Overview

When drug dealers murdered her lawman husband, Joanna Brady vowed she would carry on his good work no matter what the cost. With grit, courage, and dogged determination, she challenged the status quo—and won. Now, as newly elected Sheriff of Cochise County, Arizona, she must battle the prejudice and hostility of a mistrustful, male-dominated police force and solve a grisly double homicide that threatens to tear the sleepy desert community to pieces. For the two bodies baking in the harsh Southwestern sun are connected by sinister threads that reach back generations—and by devastating family secrets of greed, hatred, and shocking abuse that could destroy the innocent along with the guilty.

Shame on me.......I usually lean to male authors but I have read several of this authors books and I am liking them more and more. I like this sherriff because she is not overly feminine but she isn't arrogant either. A few times I thought the story dragged a bit but all in all good read I am on to the next in this series

This was a good read. Joanna Brady must cope with the newness of single motherhood, career change and grief. Not to mention the double homicide which she is thrown into. She does it with common sense for the most part, though bumbles a bit in her inexperience. I like her. She is humble, but confident which is a nice combination. Other characters in the story have potential to be interesting as well. My favorite character was Harold Patterson. I thought he was very well written. The mystery of this story was not obscure to me, but I enjoyed the telling of it so much that I ignored my strict bedtime and didn't get enough sleep last night. I will read more of J.A. Jance's novels.

Enjoyable mystery starring recent widow who is running for Sheriff and has to face down an old-boy network in the Sheriff's department and help solve a convoluted murder driven by a painful family secret. The book is stronger on family melodrama and colorful characters, and weaker on plot details and setting. The plot seemed to me to have a few holes and to rely on some strained coincidences. I still can't figure out how the victim(s)' bodies got where they ended up.

Newly elected Sheriff Joanna Brady investigates the murder of a prominent citizen and finds herself in the midst of the dead man's unpleasant family secrets, racing against time and a killer who plans to strike again. Really good read. This is the first J A Jance I've read & look forward to reading more.
