Shedrow by Dean M. DeLuke is about the sudden death of a successful racing Thoroughbred, Chiefly Endeavor, and the New York surgeon, Dr. Anthony Gianni, who tries to solve the mystery. He solicits the help of a friend, Dr. Steven Highet, who is a veterinarian, and together with other friends they confront hoodlums and political bigwigs in a variety of settings.
I enjoyed the details of the racing setting, the colorful characters and the twist and turns of the plot.
I just didn't understand why some of the medical procedures had to be explained in detail when they had nothing to do with the story, especially the scenes in St. Lucia.
