The heroine is three dimensional, and the plot is good. The love story part felt sketchy and uninvolving. This was my first taste of the series, and I enjoyed it enough to make me interested in reading more.
this is the 6th book in the Joanna Brady Mystery series. very exciting!
Sheriff Joanna Brady deals with high-powered weapons as her "love life" with Butch heats up. I really enjoyed this book.
I enjoyed this mystery immensely. It is full of quick action, with many murder cases coming in on top of each other--all for Cochise County in Arizona in the hottest time of the summer. The County's Medical Examiner is away on his honeymoon, causing Sherriff Joanna Brady no option but to work with the M. E. from the next county over. They get along like oil and water, but since they must work together, they finally come to a workable truce. This is a case that has the Sheriff and all her Deputies, plus the M E running full out for the week trying to apprehend the killer before he does more damage than he already has. There are also personal matters pressing in on Joanna during the whole week that she has to deal with. All in all, this is an action filled fast read. I gave it a 5 star rating.
JA Jance continues with the Joanna Brady mystery series. I enjoy this series as it takes place in my home state of Arizona and many familiar places are mentioned. Joanna Brady is coming along as a great character in this series.
Great book, one of the best I've read in the Joanna Brady series.
Another in the Joanna Brady series. This is a well-wrought story, with interesting characters, a satisfying investigation that reveals the crime little by little. Read it.
You don't know until the end who did it. It's a good thriller laced with lots of Joanna Brady's continuing personal growth & life.
I love the entire series and this one did not disappoint. Lots of surprises and action. Joanna Brady juggles family and job with all the impossibilities any single parent finds yet remains cool in the face of murder and mayhem. Good book.
Sheriff Joanna Brady,has various dealing with solving crimes and murders in Cochise County, AZ.
Sheriff Joanna Brady is the law in Cochise County, and she will never allow her personal trials to interfere with the job she was elected to do especially now that death has invaded Bisbee,Arizona and has shattered the small desert town's fragile peace.
I enjoyed this book from beginning to end!
I like all of the Sheriff Brady series, they just keep getting better and better, at least for me. Enjoy!!!
I am familiar with the Southwest, Arizona in particular, so the settings rang true to me. The mystery was relieved by some occasional romance, which was a good thing.
The *only* thing I don't understand is why Sheriff Brady works in the field in a skirt and heels! No woman I know who needed to be on hands and knees looking for things like evidence would do that! At the Bird Farm, when a woman knew she had to go out to the shop, and especially if she knew she would be climbing stairs into a fuselage, she made certain to wear slacks!
Excellent book with a great ending.
I enjoyed this book very much and can not wait to read more a Joanna Brady's next mystery case.

At worst, a maniacal serial killer has come to feed on the unsuspecting community.
