When Nancy investigates the theft of a Tibetan antiquity from a local museum, she discovers that there’s more to the mystery than a simple case of burglary. The golden horse is a very special kind of prize, and it attracts a very special kind of horse thief—a crook as daring as he is elusive, as cunning as he is ruthless. Duplicity, sabotage, and death threats are the tools of this criminal’s trade. Drawn into a cleverly crafted web of lies and deceptions, Nancy finds that the trail to the truth is littered with poisoned clues and hidden traps. And she knows only one thing for sure: in the run for the gold, she runs the risk of taking a fatal fall.
