A stand-alone, so don't expect any of her series regulars to show up. Otherwise, solid Jance.

This is my first Jance book but it won't be my last. If you like Hillerman you will like this story. Inserted in a very good story are paragraphs of Indian lore that are interesting. Very good mystery about an old Indian woman, Diana and her son who come together in the face of a tragedy.

My first JA Jance book. I live between Tucson and Bisbee. I really like the plot and pan to read more. The reason I didn't give it a 5 is because the switch from present to past confused me momentarily. I also didn't understand the insertions of Indian folklore.

JJ Jance is a very strong writer. This is not one of her series, but still good/recommended.

this book was my introduction to J. A. Jance. the story was well written, the characters were believable and i really cheered for them. it's a suspenseful story intermingled with native american legends and lore. very well written.

J. A. Jance's Kiss of the Bees is the followup to this story.

I was disappointed in this book by J. A. Jance. I do so enjoy her books about Joanna Brady, but this one is entirely different with much grittier crime scenes. If you enjoy that, then you would probably enjoy this. The story itself was good, especially the family's story & the closeness of the boy and his nanny. I loved the interactions with their dog.

This is a suspense novel. A gripping thriller which is a follow-up on "Kiss of the Bees" The killer in that book, goes after the teacher on a reservation who put him away for 6 years for the torture-murder of a young girl.
