Thrill of the hunt : a novel / Rita Mae Brown ; illustrated by Lee Gildea.
It's the start of fox-hunting season and Sister is training a new generation of hounds in eager anticipation of Opening Hunt. But before they make it to that exciting day, a man dies, apparently by suicide, shocking a community that never saw the death coming. Then Crawford Howard receives an ominous video in which he appears to be doing scandalous, career-ending deeds. The video is doctored, but does it matter? The unknown blackmailer promises to publish the clip if they don't get paid, and even the most upstanding citizen can be brought down by the court of public opinion. While Sister and her friends try to unmask the dastardly mind behind the video, there's another apparent suicide, and then Sister herself receives a blackmail video. And rumors abound that Old Paradise, the estate being lovingly restored by Crawford Howard, houses a secret stash of gold from its original owner. Does someone want the treasure badly enough to kill for it? Sister and her fellow Jefferson Hunt Club members, including friends both two- and four-legged, are on the case -- and with any luck, they ll catch the criminals before the first horn sounds on opening day. -- Provided by publisher.
