Alice Rogers, an elderly widow, is dead, found murdered in the Arizona desert. It's easy enough to pin the killing on the teens caught driving her car across the Mexican border, but Sheriff Brady isn't about to let it go at that. Alice was something of a free spirit, with a penchant for Scotch, the glitter of Las Vegas, and a romance with a man twenty years her junior. Her hot-tempered daughter Susan suspects Mom's boyfriend—her former handyman who moved in instead of moving on when he finished his handy work. Now Susan's furious at her brother Clete, the do-nothing mayor of Tombstone, blaming him for not protecting their inheritance by breaking up their mother's winter romance.

Yet all is not as it appears to be, and Joanna is forced to put her personal life on hold to dig deeper into Alice's death, the lives of her greedy offspring, and the identity of her mysterious gentleman friend. And as the investigation gets sidetracked by ugly local land disputes, it takes some troublesome twists and turns, until Sheriff Brady finds herself wading through a murky morass of graft and corruption that may have given someone reason to kill—and kill again.

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

    " I love Joanna Brady. The navigates her way through being Sheriff, Mom, daughter and friend. In this story she is surrounded by liars, druggies, murderers, etc. She feels overwhelmed with it all but by her side is Butch who proposes to her over the phone between crime scenes. She agrees most ungraciously but decides she is happy and does want to marry him. Happily her family is happy for her and very supportive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara Liechty | 2/5/2014

    " It was a fun murder mystery. There were a few too many stories going on at the same time for my liking. But other than that is was a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 1/28/2014

    " This was a good one. I love the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jacqueline | 1/26/2014

    " I have read most Jance books and often feel the same about them: the stories are pretty good and keep my interest, but Jance is not a very good writer. Having read a lot of light fiction, I feel I have read a lot of comparable genre authors and feel that Jance's prose just doesn't flow. I keep reading though, and I guess that is the most important thing to authors. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ginny Wall | 1/22/2014

    " This is no. 7.... And was actually the first one of J.A. Jance's books that I read. Then I found out this was one of a series; went to no. 2, and followed the sequence thereafter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Hufman | 1/8/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott Whitney | 12/7/2013

    " Great story line, dialogue was a little flat, but I think that was the presentation from the narrator. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Redhead | 12/4/2013

    " I always enjoy J.A. Jance and this one reminds us to be thankful for what we have, rather than dwell on what we want or have lost. Very appropriate reading for Thanksgiving week. "
