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.

Review by Library Journal (2001-05-01)

Arizona sheriff Joanna Brady's wedding plans are disrupted by the death of a neighbor who leaves his ranch to her, much to his daughter's chagrin, and by the murder of Sandra Ridder, a recently paroled convict. Sandra, once a militant Native American college student, was convicted of murdering her husband, and now her 15-year-old daughter, Lucy, runs away to evade her mother's killer. The focus on Lucy's troubled life and her relationship with Big Red, a red-tailed hawk, makes Jance's tale often seem more like a young adult novel than a traditional mystery.

Though Jance's depiction of the physical landscape is, as usual, fascinating, she devotes too much time to Joanna's mundane personal life. With these flaws, this novel could still have been somewhat engaging if not for Stephanie Brush's halting, grating, amateurish reading. Not recommended. Michael Adams, CUNY Graduate Ctr.
