He hires a livestock detective, Cletus Parr, with an office in the stockyards, to find out. The homespun Parr is soon talking to jet set horse owners, who think he's a rube. And that is an asset. He slowly figures out who did it-- and just in time.

About the Author
I've published over seventy novels, most of them dealing with the American West. I've been published by Doubleday, M. Evans, Bantam, Ballantine, Forge, Fawcett, Pinnacle, Walker and Company, Sunstone Press, and Berkley. I've written fur-trade novels, including my Skye's West series, and numerous novels about western mining. I've won six Spur Awards from Western Writers of America, which at this writing is more than any other living author. I've also written several mysteries under a pseudonym, Axel Brand. These are set in the 1940s and feature Lieutenant Joe Sonntag of the Milwaukee Police Department. I became a novelist late in life, after years as a newsman and book editor.
