(From the publisher):
You can waste a lot of time looking… Or you can pay me to find it for you.
Brodie Farrell is a busy woman, what with running her one-woman firm Looking for Something? and raising her daughter. So on her night off, all she wants is to spend a relaxing evening teaching her friend Daniel Hood to drive. But the evening takes a disturbing turn when Daniel hits a young woman who seems to appear out of nowhere. The girl, Alison Barker, is mostly uninjured, but before she runs off she accuses Daniel of trying to kill her.
The other man in Brodie’s life, Detective Superintendent Jack Deacon, isn’t much help; he’s too busy investigating a dangerous new drug called Scram. But when Alison Barker turns up at the hopsital, not as a result of the car accident but because of the dangerous amount of Scram in her system, Jack is forced to get involved. Alison claims that the death of her father, a local purebred horse dealer – was murder – and that unless someone helps her, she’ll be next.
Brodie once again finds herself torn between the two men in her life – Daniel believes Alison’s story, Jack doesn’t. It’s up to Brodie to infiltrate Alison’s world of show jumping and discover the truth herself, before it’s too late.
