Amazon.com: Walk Trot Die just 99c

Walk Trot Die

~ Susan Kiernan-Lewis (author) More about this product
Price: $8.99

Atlanta Detectives Jack Burton and David Kazmaroff have a peculiar dynamic in the way they solve their homicide cases: they loathe each other. Aside from that, they are a match made in heaven, with more cases solved than any other partnership in the entire city of Atlanta Homicide department.

 

That track record comes in handy when a much-hated account executive from a prominent Atlanta advertising agency turns up missing-presumed-dead during a routine trail ride at her upscale polo barn with the list of likely suspects to have offed her more numerous than ticks on a coon dog. Or in this case, fleas on a Jack Russell.

 

If you love horses with a little murder on the side, you’re going to love Walk. Trot. Die..
Now if the detectives on the case and the Atlanta equestrians at the elite training barn can just keep from killing each other…..

 

Also available in paperback for 8.99.
