The slayings are as oppressive as the blistering heat for Sheriff Joanna Brady, who must shoulder the double burden of a brutal reelection campaign and major developments on the home front. Joanna must now deal with the terrifying reality that now threatens everyone in her jurisdiction: a serial killer is in their midst.
As personal and professional pressure mounts, Sheriff Brady must pursue a sadistic murderer into the shadows of the past to get to the roots of a monstrous obsession...and expose the permanent wounds of a crime far worse than homicide.
"A fine addition to a lively series." (Publishers Weekly) "Brady fans won't want to put this one down." (Booklist) "J.A. Jance does not disappoint her fans." (Washington Times)
The narrator demonstrated the emotions of the interesting and intriguing story. At times some of thr relationships were a little complex.
This reader is not appropriate for the joanna Brady series. Consistency in performance is recommended but if that's impossible a reader should at least be familiar with the way to pronounce proper names.
The story line was excellent. I loved the narrator. She sounded like what I expected the characters to sound like. The pace of the story was just right. I will read more from this author.
