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 the 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.
