A horse whispering jockey and the world of horse racing, child abuse, and Mr. Marsden's death as well as Clarissa's continuing strategies to marry Jeremy make up the basic plot lines of this addition to the Sir John Fielding mysteries. Sir John leaves more of the investigating to Jeremy and Mr. Marsden's declining health means Jeremy is also taking up the tasks of Sir John's clerk. Jeremy shows several times that he is developing the skills needed to be a good lawyer. As with most of these mysteries, the details are somewhat gross, but necessary to understanding the solution and the just desserts meted out to the criminals. Altogether an engrossing and complex mystery and a furthering of the characters in the series. I was loath to put it down to do other things in life.
Too much detail on how a small girl was murdered. The first book in this series that I did not read.
