Author of the New York Times best-selling Mrs. Murphy mysteries, Rita Mae Brown delivers the goods with The Hunt Ball, the most entertaining entry yet in her popular foxhunting series. When a faculty member of the local prep school is murdered, the headmistress and Sister Jane Arnold, master of the foxhounds at Virginia's Jefferson Hunt Club, work together to uncover a killer. It seems the slaying may have been politically motivated, as students were demonstrating to call attention to the role of slavery in the school's past. With the annual hunt ball approaching, the 70-something Sister already has plenty on her plate. Does she have time to catch a murderer? Download and start listening now!

    " Just as good as all the rest. "

    " I enjoy the light touch of RMB's animal mysteries, and like RMB, I find my own pets 'speak' to me and each other, so I have no trouble with the animal characters in these books. "

    " read this while living in Crozet :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madeline Benoit | 11/10/2012

    " I love this series and I love Rita Mae Brown's great "outdoorsey" sense and how much of herself she pours into her novels. I didn't enjoy this book particularly because I didn't find the mystery to be terribly interesting, but it was worth continuing the series afterwards. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 10/28/2012

    " Just a fun mystery with a great cast! Horses, dogs, cats, oh yeah...people "

    " More fox hunting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 10/1/2012

    " This is another interesting story in the Sister Jane series. What I find most interesting in this series is all the information about foxhunting. The characters are interesting but the animals involved in the foxhunting life are what's the best part. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista | 9/24/2012

    " The author incorporates humans and animal narritives in a witty way. I figured out the who dunnit half-way thru the book but who cares? She tells a good story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky Galambos | 9/5/2012

    " Definitely much more interaction with the non-hunting world. The conversations between the animals left me in stitches. Very funny, especially the scene at the end with the hounds at the ball! "

    " Didn't finish; listened to first CD and couldn't get into story. Returned to library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 6/30/2012

    " I enjoyed it. The cast of characters at the beginning was a bit daunting. I thought I'd never be able to keep everyone straight. It helped that the animals' conversations were italicized. I knew nothing about foxhunting, so that was interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephy | 10/26/2011

    " Rita Mae Brown was one of the most articulate lesbian feminist theoriticians of the seventies. She has honed her craft, fed her gift and now she never disappoints. I like her. I really like her. Hunt her up and read her books! She also writes pot boiler mysteries with her cat, Sneaky Pie Brown. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marie | 4/5/2011

    " She used to be edgey, sharp, irreverant. Then the first of the animals-as-detective books were at least funny.
    This was miserable. "
