When his successful surgeon father disowns him after he drops out of college, 21-year-old Stephen Cline takes a job as barn manager of Foxdale Farm, which specializes in the training and boarding of thoroughbred jumpers. In the middle of a late February night, Steve visits the stable to medicate a sick horse only to stumble on a horse theft in progress.

Steve Cline has managed the hunter/jumper show barns at Foxdale Farm for the better part of three years. But he has a deal with himself: When he no longer feels challenged, when the routine becomes stagnant, he will look for another job...and he passed that point months ago. So when Corey Claremont, one of Foxdale's boarders, asks Steve for help because her brother has gone missing, Steve embraces the puzzle with enthusiasm.

Two weeks earlier, for no apparent reason, Bruce Claremont quit his job working the night shift on a thoroughbred breeding farm in Warrenton, Virginia, and vanished. To find out what happened, Steve slips unobtrusively into Bruce's world.

The more Steve learns, the more he suspects that Corey may never see her brother again. Secrets, jealousies, and obsessions are the norm in this pastoral setting, and the present seems to be repeating its fiery past.

The first book in the series was excellent, the second was ok, but this third one was BORING.

The premise of the book is ridiculous. Someone who knows Cline (we don't know how they know each other) is concerned because her brother is missing, so he quits his job and comes and works in a stable that the brother was working in in order to find out what happened to him. Sure, if my brother went missing I would ask some arbitrary stable hand to come in and investigate.

Once again Steve Cline is working in a different stables. Once again there are a large number of unnecessary characters that fill the story and who are virtually impossible to keep straight from each other and who are hardly developed at all. By about 50% through the book all that we are told is about the boring daily grind of someone who works in stables (including gruesomely detailed description of horses having babies) and the newspaper clippings that he found that might or might not be relevant. Then he sits with a calendar and maps the events in the clippings on a calendar going over each one again. Neither the protagonist nor the readers has any clues which of these are (or are not relevant).

Then Cline's girlfriend bleats on and on and on for pages about a course that she is doing which is really boring. Plus, he keeps asking people inane questions that they could not possibly know the answers to and even when they tell him they don't know, he keeps asking the same people the same things over and over again.

Kit Ehrman leaves no street unnamed as he drives his truck hither and yon. His penchant for detail is boring after so many jaunts around town. If Ehrman's books were not centered around horses, I would not read them. I suspect that would be the opinion of anyone who loves horses and loves to read about them. But his stories are very much about horses. I have learned a great deal about the backside of race tracks and the people and thoroughbreds that inhabit them. Ehrman's hero, Steve Cline, works with every aspect of the horse world, and always finds himself involved with evil-doers who try to upset the regimen of his barn. This is the best of the Steve Cline mysteries, probably because of the exciting surprise ending.

There are few things more terrifying to a horse owner than arson. This book's first, graphic scene of a barn fire immediately sets the reader on edge. In this Steve Cline mystery, the third in the series, the reader is transported into another corner of the equine industry, that of large-scale Thoroughbred breeding. The proximity of Steve to the likely criminals at all times, given that he is literally filling the shoes of the man whose disappearance he is investigating gives this book an impossible-to-put down quality.
Legend 33
This book was filled out with unnecessary detailed passages involving equine birthing and interpersonal sexual scenes which are not important to the plot. I got bored with them and skimmed through most of those areas. The who done it was a good story, just fleshed out poorly.

This is the second book in this series I've read and enjoyed. I know comparisons have been made to the Dick Frances books which I read years ago. This hero is younger and even though he finds himself in lots of tight spots also, I'm waiting for him to mature as the series continues. And to find out if he stays with his girl friend as there are others he finds attractive. The books are well written and deal with emotions, morals, etc. And to be able to learn more about horses, is a definite plus.

I am still reading this book through the Kindle for pc download and I like the book because of the suspense and change of events that are happening it sometimes gets into a little too much detail, which tends to take up more time than needed to finish the book. I recommend it though as it is a good read about horses and people. Some people don't like the language used in the book but as an adult I just crusied right by it. I have heard kids on the street say a lot worse things.

This is the 3rd in the series that I read and it keeps you wanting to follow Steve Cline in each of his adventures. While reading it you want to say don't go there you'll get into deep trouble. But of course he does but then that's what makes the character what he is.
It will keep you glued throughout the story. Kit Ehrman is a great writer and have enjoyed each book. She writes in such a way you can see it like you were there.
Kit Ehrman writes like someone who truly knows horses. I enjoyed the comedic content and well as the whole drama throughout the series. I found this on a lark, just looking and then read the entire series! Wonderful, touching and informational about the race track industry as well as the horse boarding industry behind the scenes look.

Really enjoyed.
