About the Author

Rita Mae Brown is the "New York Times" bestselling author of the Mrs. Murphy mystery series (which she writes with her tiger cat, Sneaky Pie), "Murder Unleashed" and "A Nose for Justice" (the first two books in her new canine mystery series), and the Sister Jane novels, as well as "Rubyfruit Jungle," "In Her Day," "Six of One," "The Sand Castle," and the memoirs "Animal Magnetism" and "Rita Will." An Emmy-nominated screenwriter and a poet, Brown lives in Afton, Virginia, with cats, hounds, horses, and big red foxes.

Reviews

Praise for "Fox Tracks" " " "[Rita Mae Brown] enlivens a timely tale with . . . amusing accounts of her four-legged creations and delightful descriptions of the central Virginia countryside."--"Richmond Times-Dispatch" Praise for Rita Mae Brown's "Sister" Jane novels "Brown is a keen plotter who advances her story with well-placed clues and showy suspects."--"The New York Times Book Review" "[Brown] succeeds in conjuring a world in which prey are meant to survive the chase and foxes are knowing collaborators."--"People" "One of the most entertaining amateur sleuths since those of Agatha Christie."--"Booklist"

In Brown's latest (after Hounded to Death), "Sister" Jane Arnold and her friend Tootie Harris are in New York City for a meeting of hunt clubs. Unfortunately, Adolfo Galdos, a personable Cuban tobacconist, is murdered minutes after Sister and Tootie leave his shop. When a similar murder occurs in Boston, Sister looks into the matter. As narrator, Brown does an inadequate job bringing her characters to life, though her tone is uneven. Sometimes she raises her voice for no apparent reason, while at others her pitch is high and squeaky. It is difficult to differentiate among characters as the Brown fails to modulate or change her voice with each one. Her animal characters cannot be distinguished from her humans. Verdict Recommended for libraries whose patrons are interested in foxhunting or who are fans of the series. Other patrons will find the audiobook uninteresting.-Ilka Gordon, Aaron Garber Lib., Cleveland (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
