"Jeffrey Anderson was a big man with a foul temper - a sadist, and an ugly drunk. No one cared that no trace of the man could be found when his horse, an animal as mean as its owner, came home riderless. No one except Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte, who is determined to solve the mystery when he is called into the case five months later. With his usual tenacity, he takes up the cold trail. What happened to Anderson, to his hat, to his stockwhip, to his horse's neck-rope? Bony must rely on his eyes and his wits to help him find the answers, for the local inhabitants are keeping their own secrets."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall .
