Partner in Crime

Rochelle Baxter was an artist recently arrived from Washington State, cruelly cut down in the early stages of a promising career. Now all that remains of her lies on a cold slab in the Cochise County morgue, and Sheriff Joanna Brady knows that murder has once again infected her small desert community. But there is more to this homicide than initially meets the eye: the victim died while under government protection.

Publisher's Summary

Rochelle Baxter was an artist recently arrived from Washington State, cruelly cut down in the early stages of a promising career. Now all that remains of her lies on a cold slab in the Cochise County morgue, and Sheriff Joanna Brady knows that murder has once again infected her small desert community. But there is more to this homicide than initially meets the eye: the victim died while under government protection.

Instructed to swallow her indignation, Joanna awaits the arrival of the newest member of the state's Special Homicide Investigation team, a man named J. P. Beaumont. Sheriff Brady resents his intrusion and cannot help but make her feelings known.

But the road they are forced to travel together takes some unexpected turns, running them headfirst into the impenetrable stone walls of a conspiracy of silence. Brady and Beaumont's hunt is disturbing a very deadly nest of rattlers, and suddenly trust is the only option they have.

    "Changing narrators at book #16 is a bad idea"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    the narrators. For 16 books Gene Engene has been the narrator and has developed the character of JP exceptionally. His skills make him one of my favorite narrators.

    I'm sure Debra and Cotter are fine narrators but it was very difficult to listen to them read this book - especially Cotter since his voice is 180 degrees different from Gene's


    How could the performance have been better?

    Only one narrator. I'm not a fan of multiple narrators. This sounds like old time radio acting out a story.


    Did Partner in Crime inspire you to do anything?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    In an effort to be redundant - note to publishers - stick with what is great.

    "Like JA Jance and JP Beaumont but not the narrator"

    After Gene Engene, no one can quite do JP Beaumont justice. The narrator makes the book.
