Where's the mystery?

If you like foxhunting, hounds, foxes, lyrical descriptions, dialogue between animals and learning about how a fox hunt operates from the viewpoint of all (and I mean ALL) the participants, this book is for you. If you are looking for a good mystery, forget this one. About halfway through, about the only thing mysterious that had happened was a couple of deaths (by hemlock!) of people we hadn't even met, and even the main character was only mildly interested in what happened to them at that point. The ultimate trap for the villain was pretty exciting, though. Also, the author narrated this one -- always a mistake, I think. She was a bit mechanical. Barbara Rosenblat or another professional could have livened this one up considerably.

Writer Narrator

Rita Mae Brown should stick to writing and go back to paying a professional to bring her books to life. I'll never purchase another of her books if she continues to read them. Many writers think they can better tell their story and I haven't found any of them that can do justice to their books like the professional can.
