On a beautiful sunny day in the Coronado National Monument, an elderly couple's car goes off the side of a mountain and into oblivion. The terrain is so rocky that a helicopter must be flown in to retrieve the bodies, and to make matters worse, a thunder-storm is looming on the horizon. Hours later and miles away, the subsiding rain reveals gruesome evidence: two trash bags containing human remains.

It's just another day in the life of Cochise County sheriff Joanna Brady.

Back at home, Joanna has a newborn baby, a teenage daughter, a writer husband, and a difficult mother to deal with. But in the field, it turns out that she has much more on her hands. The remains are those of a handicapped woman who had wandered away from a care facility with a suspicious track record. Another resident, with whom the woman may have been involved, has also been reported missing.

Meanwhile, a note is found in the glove compartment of the car lying twisted down the mountainside, stating that its occupants intended to take their own lives. Yet a contradictory autopsy report surfaces, and when the deceased's two daughters show up to feud over their inheritance, Joanna knows there is more to this case than just a suicide pact.

And she will go all out to find the truth - no matter where it leads. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " It was great to read an suspenseful and engrossing mystery over a hot couple of summer days. Though this is a continuation of a series with the main character, Sheriff Joanna Brady, it easily can be read as a stand-alone. (No, it is not a Western).It was a great mix of current mystery, relationships of past, present, and future, and an interesting portrait of the leadership and management style of a female law enforcement professional. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 2/13/2014

    " I love the the Sheriff Brady stories and look forward to another...I enjoy the ongoing struggles of Joanna and her family as well as the struggles to run the Cochise County Sheriff's department...in this one she has to handle the murder of one of her own...I particularly was impressed whith the depiction of the role of the "blue line" support for a fallen brother...like the Nevada Barr Anna Pigeon series, compelling reads!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 2/3/2014

    " Fast paced, full of suspense, keeps you reading - you can't put it down. One of her best books!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 2/1/2014

    " This is the first J.A. Jance book I've read. The book was about Joanna Brady who is the sheriff of Cochise County, Arizona. I thought it was fast paced and I liked the way the author balanced her work and personal life. I really enjoyed it. This was book 13 in the series. I have some catching up to do! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pmcdnld2 | 1/28/2014

    " I like Jance's mysteries. They are set in the Southwest-this series has a female sheriff balancing her job, a teenage daughter, an infant, an annoying mom and a new husband while solving crimes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 1/24/2014

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ainse | 12/12/2013

    " Could not finish. I had no idea where the story was going or even what the actual story was supposed to be. Usually I'll try to stick with it, but in this case, it just took way too long for things to tie in together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zoe Jussel | 11/22/2013

    " A person I know from my Arizona home town of Bisbee. All her mysteries are good reads, but of course,I always enjoy those most that take place in Bisbee and many of the local hangouts are mentioned "

    " I really wish that Ms.Jance would write faster. I love her books and this one was interesting and fast paced. I am happy that I am not Joanna Brady. She has way to many irons in the fire! "

    " Didn't dissappoint me. I'm sure hoping she doesn't quit this series. Joanna ends up with some hard murders and Butch has things come up that they have to deal with. She finds out some family things that are shocking to her about her Mom & Dad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 10/24/2010

    " This was just ok. It was obvious this was part of a series and I was missing some of the background. Hard to believe all of these crimes could occur in such a small town over such a short period of time. "
