Rickie Alleyn had come to the island to write, but village life was tedious - until he found a dead stablehand. It might have ended there had Rickie not noticed some strange and puzzling things. Rickie's father, Chief Superintendent Roderick Alleyn, is called in to investigate.
Horseplay turns deadly... Young Ricky Alleyn has come to the picturesque fishing village of Deep Cove to write. Through the sleepy little town offers few diversions, Ricky manages to find the most distracting one of all: murder. For in a muddy ditch, he sees a dead equestrienne whose last leap was anything but an accident. And when Ricky himself disappears, the case becomes a horse of a different color for his father, Inspector Roderick Alleyn.
