“Hush Money” by Chuck Greaves

Why I chose this book:

Former trial lawyer, law firm litigation, equestrian show-jumping, greed. A good topical subject considering what is going on here in Tennessee with the Tennessee Walking Horse community. Fast moving and full of quips.

When Hush Puppy, Pasadena’s socialite Sydney Everett’s champion show horse, dies under suspicious circumstances, junior lawyer Jack MacTaggart is assigned to handle the insurance claim. But the case soon takes an unexpected turn, thrusting Jack into a spiraling web of blackmail and murder in which he finds himself both the prime suspect and the next likely victim.

In Hush Money, an acclaimed debut novel and the first in a series, former Los Angeles trial lawyer Chuck Greaves takes readers into the high-stakes worlds of big-firm litigation and professional equestrian show-jumping, where no one can be trusted, and nothing is quite as it seems.

“Cleverly intermingles equestrian show jumping, insurance claims, and high-tech science in this sunny California thriller. Great readalikes for tone would be Jack Fredrickson and Spencer Quinn.” – Publishers Weekly
