Reveals how the investigation into the 1977 disappearance of Chicago heiress Helen Brach unearthed a scandal of greed, cruelty, and betrayal that rocked the glamorous world of thoroughbred horsebreeding.

Blackwell North Amer
The disappearance of fabulously rich Chicago candy heiress Helen Brach and the suspicious deaths of a string of champion racehorses are linked in a celebrated scandal that has reverberated through every level of the glamorous enclaves of thoroughbred horse breeding.
When widowed heiress Helen Brach suddenly disappeared on the morning of February 17, 1977, after a visit to the Mayo Clinic, she left behind a lavender Rolls-Royce, Cadillacs in red, pink, and coral, an eighteen-room mansion, and a fortune now estimated at 75 million. She also left behind a mystery that would tantalize investigators for years.
When Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Miller assigned himself the challenge of solving the Brach case, he never imagined an investigation of the horse world would lead to a charming gigolo named Richard Bailey, who made a career of romancing wealthy women out of huge sums of money, a shadowy figure called The Sandman, who made his living by killing priceless horses so that their owners could collect insurance, and the ghastly murder of three children in 1955.
