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.
