Comments & Further Information

A UK paperback edition with a 3 to 10 number sequence indicating a third printing of this edition.  Small crease to top and bottom right-hand corners of front cover.

A West Country Mystery.

SYNOPSIS:  “Nina Cattermole had an unusual death: headbutted by a horse as she protested against the local Devon hunt.  The official verdict?  It was a freak accident.  But when a hunt saboteur is found dead in a ditch on the day of Nina’s funeral, local DC Den Cooper is sent to investigate.

It soon becomes clear that this is not another accident.  Charlie Gratton has been trampled to death by a horse, the blows struck with such precision that they could only have been delivered by an animal under the control of an experienced rider.  It seems that Charlie, a practising Quaker, has been murdered.  As Den tries to solve the case he finds himself drawn into an insular Quaker community and a village divided by loyalties and past misdeeds…”
