Overview

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?

In bestseller Jance’s engrossing 17th novel featuring Cochise County, Ariz., sheriff Joanna Brady (after 2014’s Remains of Innocence), the pregnant Joanna, who’s facing an election campaign and has just lost her mother and stepfather in a road accident, must also cope with the discovery of two women’s bodies at the base of a peak the locals refer to as Geronimo. The victims have no apparent connection to each other and either jumped or were pushed to their deaths. One is immediately identified as Desirée Wilburton, a graduate student who was studying cacti in the area; the other turns out to be teacher Susan Marie Nelson, the wife of a preacher, Drexel Nelson, who displays no grief when Joanna tells him the news of Susan’s death. The pressure on Joanna increases when a domestic assault becomes a murder, and a relentless reporter, Mariss Shackleford, needles local officials, especially Joanna, about the unsolved crimes. The action races to a dramatic confrontation between Joanna and the killer, who has been hiding in plain sight. Agent: Alice Volpe, Northwest Literary Agency. (Sept.)
