Third novel in the Hunt Country Suspense Series

Globe-trotting photojournalist Abigale Portmann is in war-torn Afghanistan when she gets word that her beloved Uncle Richard, the seventy-year-old “Silver Fox” Master of the Middleburg Foxhounds, has been brutally murdered. Abigale reluctantly abandons her assignment and returns to the rolling hills and rocky relationships of her past in the picturesque equestrian community of Middleburg, Virginia—a place she’s deliberately avoided for seventeen years. 

The sheriff thinks the murder is a random robbery gone bad, but Abigale soon becomes convinced her uncle was slain by someone he knew. Suspicion swirls among colorful characters in the tweedy, foxhunting crowd including a superficial, nouveau riche social climber who’ll stop at nothing to enhance her status, and the lazy heir to an old-money fortune who has squandered his inheritance and is desperate to sell the family farm. But most painful for Abigale, the finger of guilt also points at her childhood sweetheart, Manning Southwell, who has a motive for murder—as well as no memory of his drunken whereabouts at the time of the killing.

As the gripping plot unfolds, friends become suspects and family ties are tested. Events for Abigale and Manning—and the hunt club—spin out of control as this riveting tale races to a terrifying finish.
