Saratoga Backtalk/Dobyns, Stephe/Paper/0140247084/S047-B2
When wealthy horse-owner Bernard Logan is kicked to death by a horse at his estate, Battlefield Farms, it looks like an accident. But Charlie Bradshaw thinks otherwise - because, only a few days before. Bernard had come looking for him, convinced that his wife was trying to kill him. Charlie is about to go on jury duty, so he has his offbeat sidekick, Victor Plotz - "a high-on-pragmatism, low-on-ethics kind of guy" - delve into the details surrounding Bernard's death. Victor soon finds that all isn't well at Battlefield Farms. In fact, a host of people there don't like each other very much, and none of them likes him. Mayhem and misdeeds abound, including some shady goings-on at the Saratoga racetrack, before Charlie smells a rat - and wraps up the case.
