From the Publisher:
A country vet gets a circus for a client... and an animal act that's a real killer. Shortly after Dr. Didi Nightingale becomes the vet on call for a small traveling circus, an extremely gentle elephant goes berserk and kills a beautiful dancer before a horrified crowd. Determined to save the beast from a bum rap, Didi is walking the high wire between compassion and murder.
