The Hunt Ball: Book summary and reviews of The Hunt Ball by Rita Mae Brown
The Hunt Ball Summary
trouble begins at Custis Hall, an exclusive girls' school in Virginia that has
gloried in its good name for nearly two hundred years. At first, the outcry is
a mere tempest in a silver teapot a small group of students protesting the
school's exhibit of antique household objects crafted by slaves and
headmistress Charlotte Norton quells the ruckus easily. But when one of the
two hanging corpses ornamenting the students' Halloween dance turns out to be
real the body of the school's talented fund-raiser, in fact Charlotte and the
entire community are stunned. Everyone liked Al Perez, or so it seemed, yet
his murder was particularly unpleasant.
