyone who wants a light cozy mystery.
