|Plot Summary of Blood Sport|
Gene Hawkins, a British Investigator, was on vacation or he was until his boss asked him to help find Dave Teller's missing Thoroughbred stallion Chrysalis. Hawkins agrees because he has nothing better to do then sit around and be depressed.
Hawkins finds out quickly that things are a lot more complicated then he thought. There's not one missing horse, but three, and there's a family of crooks that's trying to cover up their theft at all costs. This even includes murder. Hawkins tracks the thieves from England, to Kentucky, and then the Western United States, where they attempt to execute a cover-up.
