Baker & Taylor
Coping with the impending arrival of her second child, Sheriff Joanna Brady is suddenly confronted with the killing of an ex-con, who had served twenty years in prison for the killing of his pregnant wife, and a vicious attack on one of her female officers who had been on an unauthorized stakeout. (Mystery & Detective)


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 short-age, the last things Joanna needs are 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 twenty 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 and left for dead 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. Strapping on a bulletproof vest, she'll risk everything to see that justice is done.

I liked this book by Jance. I have found that her books tend to be hit-and-miss but this one was fun, an easy read, and fast-paced

Good story as always.

Jance always is a good read. Almost unbelievable that Sherrif Brady is involved in so much the week before the baby is born but it makes for a good story.
