This is the fourth book in the Joanna Brady series. It's not the best book in the series, but it's a good one.

One of the things I like about the Sheriff Brady books is that we are dealing with ordinary people in unusual but believable situations. It's not the like glitzy best-seller thrillers that are so popular, where all the characters are powerful, wealthy people dealing with extraordinarily amazing situations. Instead, we deal with the daily life of a hard-working, interesting lady sheriff in a small town but a big, lightly populated county. Murders happen, and she finds out how and why.

And the stories are interesting, even without anyone being a senator or movie star.

I highly recommend this series, and I think you'll enjoy this book. (Unless, of course, you are one of those folks that require senators and movie stars in your books....)

Joanna Brady mystery, 3rd in the series. The murder of a local veterinarian seems an open-and-shut case, but the man accused of the revenge-inspired killing doesn't seem to fit the bill.

Sheriff Joanna Brady is the law. Recently widowed Joanna discovered early on that she could either avenge her policeman husband's death or could be buried along with him. Now, as newly elected Sheriff of Cochise County, Arizona, Joanna must find a way to fight the good fight while remaining the kind of mother and human being she respects. In "Dead to Rights", Joanna faces the ultimate challenge when she alone among her staff believes an open-and-shut murder case must remain open, and the obvious perpetrator may not be quite so obvious. Her instincts soon evolve into the will to survive as she gets caught up in the danger and deception of the case - and the murderer turns against Joanna herself.

Dead to Rights follows the career and personal life of Sheriff Joanna Brady, picking up where Shoot/Don't Shoot left off. It's an engaging story that will have you up all night to finish it and find out who the killer is.

From back of book:

Joanna Brady--devoted mother and the first female Sheriff of Cochise County, Arizona--knows what it's like to lose one you love, and her heart still aches over the murder of her policeman husband. But her sympathy for a tragically widowed ex-cop has placed Joanna's future in jeopardy--and brought her face-to-face with death in the high, lonely desert.

On their nineteeth wedding anniversary, Hal Morgan's wife was fatally struck down by a drunk driver -- and the courts punished her killer with only a wrist-slap. A year to the day later the irresponsible motorist is murdered and all fingers are pointing to Morgan as the perpetrator--except Sheriff Brady's. But Joanna's gut instinct is leading her into a maelstrom of danger and deception, as she trails the truth from a ghostly mining camp to the rocky spires of the Ciiicahua National Monument. Because now an assassin is turning his sights on her.

From Publishers Weekly: "Cochise County, Ariz., sheriff Joanna Brady has her newly elected hands full in this fourth adventure. When veterinarian Amos Buckwalter is murdered by arson, deputies immediately suspect Hal Morgan, whose wife, Bonnie, was recently killed by a drunken Buckwalter in a car accident. Morgan, himself an ex-cop, had been picketing Buckwalter's animal hospital, handing out Mothers Against Drunk Driving literature just before the vet's body was found in a burning barn. Joanna doubts his guilt because she understands his grief, her own husband having been murdered not so long ago. Besides, the widow Buckwalter is strangely stoic, even getting a makeover and playing golf on the day after her husband's death. While Joanna locks horns with experienced detectives on the case, she must cope with her rebellious nine-year-old daughter, Jenny, a bossy mother, budget-cutting county supervisors and her aching loneliness. The unlikely sheriff (her husband had run for the office, and she entered the campaign only after his death) is an engaging heroine, vulnerable but determined to meet the challenges in her personal and public life. Jance skillfully ties the mystery to the southeastern Arizona landscape, its historic mining towns and their modern problems." Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.
