It’s February, prime foxhunting season for the members of Virginia’s Jefferson Hunt Club, when a shocking event alarms the community. A woman is found brutally murdered, stripped naked, and meticulously placed atop a horse statue outside a tack shop. The theft of a treasured foxhunting prize inside the store may be linked to the grisly scene, and everyone is on edge. With few clues to go on, “Sister” Jane Arnold, master of the Jefferson Hunt Club, uses her fine-tuned horse sense to try to solve the mystery of this “Lady Godiva” murder. But Sister isn’t the only one equipped to sniff out the trail. The local foxes, horses, and hounds have their own theories on the whodunit. If only these peculiar humans could just listen to them, they’d see that the killer might be right under their oblivious noses-and that Sister could become the killer’s next victim.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 12/5/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louise | 11/24/2013

    " Enjoyed this story so different from the life I lead "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marianne | 10/28/2013

    " Great book, enjoyed the characters very much. A must for horse or fox hunt lovers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meghan | 9/13/2013

    " Though all of the "Sister" books are a bit heavy on foxhunting details, this one allows too many pages for foxhunting etiquette and attire at the expense of the mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sjct | 8/17/2013

    " I should go ahead and give this book 5 stars even tho I just started it. I love me some Rita Mae Brown. She uses a gimmick: The animals in her two successful series of books talk to each other. And she does this beautifully, logically and, most amazing of all, quite believably. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dimps | 4/30/2013

    " The best one of the series so far. I can only hope that she writes more Jefferson Hunt Mysteries. They just keep getting better and better! "

    " Another in the series of Jane Arnold, Master of a foxhunt in Virginia who ends up having to deal with mysteries. Light reading mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky Galambos | 12/25/2011

    " Another good novel in the Sister Jane series, and she actually makes her ranting fit in with the mystery, something that is missing in her more recent books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Agneata | 11/3/2011

    " Clever? Engaging? So they said, I wad bored by all the discussion of Fox Hunting etiquette and various rambling thoughts from 'Sister'. I finally skipped to the end to find out who-did-it. "

    " Got a little tired of reading about the death of Sister's husband Ray and son RayRay. It just kept coming up and coming up. I've always enjoyed Ms. Brown's animals and characters, but this time the characters weren't very likable. "
