Publisher's Summary

When Joanna Brady's daughter, Jenny, stumbles across the body of her high school principal, Debra Highsmith, in the desert, the Cochise County sheriff's personal and professional worlds collide. Though she's tried to protect her children from the dangers of the grown-up world, the search for justice leads straight to her own door and forces her to face the possibility that her beloved daughter may be less perfect than she seems.

Yet the deeper Joanna digs, the more complications she uncovers. It seems the quiet, upstanding principal had a hidden past, full of mysterious secrets she'd successfully kept buried for years. As the seasoned sheriff juggles professional constraints and personal demands, she finds herself walking a fine line between justice and family that has never been so blurred.

Bad narator

What made the experience of listening to Judgment Call the most enjoyable?

Good story.

What didn’t you like about Hillary Huber’s performance?

Her voice seemed too 'cigarette and whiskey'.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, the voice was distracting to me.

Any additional comments?

I love all of J A Jance, but will watch who the narrators are in the future!

You Gotta Wait for It...

If you think this will be a book that enthralls you from the beginning...oops, not so much. Eventually all is well as the story builds and it all makes sense. Perhaps it is the teenage connection that makes me hesitant. I has been a while since I had teenagers so I didn't want to think about them again. Joanna is her usual tough self and everything is wrapped up in a neat bundle. So all is well that ends well, just not so exciting getting there.
