Third in Rita Mae Brown's mystery series about "Sister" Jane Arnold and fox-hunting. Just as in the Sneaky Pie Brown books, the animals talk -- and often know more than the humans. Depending on how much you care about foxhunting -- or how much you want to learn -- parts can get boring. But the mystery is good.
Trouble is brewing at Custis Hall, an exclusive Virginia girls' school. When one of the two corpses ornamenting the student's Halloween dance is discovered to be real, headmistress Charlotte Norman and the entire community are stunned. The chase is on for a deadly human predator amidst the foxhunting crowd.
