Jim and Bill change holiday from college plans when Jim learns he has been left a half interest in one of the biggest ranches out west. Jim’s business partner, Frank Masterson, tells him he had bought out his uncle’s share of the livestock and buildings, leaving just a half interest in the land as Jim’s asset. Jim refuses to sell him the land, and grows more and more suspicious of Frank. Polo is a big thing locally, and Jim and Bill join a practice session. Jim is nearly killed. Jim and Bill join forces with other polo players with their own grievances with Masterson.
Duane Yarnell edited sports books, wrote thrillers and sporting stories, of which Polo Boys is one. It combines polo with mystery, with plenty of thrills and spills mixed in with the sporting action.
Finding the book:reasonably easy to find. The book was not published in the UK.
