Ex-cop Elena Estes knows all too well how life can change in a split second. While working as a narcotics officer, Elena made a wrong decision that cost another officer his life and nearly took her own. Two years later, Elena's body is nearly healed, but her soul is still tormented.

Raised in the privilege of Palm Beach, Elena was part of the equestrian set. Now, working with horses is her only comfort; however, a determined 12-year-old girl is about to change all that.

Molly Seabright is scared and desperate. Her older sister Erin, who worked as a groom for local trainer Don Jade, has disappeared, but no one seems concerned, not even Molly's mother and stepfather. Elena gets caught up in spite of herself when she learns of Don Jade's shady reputation and the fact that a valuable horse "accidentally died" the night Erin supposedly left.

Suspense maestro Tami Hoag is back with a vengeance! DARK HORSE pries the lid off the seamy side of professional horse competitions and delivers a gritty tale of suspense and intrigue. Murder, kidnapping, betrayal and danger…this one has it all!
