Description
"In this thrilling new foxhunting mystery from New York Times bestselling author Rita Mae Brown, an investigation into a missing and valuable object flushes out murder, ghosts, and old family rivalries. Now "Sister" Jane Arnold and a pack of four-legged friends must catch the scent of a killer and unearth a long-buried truth. As the calendar turns, the crisp October winds bode well for this year's hunting season. But before the bugle sounds, Sister Jane takes a scenic drive up the Blue Ridge Mountains for a board meeting at the Museum of Hounds and Hunting. Brimming with colorful stories and mementos from hunts of yore, the mansion is plunged into mystery when a venerable hunting horn is stolen right out of its case.The only clue, on a left-behind cell phone, is what seems to be a "selfie" video of the horn's original owner, Wesley Carruthers--deceased since 1954. Odder still, Wesley's body was never found. When Sister makes a discovery that may explain his unsolved disappearance, it leads her back to the Jefferson Hunt at midcentury, with her faithful hounds at her side. But as the clues quickly mount, Sister is no longer sure if she's pursuing a priceless artifact, a thief, Wesley's killer. or a ghost. The only certainty is that someone wants to put Sister off the chase--perhaps permanently. Teeming with familiar and beloved characters, intrigue, and the rich local history of Virginia's horse country, Crazy Like a Fox races toward its stunning conclusion in full cry and packed with plenty of surprises. Once again, Rita Mae Brown dazzles and delights in her irresistible style, with a novel readers are certain to be crazy about. Praise for Rita Mae Brown Let Sleeping Dogs Lie "Cunning foxes, sensible hounds and sweet-tempered horses are among the sparkling conversationalists in this charming series."--The New York Times Book Review Fox Tracks "[Brown] enlivens a timely tale with. amusing accounts of her four-legged creations and delightful descriptions of the central Virginia countryside."--Richmond Times-Dispatch Hounded to Death "Fast-paced and filled with scenes from the world of fox hunting. Brown delivers the brush."--The Baltimore Sun The Tell-Tale Horse "Grabs readers from the opening scene and gallops through to the very surprising end."--Horse Illustrated The Hounds and the Fury "An intriguing story."--Associated Press"--
