Rochelle Baxter was an artist recently arrived from Washington State, cruelly cut down in the early stages of a promising career. Now all that remains of her lies on a cold slab in the Cochise County morgue, and Sheriff Joanna Brady knows that murder has once again infected her small desert community. But there is more to this homicide than initially meets the eye: the victim died while under government protection.

Instructed to swallow her indignation, Joanna awaits the arrival of the newest member of the state's Special Homicide Investigation team, a man named J. P. Beaumont. Sheriff Brady resents his intrusion and cannot help but make her feelings known.

But the road they are forced to travel together takes some unexpected turns, running them headfirst into the impenetrable stone walls of a conspiracy of silence. Brady and Beaumont's hunt is disturbing a very deadly nest of rattlers, and suddenly trust is the only option they have.

    " I really liked the audio version of the this book. The readers were incredible. One for JoAnna and one for JP. Excellent job. The book, although solved early on, carried on with enough interest until the end and it's normal "Mystery" twist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 2/16/2014

    " I really liked this for several reasons, it takes place in AZ so having lived there once upon a time I am familiar with some of the places where the action takes place. No bad lanuage or gross sex, but lots of action. You get to know the people and their lives outside of work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jerry | 2/10/2014

    " Have sighs every turn of events. Good book to bring with in a bus coming home from out of town work "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 2/9/2014

    " This was my first introduction of JP Beaumont. Joanna has another murder on her hands, but this time, the victim was in the witness protection program. Obviously there is a leak which Beaumont comes to investigate. At first Beau & Joanna butt heads, but then end up working well together. In Joanna's personal life, beloved Sadie gets sick and is put down. During this, she sees that Jenny is growing up and maturing. Her political side is gearing up as well with the election coming up. She decided to run again and finds out her running mate is Ken Jr who is the nephew of one of the corrupt cops Joanna outed when she ran for sheriff the first time. She gave him a chance when most others wouldn't and he has paid her back by undermining her whenever he can. I can't wait for the next one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dorothy | 12/15/2013

    " I liked the way this book was written. A mix of 1st person for J.P. Beaumont, and third person for Joanna Brady. J.P Beaumont went to Arizona, Sheriff Joanna Brady's territory. Sparks fly. "

    " This was a great quick read with a great pace. I was looking for a new murder/medical style mystery author (I normally read Cornwell & Patterson and the like). If you're looking for a good mystery, I'd recommend this author! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cherie | 7/18/2011

    " Jance decided the main characters from her two series (Joanna Brady and J. P. Beaumont) should meet and work a case together. It didn't work. I'm not a fan of J. P. Beaumont or Jance's style of writing in that series. But I love her style of writing (third person) with the Joanna Brady mysteries. "
