Top ten New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance brings us another mesmerizing thriller featuring Arizona Sheriff Joanna Brady as she searches for the brutal killer of a young girl.

Brianna "Bree" O'Brien never returned from Skeleton Canyon. Someone brutally murdered the pretty, popular teenager who had stolen away under cover of darkness to rendezvous with her boyfriend. Perhaps youthful rage, jealousy and savage passion cost young Bree her life. Or maybe she stumbled onto something too dangerous to know. Sheriff Joanna Brady of Cochise County knows only too well the pain of losing a loved one to violence. But she is disturbed by the O'Brien's insistence that Bree's boyfriend is responsible for their daughter's slaying. Joanna senses there are words not being spoken, and dark mysteries locked behind doors of the sprawling O'Brien family compound. But it is the strange disappearance of a good friend that is pulling Sheriff Brady ever closer to the lethal nest of lies, greed and secrets hiding in a desolate corner of the Arizona desert - where the next blood that feeds the parched, cracked earth could be her own.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Once again, relationships between mothers and daughters shape and give humanity to an exciting mystery in J. A. Jance’s excellent  series about Joanna Brady.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Personally, I have never read a Jance book that I didn’t like…I think she is such an outstanding storyteller that I would read cereal box panels if she were writing them…This book stands alone. You can start with Skeleton Canyon now and then go back to the others [in the series].”

    Mystery Magazine Online

  • “Jance is an expert at writing rich mysteries filled with as much human decency as skullduggery…This is a solid yarn with strong characters and a full palette of local color.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Jance manages to inject her stories with a depth of emotion, compassion, and understanding that make them more intriguing than the standard fare. An engaging read in a series that just keeps getting better.”

    " This book was very enjoyable. I started reading one of her books the other day and really liked it. I put it down to locate the earlier books of the series in the library. There's only one earlier than this available at my library so I will spend this Summer haunting the used book stores to find the missing 3!!! "
