|Plot Summary of Lead a Horse to Murder|
A traveling vet by the name of Jessica Popper was on a normal routine on a neighboring polo horse farm. When finished looking over the horse, she sat with the owners and watched polo players play along the field. It happened quite suddenly-a famous professional player falls off his horse and unto the ground. As they each run to see if the man is unhurt, it turns out he had died quite unexpectedly as he had taken many falls before.
Jessica begins to investigate his death after she finds out that he was actually murdered. With her live-in boyfriend trying to convince her not to look into his death, Dr. Jessica Popper keeps up with her traveling vet business and tries not to end up as the murderer's next kill.
