A spellbinding story of life and death, rage and murder in the silent Arizona night from New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance

In the desert, a Native American woman is dead--an ex-con once jailed for the murder of her husband--and her teenage daughter has vanished into the long shadows of the night-still canyons. A dedicated law officer, Sheriff Joanna Brady of Cochise County has suffered stoically through loss and pain--yet she has never wavered in her commitment to duty and the pursuit of justice. Now, as she stands on the brink of a new life and new happiness, death is summoning her once more, calling her down a twisted trail of hatred, greed, and devastating consequence to the black heart of the Dragoon Mountains.There is no respite yet for Joanna Brady--only a terrifying excursion into a world of passion and violence, where long-buried secrets are the best reasons of all to kill . . . or to die.

In this mystery novel, Joanna Brady is the head of police in a small town in Arizona near Tucson. Half the book is about background information, usually the marital and family relationships of her main characters. This information is used as filler to solving the murder of a single mom recently released from prison. If you are interested in the character development of Jance's main character, Joanna Brady, this book might interest you; otherwise it is weak as a mystery/police procedural novel. This was my first mystery book by Jance and probably my last.
