Arizona sheriff Joanna Brady confronts two complex cases in this dazzling novel of suspense from New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance
Back at home, Sheriff Joanna Brady has a newborn, a teenage daughter, a writer husband, and a difficult mother to deal with. But in the field, it turns out that she has much more. A rainstorm sweeping across the desert has revealed gruesome evidence: two trash bags stuffed with human remains.
In a separate case, an elderly couple whose car has gone off the side of a mountain leaves behind a note stating that they intended to take their lives. Yet when a contradictory autopsy report surfaces, Joanna knows that this is more than just a suicide pact. And she will go all out to find the truth--no matter where it leads.
“Jance beautifully evokes the desert and towns of her beloved southwest as well as the strong individuals who live there.”
