Praise for Cold Burn..."Cold Burn is a hot read. Grab it." -Rita Mae Brown author of The Mrs Murphee Books "Ehrman's knowl edge and exposition of life on a horse farm is most impressive and enjoyable." -Publishers Weekly "Steve Cline...[is] increasingly irresistible in Ehrman's best yet." -Kirkus Reviews Steve Cline has managed the show barns at Foxdale Farm for the better part of three years. But he has a deal with himself: when he no longer feels challenged, he will look for another job...and he passed that point months ago. So when Corey Claremont, one of Foxdale's boarders, asks Steve for help because her brother has gone missing, Steve embraces the puzzle with enthusiasm. Two weeks earlier, for no apparent reason, Bruce Claremont quit his job working the night shift on a thoroughbred breeding farm in Warrenton, Virginia, and vanished. To find out what happened, Steve slips unobtrusively into Bruce's world. The more Steve learns, the more he suspects that Corey may never see her brother again. Secrets, jealousies, and obsessions are the norm in this pastoral setting, and the present seems to be repeating its fiery past...After discovering the works of Dick Francis, Kit Ehrman decided to quit a lucrative government job and went to work in the horse industry.
Twenty-five years later, Ehrman combined a love of horses and mysteries by penning the award-winning mystery series featuring barn manager and amateur sleuth Steve Cline. The author lives and writes on a horse farm in Indiana. www.kitehrman.com

Author Biography - Kit Ehrman
While working for the government and going to college part-time, Kit Ehrman discovered Dick Francis' In the Frame. Afterward, Kit read every one of his mysteries, quit the government job, went to work on a horse farm in Maryland, and has been mucking out stalls ever since. Ehrman became a barn manager almost immediately, moved around a bit, worked at the track for a brief time, then moved to Pennsylvania and worked on a breeding farm, delivering foals on the night shift. Ehrman then earned extra money by buying small horse farms, upgrading them, and selling them for a profit. Cold Burn is the third book in the Steve Cline mystery series, starting with At Risk and Dead Man's Touch.
