The dead woman on a cold slab in the Arizona morgue was a talented artist recently arrived from the West Cost. The Washington State Attorney General's office thinks this investigation is too big for a small-town female law officer to handle, so the're sending Sheriff Joanna Brady some unwanted help-a seasoned detective named Beaumont. Sheriff Brady resents his intrusion, and Bisbee, Arizona, with its ghosts and memories, is the last place J.P. Beaumont wants to be. But the twisting desert road they must reluctantly travel together is leading them into a very deadly nest of rattlers. And if they hope to survive, suddenly trust is the only option they have left...
Great read, easy and fun.

So far, this has been my favorite story of the Joanna Brady series. It was fast, kept my interest and had a great plot. Looking forward to reading the entire series.

This is a very good book with both Detective Beaumont and Sheriff Brady solving a crime in Bisbee, AZ, where the Sheriff is stationed. I liked both the characters a lot, and have read a previous Beaumont thriller. The characters seemed real to me, and it was fast reading!

Two of Jance's recurring characters, Sheriff Joanna Brady and Special Investigator J. P. Beaumont, team up to solve the murder of a young woman in the witness protection program. Tense, well-written - this is a mystery that you won't solve until the very end. Good from cover to cover. Recommended!

This brought both of my favorite series together. Even if it was for only one book. Jance did a wonderful job of keeping her characters true to her other books of them and finds a way of making them work together. They're both stubborn, and set in their ways of doing things. Beau is very clever and finds his own way around town while Joanna and her department wishes he'd just leave. They say opposites attract....

"The best thing about J. A. Jance's books... is the way she can move from an exciting, dangerous scene on one page to a sensitive, personal, touching moment on the next." Chicago Tribune

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I love the Joanna Brady series and the JP Beaumont series. I thought the coming together of the two characters would be a disaster. Ms Jance handled it beautifully! Very Good!

I've been reading Joanna Brady series books for some time (mostly listening on tape to them), so when this one came around, I listened to it on tape, too. It was my introduction to J.P. Beaumont, the Seattle police detective that Jance writes about in another separate long series of books. I have to say that I'm glad to have met Beau, as they call him. I immediately started looking for tapes of those books. They're on my wish list now. Anyway, this book is a good one, whether you read it or listen to it. A fascinating mystery, great characters, including two strong-minded but admirable police officers who want to do things their own way, and a satisfying investigation make for a great story.

This story includes both Arizona Sheriff Joanna Brady and Seattle Homicide Investigator J. P. Beaumont, working on a case together for the first time. The suspense was good, the clues were slyly scattered (making me groan with "I shoulda known!" a few times), and the story line gave me a few scares that carry over into real life.

Many times a narrator fails at distinguishing voices without sounding silly. In this book, having two narrators (male and female) is the perfect solution. They give Brady and Beaumont strong, clear personalities, and make their interactions seem very natural.

I had previously read all of Jance's Brady stories, and this book encouraged me to start following the Beaumont series, too.

They both are on the side of law and order, but Joanna Brady the small town's sheriff doesn't want any help from the out-of-town detective named Beaumont. To make matters worse, Beaumont doesn't want to be there either. But the two learn they've got to work together if they want to solve the murder of a local artist.

Another excellent Joanna Brady book, but what makes this one unique is J.P. Beaumont is sent down to Arizona from Washington to "help" with Sheriff Brady's investigation into a suspicious death of an artist. Sparks fly when he shows up, but in the end, the crime is solved and friendships (?) are made. A few good twists throughout, which makes this a nice read. If you're not familiar with Special Investigator Beaumont, he is the main character in another J.A. Jance series - and a great one at that, so bringing these two crime solvers together was a natural.

oh, man, I had already read this one! But I read it again anyway. It's really good. J A Jance has a few different series; in this book sheriff Joanna Brady meets and works on a case with JP Beaumont. It's interestin to read because her Joanna Brady books are written in 3rd person and her JP Beaumont books are written in 1st person. When she switches in various chapters the point of view switches, too.

Ms.Jance should have left the spark near the end of the book, it is not appropriate for either main characters.
