"Arizona sheriff Joanna Brady returns in this outstanding new mystery set in the beautiful desert country of the Southwest. With a baby on the way, sudden deaths in the family from which to recover, a re-election campaign looming, and a daughter heading off for college, Cochise County Sheriff Joanna Brady has her hands full when a puzzling new case hits her department, demanding every resource she has at her disposal. Two women have fallen to their deaths from a small nearby peak, referred to by Bisbee locals as Geronimo. What's the connection between these two women? Is this a case of murder/suicide or is it a double homicide? And if someone else is responsible, is it possible that the perpetrator may, even now, be on the hunt for another victim?"--

I started reading J. A. Jance about a year ago and have read many of her books in the different series. I have enjoyed everyone of them and this book was no exception. It was a great read and I didn't see the end coming. I would recommend reading this book.

This book had what appeared to be one significant flaw and the entire ending was based on it. Cars used by police officers normally do NOT have an interior dome light that comes on when a door is opened.
I also thought Sheriff Brady's activity level for someone supposed so pregnant was absurd--hiking up and down a steep bluff for example.
Decent story but some rewriting would greatly improve the realism.

I've read all the Joanna Brady books and recommend reading them in order. In this one especially, I loved sharing Joanna's struggles (and successes) as sheriff managing several homicides, as daughter preparing for a funeral, and as a mother both sending a daughter off to college and about to birth another.

good plot twists and turns until the end. however, why is Sheriff Brady portrayed as a mother and soon-again-to-be mother who doesn't seem to "get" that being with her kids as well as the job is a privilege, responsibility and a joy? still would recommend the book
