Laura Marlin Mysteries: Kentucky Thriller : Book 3 Paperback
Part of the Laura Marlin Mysteries series
Eleven-year-old ace detective Laura Marlin finds herself deep in the murky world of race-fixing, trickery and horse thieves in her third mystery adventure, from award-winning author Lauren St John.
Laura Marlin's two greatest loves in life are detective novels and animals, so she is ecstatic when her uncle agrees to let her keep a horse after they rescue it, crazed with fear, from an overturned horsebox.
But he has a condition. Before he will allow her to adopt it they have to find its former owner, just to ensure that it hasn't been stolen.
A visit to Newmarket to investigate the thoroughbred's origins leads Laura to the Kentucky Derby in the US and deep into the murky world of race-fixing.
