Case 28: Centaur

Case Twenty Eight. Centaur? Centaur! Mat Ewins dons his best silks and climbs into his stirrups as he launches into Hoof Hefner, convicted fraudster and horse trainer extraordinaire. A bizarre tale of lies, deceit and the charms a man with horse legs can hold over simple folk, one for the record books but for all the wrong reasons.
