Summary

When Jude pays a visit to Long Bamber Stables - to meet an unusual new client and his owner, Sonia Dalrymple - she does not expect to stumble across a man laying 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 Very Good Read

I say read ...though I listened via audible . Am completely hooked by this series !
This one , slightly darker in story line but moves along at a good pace .
Simon Brett is a great story-teller and has the accents making you forget it’s just one
narrator. Enjoying the continuing reveal of the characters too .

Bit more meaty........

As always, I really enjoyed both the story and reading. I particularly enjoy the relationship between Jude and Carole and the gentle unfolding detail about their backgrounds. Beware though, this story has some fairly heavy themes running throughout. It is more hard hitting than some 'cosy-style' detective novels but still enjoyable for all that.. I just hope that Mr Brett doesn't feel obliged to join the more harrowing style of modern crime fiction, as this is really enough for me to drift off to sleep on!
