Review:

"Former vet Gail McCarthy, now a stay-at-home wife and mom, encounters trouble while she and her husband and their six-year-old son are vacationing in California's Sierra Nevada foothills in Crum's less than suspenseful 11th equine puzzler (after 2008's Chasing Cans). Soon after Gail and her family arrive at their friend Lonny Peterson's ranch, Martindale County deputy sheriff Bret Boncantini, a childhood friend of Gail's, arrests their host for the shooting murders of Lonny's girlfriend, Lorene Richardson, and Lorene's brother, Cole, who together ran the local livestock auction. Though Lonny's fingerprints are all over the murder weapon, Gail's positive he's innocent and sets out to prove it. Crum's easygoing approach to crime solving sometimes defies believability, but her solid knowledge of horses and the ranching life will appeal to horse-loving mystery fans who aren't expecting a plot worthy of Dick Francis." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Horse vet Gail McCarthys life turns stranger than fiction when her old boyfriend, Lonny Peterson, is arrested for murderby none other than Gails childhood friend, Bret Boncantini, now a sheriffs deputy in a Sierra foothills town. Lonny is accused of the murder of two local livestock auctioneers, one his girlfriend and the other her brother. Both Gail and Bret are sure of Lonnys innocence, and decide to investigate. As they begin to turn up evidence and two more murders occur, the trail leads to Gails home on the Central California coast. And as Gail closes in on the answer, the ruthless murderer may decide she needs to be eliminated, too. Going, Gone features all the elements that Laura Crum is known for: fine writing about beautiful landscapes and authentic horse lore, as well as an exciting mystery.
