Book Overview
Jance starts her books fast . . . and keeps things moving with cinematic panache. -- Los Angeles Times A puzzling new case has just hit Sheriff Joanna Brady's department, demanding every resource she has at her disposal--as well as help from neighboring law enforcement agencies and the Feds. The bodies of two women have been found at the base of a nearby peak, known to Bisbee locals as Geronimo. Is this a terrible accident, a case of murder/suicide, or a double homicide? The investigation takes a puzzling twist when Joanna discovers that one victim was a local teacher and minister's wife, while the other was a brilliant microbiologist working toward her Ph.D.--two vastly different women with seemingly no connections to link them. As Joanna and her team methodically hunt down answers, they begin to uncover a knotty web of sordid secrets and evil lies--clues that take the valiant sheriff down a winding and dangerous road that leads shockingly close to home . . . and close to a desperate and determined killer. Jance skillfully avoids the predictable. -- South Florida Sun Sentinel
