Publisher's Summary

For Sheriff Joanna Brady and her 12-year-old daughter Jenny, an innocent Girl Scout campout turns into a lethal game when Jenny and her tentmate, Dora Matthews, discover a murdered Phoenix woman.

Back at home, Joanna's main concern is helping her daughter recover from this terrible trauma, even as she attends to the demands of a new marriage and a possible reelection campaign. But then Dora turns up dead, and instantly Joanna's concern turns to terror. For if the killer is murdering potential witnesses, Sheriff Brady's beloved daughter may be next.

What the Critics Say

"Jance's sense of place remains strong, whether here in the beautifully rendered rural Arizona setting or in the rainy Seattle of her J.P. Beaumont mysteries." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Enjoyable"

    I have now read several of the Joanna Brady series, and the author continues to evolve the character nicely. I especially enjoyed the two story-lines and how she wove them together. A good story, with excellent narration and a thoroughly believable working woman main character make this a great listen.

    I'm a 54 year old mail carrier. I listen to books around 6 hours a day. Listening to just about any fiction genre. Just starting to review.

    "Book brought to low rating due to being abridged"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    There really isn't any book that can survive the cuts made by being abridged, and this is no exception. One whole storyline was left unresolved. Chopping up the story left me frustrated and feeling that I'm missing key points.


    What could J.A. Jance have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Bitch slap whoever decided that marketing only a abridged version. PLEASE


    What about Debra Monk’s performance did you like?

    Much improved over the narration in the previous few books.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not as the closest movie theater is 2 hours away. I save those trips for movies with big special effects. But I would rent or buy the DVD.


    Any additional comments?

    Abridgement = BAD If I want a abridged story I'll buy a Readers Digest.
