Synopsis

Sheriff Joanna Brady is the law in Cochise County, and she will never allow her personal trials to interfere with the job she was elected to do—especially now that death has invaded Bisbee, Arizona, and has shattered the small desert town's fragile peace.

A gun dealer has died violently, and his stock of high-powered weapons has been cleaned out. Suspicion falls upon rancher Alton Hosfield, an armed separatist at war with the federal government and the local law—with everyone, in fact, whom he perceives as a threat to his independent way of life.

Joanna Brady suspects the solution is not so cut-and-dried—especially when the cold-blooded slaying is followed by a series of others, equally horrific and perplexing. At best, an incendiary "Ruby Ridge" situation is brewing. At worst, a maniacal serial killer has come to feed on her unsuspecting community. But Joanna's preoccupation with bringing a murderer to justice could take a terrible toll on her private life . . . and unravel threads of family, love, and responsibility that might never again be retied.

Too Much Detail
November 29th, 2015
This is a good solid mystery with believable characters, well developed plot line, and plenty of suspense. However, for me there is one aspect of the author’s writing style that is the deal breaker and will keep me from reading any more of her books. Her effort to provide the rich detail of the characters and scenes of her book is over done. Instead of making me feel as though I am a fly on the wall vicariously part of the characters and story I feel as though I’m struggling through deep snow drifts. Much of her detail is good and does provide the desired effect, but then she continues with finer detail that serves no real purpose. It’s fine to be told that at a Mexican restaurant the guacamole is freshly made at the table, but describing how each ingredient is prepared and included is over the top. I find that the continued use of these minutia and irrelevant details fatally disrupts the flow of the plot.
