Praise

Praise for Rita Mae Brown’s Outfoxed

"Set in a small town in the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains, the meticulously structured work could be a sociology thesis on the rarefied world of the fox hunt."
–Los Angeles Times

"Compelling . . . Engaging . . . [A] sly whodunit . . . A surprise finish . . . [Brown] succeeds in conjuring a world in which prey are meant to survive the chase and foxes are knowing collaborators (with hunters and hounds) in the rarefied rituals that define the sport."
–People

"A rich, atmospheric murder mystery steeped in the world of Virginia foxhunting . . . Rife with love, scandal, anger, transgression, redemption, greed, and nobility, all of which make good reading."
–San Jose Mercury News

"A snappy mystery . . . [Brown] does a masterly job of putting you in the saddle."
–The Baltimore Sun

"Original, funny, poignant, irresistible: Brown’s best work in years . . . Not since Anthony Trollope has foxhunting been so vividly novelized."
–Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
