Summary
  • "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.

  • "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.."--
