At Risk by Kit Ehrman
If you love equine mysteries with a fast pace, and realistic characters and scenes, then you'll enjoy At Risk, Kit Ehrman's debut novel published in January 2010. It's free for your Kindle - at the time of this posting.
Steve Cline, a young barn manager in Maryland, interrupts a horse theft in the middle of the night when he returns to administer medicine to one of the horses. The goons rough him up and tie him inside with the horses in the large horse trailer, but he manages to escape.
He then becomes a target to the bad guys, with them causing all types of serious vandalism including fire and eventually murder on the farm.
Steve becomes an amateur sleuth trying to figure out who's behind all the attacks at the same time he runs the stable. Lots of realistic behind the scenes at a Hunter Jumper stable.
This is NOT a children's book or for a reader who likes cozy mysteries!
WARNING: Profanity, graphic bloody scenes and sex scenes are included!
