About the Book

Homeward Hound

“Sister” Jane Arnold returns in a colorful mystery featuring four-legged sleuths --- and the breathtaking thrill of the chase --- from the New York Times bestselling author of CRAZY LIKE A FOX.

As winter deepens over the Blue Ridge Mountains, even the threat of snowstorms cannot derail this year’s Christmas run, not as long as “Sister” Jane Arnold has a say in it. With spirits high and traditions strong, a glorious parade of hunters in full holiday regalia gathers on the grounds of Tattenhall Station. But a blinding blizzard brings an early end to the sport. More disturbing: A horse soon returns without its rider.

Gregory Luckham, a controversial presence as the president of a powerful energy company pushing for a pipeline through central Virginia, is the missing hunter. A search is organized for what is presumed will be a dead, frozen body. What is discovered, however, chills everyone to the bone --- and points toward murder. Sister Jane will have to untangle a mystery packed as hard as snow --- full of history, secrets, old wounds and avarice.
