As if Joanna Brady doesn’t have enough to keep her occupied, she’s expecting a baby girl in December and, having just solved the murder of her mother and stepfather, she is in the midst of planning their funerals, when two murder cases crop up to add to her burden. And she is just beginning to focus on her re-election campaign for Sheriff.
The first case arises when two female bodies are discovered, one atop the other, at the base of Geronimo, a popular hill frequently climbed by the youth of Bixby, AZ. This is the far more interesting case, involving a joint investigation with a nearby police department, headed by Brady’s former deputy. It turns out to be a case of double murder. The second case involves the murder of a man by his wife, who hit him over the head with a golf club.
This novel is quite a story, and is filled with plenty of action as the plot unfolds. To this reader, too often the author relies on clichés to describe a thought or event. But she can be forgiven because the rest is so well-written. The insight into Joanna Brady’s mind and personality, especially as it relates to her relationship with her mother, as well as her motivations and actions, are truly deep and penetrating, and the novel is recommended.
