One of Humboldt’s well-known horse breeders is brutally murdered, then left to burn in his barn along with his prized stallions. A Jack Logan client has been accused of the murder and Carson has been called in to investigate.
However, getting to the truth is proving to be a real challenge. It seems no one, not even the accused, is capable of telling the truth.
Greed, lust, infidelity, half-truths and the Memphis Mafia all seem to be involved – somehow. Sorting out the pieces and finding the real murderer, will be a monumental task.
Carson becomes involved in the web of lies and faces one of his biggest challenges, as he tries to solve the case of Horse Tales.

As a native of the real town that is the setting for most of the Carson Reno adventures, I probably get more involved than the casual reader of mysteries. But, aside from being able to actually remember the locations in the book, the stories are logically devised and well written. Carson, as chronicled by Gerald, is fun to follow.
