**** New horse-related mystery released by Poisoned Pen Press! ****

Those horse lovers who are saddened by the fact that Dick Francis will no longer be writing his wonderful horse-related mysteries will be interested in a new mystery/suspense novel, At Risk, by Kit Ehrman, ISBN: 1-59058-036-2.

A brief overview: Stubbornness comes with a price. So does pride. And Stephen Cline will pay heavily for both when he drops out of college against his father’s wishes and takes a job as barn manager at Foxdale Farm, one of Maryland’s prestigious equestrian facilities.

In this pastoral setting, where greed, lust, and jealousy simmer beneath the surface, Steve must draw upon every ounce of skill and courage when he’s hijacked early one morning along with some of the stable’s horses. When the police investigation stalls, Steve uses his connections within the horse industry and launches his own fact-finding campaign. As he moves closer to uncovering a conspiracy masked by the thefts, he becomes a killer’s target in an environment where everyone, no matter how innocent, courts risks . . .

“Both horse lovers and crime fans who’ve never stepped into a stirrup will relish Ehrman’s riveting debut . . . Ehrman treads Dick Francis territory with a sure foot . . . [and] has created a memorable cast. With his youthful zeal and perseverance, Steve Cline makes a captivating hero and sleuth, one readers will be eager to see again.”
~ Publishers Weekly

“At best, only a small fraction of first novels turn out to be first in a series (why assume that success for At Risk?) The overarching reason is that its author is thoughtful and clever, as well as skilled. Ehrman’s writing is unobtrusively crisp . . . The plot is intricate, intriguing, and solid in the best traditional style . . .”
~ The Drood Review
