Supersleuth Spenser is off to South Carolina to learn who's trying to kill 2-year-old Hugger Mugger (a promising horse). He's making absolutely no headway, and then his client, horse owner Walter Clive, is murdered. Whom of the political-power-wielding Clives should Spenser suspect? Or was it the private security company? Or one of the other characters in this tangled web? Mantegna keeps track of all the personalities, always maintaining the bravado and swagger of Spenser, the intensity of his paramour, Susan, and the various Clive family characters. As the action heats up, Mantegna rides the action to its unsettling conclusion. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
