Publisher's Summary

Juggling a family and a career is never easy - and it's becoming a real challenge for Sheriff Joanna Brady. Coping with the impending delivery of her second child as well as a staff shortage, the last thing Joanna needs is two serious crimes.

First, the body of an unidentified man is found in the desert, all of his fingers savagely severed. Following the scant clues, Joanna learns that the victim was an ex-con who had served 20 years in prison after confessing to the murder of his pregnant wife. During his last days he was seen following and photographing a young woman.

Then one of Joanna's officers is brutally attacked while on an unauthorized stakeout. Because the officer is one of its own, the department throws its resources into finding her attacker. But the murder haunts Joanna. Being a sheriff has become what she is, and she'll risk everything to see that justice is done.

Pronunciation

There were several pronunciation errors throughout this narrative. An example was Joanna’s father’s last name “Lathrop”. It was pronounced with a hard “a” sound, a soft “a” sound, and with an “n” “Lanthrop”. This time around the word Pasty was pronounced properly. This sounds picky, but when it is a word repeated frequently throughout the narrative it becomes annoying.

This great series deserves consistent narrator

Excellent story, well read! Definitely worth a credit.
I liked this reader so much better than CJCritt, who I’m sure is an excellent narrator but whose voice just doesn’t suit that of a young Sheriff Brady. Having said that, the odd pronunciation of Sheriff Lathrop’s name by this narrator was jarring - and it came up a lot in this particular story.
This is such a good series, it really deserves a consistent narrator, and would win a much greater audience with one who really suits the image of a young, energetic Southwestern Sheriff Brady.

Strong heroine

Suspenseful storyline, enjoyed the characters but I was disappointed in the narration. Sometimes hard to distinguish between characters talking during back and forth dialogue. Exciting story though and wondering if Sheriff Brady would have the baby in the middle of a crime scene kept me listening. I have heard this narrator many times before since I have listened to many many of the " in death " series by JD Robb so that might have been my problem not this narrator's fault.

pronunciation is everything

the reader should listen to the other books to make sure the names are properly pronounced. old school English is always best. it`s "Laythrrope" not "Latthtope", "Hymie" not "Jamie" and "Herfords", not "Heffords".

great read

I especially like the narrator. good pace and story. I listen for about 30 minutes a night before I doze off. with this book however. I found myself setting the timer for 60 minutes. the story was believable and had many twists and turns that keep the reader engaged. I have only read 2 of the books but now desire to go back and read them all and find out other cases for sherrif Brady. highly recommend. would make better movie than some at theater!

Dead Wrong

I'm sorry, but I hate it when a new narrator pronounces the protagonist's name wrong. Every time I heard it, it pulled me out of the story. I hate that!
