Septuagenarian Jane "Sister" Arnold is the highly regarded master of the Jefferson Hunt Club in Virginia. She is currently attending the Mid-America Hound Show, a major event in Kentucky, accompanied by her huntsman Shaker Crown and her apprentice Tootie. When one of her American foxhounds is stolen, her initial inclination is that odious Mo Schneider abducted her prized animal. However, she soon finds her canine next to Mo's corpse. Back home, she takes her injured horse to veterinarian Hope Rogers, who soon afterward is found dead; the police rule suicide but Sister believes otherwise as she knew the vet too well. She plans to investigate, but during the Virginia Hound Show, a club member vanishes, leaving Sister stunned with what is going on. This is a fun tale especially for pet lovers because he latest fox and hound personification mystery (see THE TELL-TALE HORSE) is an engaging amateur sleuth starring of course Sister and her allies (including her hounds). Although there are too many sidebar discussions that leave the story line idling in neutral at times, fans of the Sister foxhunting series will enjoy another visit to the Jefferson Hunt Club.

I am a big fan of Rita Mae Brown and especially of the Sister Jane series, so I was looking forward to the next installment. To my dismay, there was no expansion of the earlier plot lines, the new human characters were minimally developed, and often the animals had only a line or two of coverage. There were more political views than plot development! Even the hunt scenes are minimal. It reads more like a second draft, than a finished product. I hope this is just a fluke, and that the next in the series will have the depth that the first three did. If you are a fellow fan, I recommend checking the book out of the library, rather than buying it.

This book is one you will have a hard time putting down. Very unusual murders that keep you trying to figure out "Who done it?" If you like fox hunting events, this is definitely for you. The descriptions of happenings are unique.

I've been an avid reader and fan of Rita Mae Brown's books for over 20 years. I believe she receives audiences from across the board (gender, race, etc). I find her books to be intriguing, fascinating and spell bounding. I am also a great fan of the Sneaky Pie series as well.
There were times when reading this particular book that i too felt like one of the hounds, mouth hanging open and tongue wagging; waiting for the next "jump".............Keep up the great work and great writing.....
