Two weeks earlier, for no apparent reason, Bruce Claremont quit his job working the night shift on a thoroughbred breeding farm in Warrenton, Virginia, and vanished. To find out what happened, Steve slips unobtrusively into Bruce's world.
The more Steve learns, the more he suspects that Corey may never see her brother again. Secrets, jealousies, and obsessions are the norm in this pastoral setting, and the present seems to be repeating its fiery past.
About the Author
Praise For Cold Burn…
The nitty-gritty grunt work that takes place off the race track, and out of sight in the horse barns where mares are bred and foaled, is the backdrop for Ehrman's absorbing third mystery to feature Steve Cline...Ehrman's knowledge and exposition of life on a horse farm is most impressive and enjoyable. -- Publisher's Weekly
"[Cline] is increasingly irresistible in Ehrman's best yet." --Kirkus Reviews
“Cold Burn is a hot read. Grab it.” –Rita Mae Brown
"Open a Kit Ehrman book for a whiff of fresh hay and old manure and hot sweat, all mingled with deception and danger and death. Ehrman' sgot the world of horses and horse people nailed. It's easy and obvious to compare Cold Burn--favorably--with a Dick Francis novel, but if you ask me, no comparisons are needed. Kit Ehrman is a terrific storyteller in her own right." --William G.
