Publisher's Summary

The chase is on in New York Times best-selling author Rita Mae Brown's gripping new foxhunting mystery, featuring the irrepressible "Sister" Jane Arnold and the wily antics of her four-legged friends. In Let Sleeping Dogs Lie, a century-old crime reawakens bad will - and stirs up a scandal that chills Sister to the bone. Sister Jane and the Jefferson Hunt Club have traveled from Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains to the Bluegrass State of Kentucky to ride with the members of the Woodford Hounds - in the teeth of foul weather. Sister knows better than anyone that an ill wind blows no good. After the hunt, Sister Jane and her boyfriend, Gray Lorillard, head to a sumptuous party on a nearby estate, also home to a historic equine graveyard. The revelry is interrupted by jarring news: The discovery of grisly remains in the cemetery that are decidedly not equine. Now Sister and her hounds are on the case, digging up clues to an old murder that links three well-connected Southern families. When mayhem follows the Jefferson Hunt back to Virginia, the deadly doings become all too real: A dear friend of Sister's is found murdered. Sister and her animal friends must work fast to find a clever killer determined to keep deep-rooted secrets buried. A rollicking, riveting mystery, Let Sleeping Dogs Lie is a masterly audiobook full of colorful characters, gorgeous country landscapes, and the breathtaking thrill of the hunt.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I love her knowledge and ability to explain and educate about Hunting and Horses...her knowledge of 'Gossip' and old stories, is fun. I am a horse anything sponge so entertain and educate me a bit on anything horse and I'm good...BUT....

I did not know who the narrator was when I started listening...it took about 3 minutes to figure out it had to be the author...worst narration I have ever heard... RITA, Please give us all a break; put up your Ego, sniff the wind like the hounds and pick up the right scent! The pack is not following you... Will not be putting myself thru another ear assault...EMBARESSING.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?


How did the narrator detract from the book?


Do you think Let Sleeping Dogs Lie needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not w same narrator...better writing plotting editing...was sort of a phone it in & sloppy everything...

Any additional comments?

Too many questions...not really into solving the writers glitches.
