9780099463382: Deadfall

Bay Tremayne, heir to a viscountcy and manager of his father's Dorset estate, has one burning ambition - to be selected to ride on the British Olympic three-day eventing team. But his dream is about to be put on hold. Arriving at the stables late one night to prepare his horse for a competition the next day, Bay walks into a crisis. Thieves have targeted the tackroom and viciously attacked fifteen-year-old Abby Hathaway, the stable owners' daughter, leaving her unconscious.

As Abby lies in a coma, what seems like freak chance sets Bay on the track of the thieves. Disregarding the advice of the investigating officer and increasingly unpleasant warnings from those involved, he juggles sleuthing with his demanding job and a competitive riding career. But, as the violence against him escalates and begins to affect those close to him, Bay soon realises that someone, under cover of the trouble he has stirred up, is trying to kill him for reasons of their own, and the race is on to find out who, before they succeed...
