Georgetown, Kentucky is a real place, where working farms have real roots, and is the setting for this small town mystery. While this story is what you would call a page turner, and is very captivating, there is more to it than what you read on its pages. If anything, the blending of fiction and reality can set the reader up for a line that is blurred and you don't know what is real and what is not real. In this case, the story is blurred to the point where you want the story to be real. You want to believe in the characters. The story set in 1939 starts simply with a seemingly dead woman in a creek. A small town man with an upscale farm discovers her body which sets forth a chain of events that will draw you in without warning. Scintillating words and descriptive characters tell the story page after page, sans long drawn out chapters, but a glorious simplicity instead. Field of Dead Horses will take you on a journey with what seems like a real discovery and genuine admission of what occurred on a farm, long ago in the very real Georgetown, Kentucky. (4 Stars)

What a great little find! Books that can take you back in time and you can relate to the characters and most importantly, you can't put it down. That's how I would describe Field of dead horses. Really enjoyed it and very good ending. Am looking forward to reading the next novel by this author.

Not your typical mystery - this book has a lot of depth and meaning. A page-turner, one you cannot put down, and you are sad when it is over. Great development of themes. A definite for any reading list.

This book is easily in my top 20 books of all time. The story is so detailed, and so well thought out I couldn't put it down! I love how it ended as it still makes me think about it, days after I reached the last page. Love this.

A great read and I really wish we knew more about the new family and their lives. But that's what happens when you get involved with the characters. Waiting for his next book..

Field of Dead Horses- I highly recommend this book to everyone. It grabs your attention on the first page and keeps it throughout the whole book! It's one of those books that you can see it play out in your head as you read it- like watching a movie as you read. The details and descriptions are amazing. Did you ever have a book that you just want to read one more chapter and then put it down but it's finally 5 chapters later until you do? This is one of those books! It keeps you in suspense until the last page! Pick it up today!

I like reading mysteries that have some historical and geographical roots. I like stories about real life that I can relate to with values I share. Brown's book was such a story. I don't like stories with a great plot that the author can't seem to put a worthy end to. Field of Dead Horses was most certainly not one of those! The plot is simply pulled together with pieces of life happening, held together with the glue of social and personal conflict, flavored with the good versus the not so good of people i thought surely I have known. The ending is a pleasant surprise which slowly dawned on me, leaving me with appreciation for a good story, well told, delivering a solid completion. This book was a good investment, delivering solid returns. I recommend Nick Brown's Field of Dead Horses to you as I await his next story.

Once I read a book in one day. I haven't done that since until this book. I freaking love it and I wish there was a sequel - but that wouldn't make sense. The last chapter is insanely awesome!

One of the best things about this book is that you can't put it down. I could clearly see the characters faces as I read and I found myself trying to guess the ending with several possible outcomes and none of them were close. I particularly enjoy books that keep you guessing and entertained at the same time.

I loved this book! I want there to be a real Elliott Chapel! It read like he was a real person in Kentucky. I have to remind myself that he is fictional. I loved learning about horse farms and race track training. Interesting! The book keeps you engaged till the very end and the surprise at the end leaves you feeling excited, satisfied and looking forward to the next Nick Allen Brown book. He is quite a talented writer and spins a good story. Please say there will someday be a movie! I will certainly read this one again in the future!
