Second novel in the saga of Quique Hache, teen detective

Teen detective Quique Hache has another mission to accomplish with Gertrudis Astudillo, but this time he has to make sure his parents do not find out. He is hired to find out who is behind a very unusual robbery: someone has stolen the bones of a horse. Not those of just any horse, but of a legendary animal, Huaso, which in 1949 had accomplished a feat unsurpassed to this day—the highest jump ever made by a horse with rider.
Fifty years later, the place where Huaso was supposed to be buried is empty. The task is to find the remains and explain the robbery.
This time Quique gets help from some new friends like Bombo and from Leon, his lifelong friend.
