In the third novel of her captivating foxhunting series, Rita Mae Brown welcomes listeners back for a final tour of a world where most business is conducted on horseback—and stables are de rigueur for even the smallest of estates. Here, in the wealth-studded hills of Jefferson County, Virginia, even evil rides a mount.

The all-important New Year’s Hunt commences amid swirling light snow. It is the last formal hunt of the season; therefore, participation is required no matter how hungover riders are from toasting the midnight before. On this momentous occasion, “Sister” Jane Arnold, master of the foxhounds, announces her new joint master and the new president of the Jefferson Hunt. And her choices will prove to be no less than shocking.

The day’s festivities are quickly marred, though, by what appears on the surface to be an unrelated tragedy. Sam Lorillard, former shining star and Harvard Law School alum, lies dead of a stab wound on a baggage cart at the old train station, surrounded by the outcasts and vagabonds who composed his social circle at the end of life. No one can remember when Sam started drinking, but the downward spiral was swift—and seemingly deadly.

Murder is followed by scandal when Sister Jane discovers dishonest hunting practices going on in a neighboring club. Unsure whether to turn a blind eye or report the infringement to the proper authority, Sister and her huntsman, Shaker Crown, decide to investigate a little further, with the help of their trusty hounds. But when they come a little too close to the staggering truth–and uncover an unforeseen connection to Lorillard’s murder–they realize they might not survive to see the next New Year’s Hunt.

Intricate, witty, and full of the varied voices of creatures both great and small, Full Cry is an astute reminder that even those with the bluest of blood still bleed red.

    " This is #3 for me, and I can't get enough of the sassy sister, from Virginia. She's totally upper crust but, she knows how to get down and dirty when it comes to solving crime. I only hope I'm as spry when I'm 70 years old, I hope I'm this rich as well! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Madeline Benoit | 10/14/2013

    " I love Rita Mae Brown and her style, but I found this novel (the third in the fox hunting series) to be a little disappointing. There wasn't too much of a mystery involved, and it just didn't seem to have that "Spark" that the other two books had. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Earthwatchaddict | 10/13/2013

    " I enjoy the foxhunting information but I don't care for the talking animals. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheri | 10/13/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 9/20/2013

    " Fun read. Very little that is actually a mystery - mostly character development and fox hunting culture. Beautiful descriptions of the hunts and fun insight from all the animals, both human and non. Always a nice, light read. Good for busy times and airplane rides. "

    " I learn alot about the foxhunting world when I read this. It seems to me, that, it's not really a mystery as she explores the different people in that world. The mystery seems to be tacked on as if an after thought. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky Galambos | 6/5/2012

    " This book is the third in Rita Mae Brown's "Sister Jane" foxhunting series. This one wasn't as good as the previous two, but still good. "
