THE CRUMB by Jean Slaughter Doty


Email this review


Doty's following won't be surprised to learn that Crumb is Cindy's pet name for her dun pony, and they'll share Cindy's anxiety when her accidental witnessing of a crime and her new job at Ashford stables bring her--and Crumb--dangerously close to a world of unsavory horse show characters who are involved in drugging their horses and, far worse, killing them for insurance. Of course the childishly affectionate Cindy makes an unlikely detective, but this moves so quickly from Doty's familiar, tamer turf into the disillusioning ring of big money shows that the pony class will have to hang on for dear life.
