Dark Shadows Over a Peaceful Landscape
Anyone who enjoys horses or the great outdoors will appreciate Crums obvious love for everything equine and her attention to detail.Publishers Weekly
When two riders are shot on the trails near veterinarian Gail McCarthys home in the California hills, she embarks on a risky hunt to catch the killeras she might be the snipers next target.
In this final book in the series, protagonist Gail McCarthy is pondering various life questions: Does she now lack the professional detachment to be an equine veterinarian again? Should she continue to work when the financial need is removed? What does a stay-at-home mom do when her child no longer needs her? Is a life of being, not doing, ultimately more worthwhile? But she must put these problems on hold because of the immediate threat to her beloved hills and trails: a sniper is killing women on horseback. Along with the gradually increasing incursions into the landscape from fancy subdivisions and conflict with traffic on wheels, motorized or not, a rider may now be murdered just because shes doing what shes done for years. Gail cant leave this one alone, and her friend, Deputy Sgt. Jeri Ward, needs her help.
Laura Crum, a fourth-generation Santa Cruz County resident, has owned and trained horses for over thirty years. She lives in the hills near Californias Monterey Bay with her family and a large menagerie. Crum has written twelve books about Santa Cruz equine veterinarian Gail McCarthy.
