Out of Hounds by Rita Mae Brown


Sister loves to foxhunt.  She goes out with the group and rides hard and fast.  Usually the fox wins.  They have safe places they've created dens in and they go to ground.  It's not until they get back to their homes they find there was a burglary done.  It was a picture by a noted painter of a woman riding side saddle.  There are very few of those pictures in what he painted so it could be worth millions to the right buyer.  Who took it?

Ballatine Books and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published the 19th of January.

Then people start showing up dead.  At first it's the fellows out of prison working for one man.  Then an older lady was killed.  Sister thinks the cons were killed because they were part of the plot but she doesn't understand why the woman was killed.

Soon more paintings are missing.  All with sidesaddle women riders.  The whole fox hunting group is asking questions and watching for the paintings to come up for sale.

Then sister thinks she may know who the killer is.  It's while they are on a hunt that she gets a gun put to her head.  Will she and her lover survive?
