Nobody much cares for Nika Ballinger, but that doesn't mean her violent death shouldn't be looked into. Fellow horsewoman Robin Vaughan doesn't like the way the police investigation is going. In the perfect world of competitive dressage, Nika rode like a piece of luggage.

As Robin mounts her own search for the killer, she rummages through Nika's untidy past—and finds a bizarre double life that someone might kill to keep secret...
