The chase is on in New York Times bestselling 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 novel full of colorful characters, gorgeous country landscapes, and the breathtaking thrill of the hunt. Praise for Let Sleeping Dogs Lie   "A knotty murder mystery . . . Cunning foxes, sensible hounds, and sweet-tempered horses are among the sparkling conversationalists in this charming series starring Jane (Sister) Arnold. . . . The biggest thrills are riding out with Sister and her chatty hounds on a cold, crisp morning." -- The New York Times Book Review "[Brown] combines a clever plot, cherished characters and the beauty of nature and rural life to provide an entertaining whodunit." -- Richmond Times-Dispatch "Sister remains an intriguing and challenging sleuth. . . . [Brown's] foxhunting titles are great for readers who like gentility with a wicked little twist." --Library Journal   "Enjoyable [and] pleasurable . . . Enough with the demographics of foxhunting as most people view it; if I've learned one thing from reading Rita Mae Brown, it is to expect the unexpected!" -- Huntington News   "Whether you're a fox chaser or not, Brown's storytelling skills will keep you entertained throughout." -- In & Around Horse Country "As usual, Brown is at her best when relaying the animals' quirks and conversations, and mischievous foxes are a delight." -- Publishers Weekly   "Fun . . . [ Let Sleeping Dogs Lie takes] readers on an adventure." -- RT Book Reviews

display_description "On the Ides of March, an ill wind blows no good -- especially when it knocks down a tree limb in the oldest equine graveyard in America, revealing remains that are decidedly un-equine. It falls to Master of the Foxhunt, the indomitable "Sister" Jane Arnold and her trusty hounds to investigate an old murder with present day repercussions. To start off, the complicated relations between three old families and their prize thoroughbreds must be untangled. And when Sister's troublesome nemesis Crawford Howard sticks his nose in, she must make a difficult choice. Someone has killed and will kill again to keep a dark secret, but Sister Jane is not one to let sleeping dogs lie.."--
