Time Will Tell

An eye-wateringly expensive watch is found discarded on the land days prior to a dead body turning up. "Sister" Jane Arnold sets out to find the connection between the two, with a little help from her friend--both two legged and four--in this transportive mystery from New York Times bestselling author Rita Mae Brown.

"Cunning foxes, sensible hounds, and sweet-tempered horses are among the sparkling conversationalists in this charming series."--The New York Times Book Review

Between organizing a joint session with her friends at Bull Run Hunt, leading her own Jefferson Hunt Club's fox hunting season, and looking after her beloved hounds and horses, "Sister" Jane Arnold is as busy as can be. She and her friend Tootie Harris are helping to lure home hunt club member Cindy Chandler's two escaped cows, Clytemnestra and Orestes, when they discover an expensive watch carelessly abandoned on an overgrown path. The last thing Sister needs is another mystery to solve, but when one falls into her lap, she can't help but get involved.

Days later, a young man is murdered, one with seemingly no connection to the pricey jewelry or a life of crime. His mother is distraught, and Sister vows to find the murderer. But when hounds on the hunt discover a truck covered in blood - with no body in sight - she quickly realizes she's in over her head with a cunning and clever adversary. Can she find the link and stop the murderer before they strike again? Only time will tell.
