Overview
It's the middle of the breeding season in Upstate New York, and the top stallions in Kent Stephenson's veterinary practice are being systematically eliminated by sudden death, rare disease, and mysterious disappearance. Kent, his Redbone hound, Lucinda, and his teenage daughter, Emily, put their lives on the line to find out why. Their investigation leads them from horseracing's seedy underbelly of fixes and doping, to the staid aristocracy of Kentucky's famed bluegrass horse farms, struggling to keep their legacy of great stallions. Then they descend into the world of a super-rich, South American drug lord, who collects horses the way he collects beautiful women. It's a race to the wire as they jockey to keep themselves alive, save the stallions, and stop whoever is behind it all. What they discover rocks the horse industry. And it will rock the very soul of any lover of these great beasts.

About the author
Frank Martorana grew up working with animals on several farms around Schenectady, New York, and at the veterinary hospital of Dr. Stanley E. Garrison in nearby Burnt Hills. In 1976, he graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University. Since then he has been the "family doctor" for countless horses, cows, dogs, cats, and many other creatures around Cazenovia and Hamilton, New York. When he is not treating animals, he is hard at work readying the next book in the Kent Stephenson series, fly fishing in the Adirondacks, or making wine.
