Product Description

Review

'Jance beautifully evokes the desert and towns of her beloved southwest as well as the strong individuals who live there' Publishers Weekly --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance brings back acclaimed sheriff Joanna Brady in an exciting and twisting mystery set against the beauty and isolation of the Arizona desert

Judgment Call

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, forcing her to tread the difficult middle ground between being an officer of the law and a mother. While investigating murders has always meant discovering unpleasant facts and disquieting truths, the experienced Joanna isn't prepared for the knowledge she's about to uncover. 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 beloveddaughter may be less perfect than she seems—especially when a photo from the crime scene ends up on Facebook. A photo only one person close to the crime scene could have taken.

The gruesome picture is just the tip of the iceberg. Even a small, close-knit town like Bisbee has its secrets. Navigating her way through the unfamiliar world of social media, Joanna discovers shocking—and incriminating—information. The details build, from a hushed-up suspension, to a group of teenagers with a grudge against the late Ms. Highsmith, to a hateful video calling for the principal's death. The video evidence points to one particular privileged boy, who's already lawyered up thanks to his father, a well-to-do doctor determined to protect his son's reputation. 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—budget cuts, new team members, an arrogant coroner, a confused teenager, a precocious toddler, and a high-maintenance mother—she finds herself walking a fine line between justice and family that has never been so blurred.

I loved this story. It was another great mystery in which Joanna has to solve a murder stemming from long buried family secrets. A great mystery!

Although I enjoyed the earlier books in this series I found that this book had little to recommend it. To begin with the plot is very thin. At the midpoint the identity of the killer is clear and not too much later Joanne Brady figures it out. Everything that happens is telegraphed in advance and one would have to look pretty closely to find anything resembling at plot twist. There is little sense of place and aside for some mellowing on her mother's part and growing up by the daughter there is no character development. The thing that bothered me the most is the voice of Joanne Brady which is consistently superior with no vulnerabilityand a complete lack of humor. Since the book is written in the first person with little dialog this quickly becomes annoying.
