Jones tosses in a horse-breeding scandal, handled by Werthen’s capable wife, Berthe Meisner, at Archduke Franz Ferdinand’s direct request. The result is one of the series’ best at combining. Brandow enumerates the disastrous results of modern breeding practices—higher levels of cancer, structural deformities, skin conditions and more—and many of his stories are distressing—e.g., a baby bulldog that, despite bulging muscles, barely had the strength to walk.
