Publisher's Summary

The discovery of a body in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains dredges up mysteries that have lingered from Revolutionary Virginia through the Civil War and beyond in a supernaturally thrilling new tale from Rita Mae Brown and her feline coauthor, Sneaky Pie Brown. 

A trial is underway in Albemarle County, where Mary Minor "Harry" Harristeen and her trusty crew of two- and four-legged friends hope to catch a killer - who may not be the person accused of the crime. Since an old friend's body was discovered by the hunting club's faithful beagles, it has been up to Harry - with her crime-solving cats Mrs. Murphy and Pewter, plus Tee Tucker the corgi - to sniff out a trail of clues. 

Meanwhile, bloodshed dating back generations continues to haunt the current grounds of the National Beagle Club of America. Are past claims of ghost sightings still to be ignored? And what do these paranormal apparitions have to do with the very modern drama unfolding in court and the all-too-real threats confronting Harry and her companions at every turn?

where are the characters

I look forward to reading the books in this series. But most of the characters that make the books so enjoyable were not in the story. Even the animals were not as prominent. Harry and Susann were there and no one else! I missed them. I also struggled through the hunting with the beagles and bassets. Way too much emphasis on that and not on the story. I enjoyed the secondary story from the 18th century and hope in future books it continues. I also hope Fair,BoomBoom,Little Mim and the others come back in the next book. I just did not care for the Beagle/Basset Hound hunting club characters at all.

Another hit

Thank you Rita Mae Brown for continuing the dual storylines. Your love of animals, detailed research and great storytelling are why you continue to be my favorite author! Looking forward to your next book.

Not enough current story.....too much history.<br /><br />

Boring.....I want to hear more about the animals.
If I want history, I will read a historical novel.
The story was weak
