LURE OF THE CHASE
Glenn O'Brien, an Irish American, gets a call in his Boston office about a horse from an old steeple-chasing buddy in Ireland. In need of a break from creditors and recession, he puts operations on hold and takes a flight to Shannon. He hunts the horse over the Clare countryside, gets involved in some hotly disputed bidding for him and takes on a gutsy wager which ends in a match ride to hounds through the tough country of the Burren. After the hair-raising chase he is indeed alone with hounds when they account for the fox, but he is hopelessly lost on the moors. Finding his way out becomes a quest. He finds much more than the mere path out of the moors, he discovers his roots, his woman and his true identity.
Lure of the Chase promises to be a winner. As a matter of fact once started it was difficult to put down. Chances are when you have finished you are going to want more immediately.
