Author of the New York Times best-selling Mrs. Murphy mysteries, Rita Mae Brown delivers the goods with The Hunt Ball, the most entertaining entry yet in her popular foxhunting series. When a faculty member of the local prep school is murdered, the headmistress and "Sister" Jane Arnold, master of the foxhounds at Virginia's Jefferson Hunt Club, work together to uncover a killer. It seems the slaying may have been politically motivated, as students were demonstrating to call attention to the role of slavery in the school's past. With the annual hunt ball approaching, the 70-something Sister already has plenty on her plate. Does she have time to catch a murderer?More
"In Brown's fictive world, every fox, hound, horse, dog, and bird is given a name, personality, backstory, and dialogue. All can converse with each other and understand the humans, while Sister has the ability to sense what the animals are thinking. The hunt scenes are luminous." (Publishers Weekly)
