This is the first Rita Mae brown book I have read. It will probably be the only one I read. The writing is very linear, not deep, the mystery unmysterious. It is not a terrible way to learn a bit about fox hunting, but very unsatisfying. There is no real emotional draw to the characters, their lives are defined within strictures of southern wealth, and subtle racism. Inter-racial relationships are 'ok' if the nonwhite member is a financial success and/or descended from those that were either enslaved or indentured to their white ancestors. Feels like the author's drive to write comes not from the soul's need for expression, but from something to do that would be fun for her rich friends.
