Description
"Sister" Jane Arnold returns in a colorful mystery featuring four-legged sleuths--and the breathtaking thrill of the chase--from the New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Like a Fox . As winter deepens over the Blue Ridge Mountains, even the threat of snowstorms cannot derail this year's Christmas run, not as long as "Sister" Jane Arnold has a say in it. With spirits high and traditions strong, a glorious parade of hunters in full holiday regalia gathers on the grounds of Tattenhall Station. But a blinding blizzard brings an early end to the sport. More disturbing: A horse soon returns without its rider. Gregory Luckham, a controversial presence as the president of a powerful energy company pushing for a pipeline through central Virginia, is the missing hunter. A search is organized for what is presumed will be a dead, frozen body. What is discovered, however, chills everyone to the bone--and points toward murder. Sister Jane will have to untangle a mystery packed as hard as snow--full of history, secrets, old wounds, and avarice. Praise for Homeward Hound "Cunning foxes, sensible hounds and sweet-tempered horses are among the sparkling conversationalists in this charming series." --The New York Times Book Review "Readers will be charmed by Brown's endearing characters, animal and human, all of whom are given to philosophizing on the state of the world." --Publishers Weekly "With deep and broad knowledge of the sport, the area and the people and animals who inhabit it, [Brown] infuses Homeward Hound --and the entire series--with unmatched authenticity, Southern charm, beloved characters and engaging storylines." -- The Free Lance-Star

display_description "A mystery full of colorful characters (both two- and four-legged!), gorgeous country landscapes, timeless traditions, and the breathtaking thrill of the fox hunt, from the New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Like a Fox. Amidst the revelry of the Christmas Hunt, mystery and intrigue abound! When the fanfare is interrupted by the discovery of a body, "Sister" Jane Arnold and her company of loyal hounds find themselves faced with a pressing task--to uncover who has killed a beloved club faithful. It's no help that the meddling, loathsome Victor Harris lurks in the shadows, weaseling his way back into the life of his disinherited daughter. As always, the gang must untangle the complex web of clues laid before them, and with Sister Jane at the helm, they will not rest until the truth is laid bare. Yet again, Rita Mae Brown shines, her signature flair sure to win over readers old and new"--
