The hardworking single mother of young daughter, Joanna Brady still feels the acute pain of loneliness and loss, the hole that was left in her heart when her policeman husband was murdered. But Sheriff Brady is the law in Cochise County, and murder has shattered the small town's fragile peace.

A local gun dealer has died violently, and his stock of high-powered weapons has been cleared out. When two more slayings follow soon after, suspicion falls upon rancher Alton Hosfield, an embittered man at war with the federal government, environmentalist, area newcomers-with anyone, in fact, whom he perceives as a threat to his home, his family, his freedom, his isolation. An incendiary situation is getting hotter by the minute, and the last thing Joanna wants is another Ruby Ridge in her jurisdiction.

But bringing the cold-blooded killer to justice could take a terrible toll on her personal life...and unravel threads of family, love, and personal responsibility that might never again be retied. Download and start listening now!

    " Keeps you reading to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra Strange | 2/15/2014

    " Good series set in the country area where my daughter, Jana, lives. I like the characterization and the ideals. The mysteries are good puzzles, realistic, with a hint of jeopardy and adventure. They are for mature readers, with some language and frankness about feelings and sexuality (very tasteful and not usually explicit). in this novel, Sheriff Brady must solve the mystery of a gun dealer's death, involving shady characters and a weird quasi-religious community, at the same time she balances personal issues and a suitor. "

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

    " As always, I look forward to the next book in the series...Joanna and her department have a serial-killer in Cochise County...her romance with Butch Dixon is heating up...as always, a wonderfully paced story with great characters and sparkling descriptions of the Arizona high-desert areas...I want more!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/25/2014

    " I liked Sheriff Joanna Brady and the Arizona setting. A well-paced story with realistic characters. A knowledge of law enforcement procedures and a bit of humor made this a good read. I will recommend this author to mystery readers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott Whitney | 1/18/2014

    " I like the way this author puts her mysteries together. She weaves the story together and remains true to the setting. Living in Cochise county, I can picture the setting while reading the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 1/15/2014

    " Another good Sheriff Brady book. This one had lots of suspects as well as side stories. A gun dealer dies and the murderer is taking pot shots at animals and then shoots a person which is so much better. The side stories are sad and uplifting. Her bf's daughter is sick and ends up in the hospital and Butch says he's moved nearby. I am excited for the next installment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 1/14/2014

    " This is my favorite book in the Joanna Brady series to date! This book is very character driven but also has a good mystery. I guessed at the murderer early on but it did not detract from my enjoyment of the book. I love Butch and Joanna together. There are some sad parts but this book is very down to earth and realistic. Highly recommended. A fast read! "
