Bead, Texas, is a dead end...Little white houses, the yard-of-the-week competition, new hanging files in the insurance company--that's about it for Bead. 
Not even the hit-and-run death of the editor of the Bead Weekly rouses this Texas backwater from its torpor.
But nosy newcomer Robin Vaughan, hunting for a place to board her two cherished horses, sniffs trouble in this tumbleweed paradise.
While her husband, Jeet, settles in as the new editor of the newspaper, reckless Robin asks incautious questions...Why is a famous equestrienne, a star in the exclusive world of dressage, holed up on a rundown farm? Who's the lurking local clone of Norman Bates in Psycho? Is it senility that makes old Boone DeWitt claim he's oil rich? Who killed nice Townsend Loving and why? Before she knows it, Robin is heading for a dead end of her own!

  •     Lousey, cutesy, a waste of time and money.
  •     I thought the book was pretty good. That's why on the scale from 1-5 I gave it a 4. I thought the book had a great plot with a lot of crazy twists and turns. I thought it was great that it kept you guessing who killed Towns. I also thought that the book did a good job of explaining things so the average person could understand. Instead of just saying she was holding a knife to her throat. They went into detail, they explained that she was holding an X-acto knife to her neck the sharp kind where if the victim made any kind of movement the knife would have plunged deep into the victim's neck. I thought it was great that every character introduced had a purpose one way or another. What I did not like about the story was that it did not go over a character long enough, I have a hard time remembering names and it would have made it a lot easier if they would have told the first and last name of the person. I thought the book should have been a little longer, because the ending is blah. It also doesn't leave a window for another book, but that can be a bad or good thing depending on if you like sagas or not.
  •     Allright, compared to the other 'Banks, this one's story seems a bit wobbly. But it's funny. Carolyn Banks has a sense of humor and reality that reminds me of the old tv-series "Soap". Really, they should make her books into a tv-serie. I'll watch.

  •     I haven't read any of her other work, but judged as a mystery and a horse novel it was OK. I wasn't particularly impressed by the plotline as it tended to be slow in many places. The ending, however, was an excellent surprise. This isn't a bad book, but I wouldn't read it again.
  •     A knowledge of horses, combined with a sense of humor make this well paced mystery a delight as we follow the adventures of Robin Vaughan, a Texas horsewoman.
  •     I have read all of Carolyn Banks' books featuring Robin Vaughn and this is definetly not her best.There were funny scenes and the beginning started out fine but towards the end it seemed she was really reaching for a story. Don't base your judgement of Banks by this novel,read DEATH BY DRESSAGE, that's the best!
