    A Hiss Before Dying

    Brown and her feline co-author Sneaky Pie are back chasing mystery with their unique circle of Southern sleuths. And though the changing colors of fall are a beauty to behold, this year the scattered leaves hide a grim surprise.
    Rita Mae Brown and her feline co-author Sneaky Pie Brown are back chasing mystery with their unique circle of Southern sleuths. And though the changing colors of fall are a beauty to behold, this year the scattered leaves hide a grim surprise. 

    As feline collaborators go, you couldn t ask for better than Sneaky Pie Brown. The New York Times Book Review 

    Autumn is in the air in the Blue Ridge Mountain community of Crozet, Virginia and all the traditions of the changing seasons are under way. Mary Minor Harry Haristeen cleans her cupboards, her husband, Fair, prepares the horses for the shorter days ahead, and the clamorous barking of beagles signals the annual rabbit chase through the central Virginia hills. But the last thing the local beaglers and their hounds expect to flush out is a dead body. 

    Disturbingly, it s the second corpse to turn up, after that of a missing truck driver too disfigured to identify. The deaths seem unrelated until Harry picks up a trail of clues dating back to the state s post-Revolutionary past.

    The echoes of the Shot Heard Round the World pale in comparison to the dangerous shootout Harry narrowly escapes unscathed. Next time, it may be the killer who gets lucky. But not if Harry s furry friends Mrs. Murphy, Pewter, and Tucker can help it. Lending their sharp-nosed talents to the hunt, they ll help their mistress keep more lives from being lost and right an injustice buried since the early days of America s independence.

    Praise for A Hiss Before Dying

    Clearly the cat s meow. Library Journal

    Thoroughly delightful! Red Carpet Crash

    An air of mystery, a touch of history and that undeniable voice . . . Sneaky Pie Brown is back on the prowl. Daily Progress

    The staccato conversation style of the contemporary chapters contrasts nicely with the more fluid prose of those set in the eighteenth century. Brown s signature asides on such subjects as local and national politics, traditional art, race, God, and just about anything else that strikes her fancy give readers plenty to think about.
