A thoroughbred trainer is the number one suspect when his ex-wife is found murdered. The only way he can avoid the cops is by finding the murderer. A fairly standard plot device to get an amateur detective involved, this would be more interesting if the horse angle were played up more. It isn’t, though, and the suspect pool dwindles quickly, as the murderer becomes fairly obvious. This is a short, very quick read, though, which is worth some stars. Two-and-a-half, I’d say.
