Summary:

"Spring is peeking through the frost in Virginia, and though the hunting season is coming to a close, the foxes seem determined to put the members of the Jefferson Hunt Club through their paces. Sister and her friends are enjoying some of the best chases they've had all season when the fun is cut short by the theft of Crawford Howard's treasured Sir Alfred Munnings painting of a woman in hunting attire riding sidesaddle. When another painting goes missing five days later - also a Munnings, also of a woman hunting sidesaddle - Sister Jane knows it's no coincidence. Someone is stealing paintings of foxhunters from foxhunters. But why? Perhaps it's a form of protest against their sport. For the hunt club isn't just under attack from the thief. Mysterious signs have started to appear outside their homes, decrying their way of life. STOP FOXHUNTING: A CRUEL SPORT reads one that appears outside Crawford's house, not long after his painting goes missing. NO HOUNDS BARKING shows up on the telephone pole outside Sister's driveway. Annoying, but relatively harmless. Then Delores Buckingham, retired now but once a formidable fox-hunter, is strangled to death after her own Munnings sidesaddle painting is stolen. Now Sister's not just up against a thief and a few obnoxious signs - she's on the hunt for a killer."--Back cover.
