Dr. Nightingale Rides the Elephant
Excitement is making Deidre "Didi" Nightinggale, D.V.M., feel like a child again. There'll be no sick cows today. No clinic. No rounds. She is going to the circus. But shortly after she becomes veterinarian on call for a small traveling circus, Dolly, an extremely gentle Asian elephant, goes berserk and kills a beautiful dancer befoere a horrified crowd. Branded a rogue, Dolly seems doomed, and in Didi's opinion it's a bum rap that shouldn't even happen to a dog. Didi is certain that someone tampered with the elephant and is determined to save the magnificent beast from being put down. Her investigation into the tradegy leads her to another corspe, an explosively angry tiger trainer, and a "little people" performer with a big clue. Now, in the exotic world of the Big Top, Didi is walking the high wire between danger and compassion...knowing that the wild things are "really" found in the darkness, deep in a killer's twisted mind.
