"The Hunt" tells the story of Doug Cummings, an attractive, driven, wealthy lawyer and horseman, who is the target of a twisted but clever scheme to frame him for murder. Doug's lover and then his former horse groom are killed and Doug becomes the prime suspect.
Set in the historic and picturesque Virginia hunt country just outside Washington, "The Hunt" depicts the elite small-town community of Middleburg and its close-knit foxhunting crowd. The books compellingly-crafted characters include Doug's beautiful but aloof female attorney, who is torn between her feelings for Doug and her uncertainty about his innocence; a spirited little girl whose special bond with Doug makes her the victim of a nightmarish kidnapping; and a belligerent cop whose judgment is clouded by a lifetime of resentment towards the wealthy equestrian gentry.
