Another excellent murder mystery from J.A. Jance. I enjoyed having Beaumont and Brady in the same story. The only sour note was at the end when the two have a brief sexual spark fly between them. It was totally unbelievable and completely unnecessary. Otherwise, a good read.

I'm pretty well used to that by now. I was impressed with Jance's plotting, her descriptions and her characters. She seems to be a fine writer and I have no doubt that I would rate the book higher if I ever force myself to finish it. Unfortunately, my "whine" tolerance factor is set very low and everyone in her cast -- aside from two very minor characters -- enjoys large doses of whine with their cheese. I held on through chapter four but finally bailed when I realized the situation was not getting any better; indeed, it just deteriorated that much faster. Good plot, good premise and well-written characters, just not anyone I'd tolerate hanging around with unless I were being paid for the trouble.

This book got me back into reading. I haven't sat down and read a book in years. This book was so great that I couldn't put it down. I had to read it everynight and missed by favorite shows on TV just to finish it. I stayed up late nights because I couldn't put it down. I encourage everyone to read this.
Thanks J.A. Jance for writing such a great book.

I really had a fun time with this novel. I found the crime believable (frighteningly so), the pacing brisk but not rushed, and the interaction between Brady and Beaumont realistic. I was startled by their "moment" together, but have come to the conclusion that it was more out of character for Beaumont to reject it than for Brady to instigate it (she wasn't connecting well with Butch and found herself with a man she has expended a lot of emotional energy against; a man who, like her, had lost a spouse; a man who understood and appreciated her law-enforcement skills - add to that the fact she had been put through the wringer by Ken Junior and Marliss Shackleford, lost Sadie, and hadn't been eating properly and you've got a recipe for disaster).
SPOILER WARNING:
I was less thrilled with the behavior of the murderer in his attempt to flee justice. If the APB goes out for a man with gray hair and a long ponytail ... well that's nothing that a pair of scissors and a bottle of Grecian Formula can't fix. Why go to all the trouble he did when much simpler solutions existed. A few threads were left hanging at the end of the book, too: What did Ernie find at the post office, who saw the "moment" and what did they do about it, did Naomi Pepper grow a pair or is her mom really going to come between her and Beau - inquiring minds want to know.
Ultimately, this is a story of survivors. Sure, not everyone survives (it's not much of a murder mystery if everyone makes it through okay), but Jance focuses more attention on those that do than she has recently. Cornelia Lester's story is particularly tragic, Serenity Granger's almost humorous.

I like the Joanna Brady novels, but don't care as much for the Beaumont series. But J. A. Jance weaves them together very well in the proper setting - the desert of course. A member of the witness protection program is relocated to Arizona, only to be found by thugs from her former life, and murdered. Beaumont travels from Seattle to help Sheriff Brady solve the murder, and further crimes. The story was very interesting, but I didn't like the way Joanna fell a victim to temptation near the end of the book. This was out of character for her. Please don't let this happen again Ms Jance!

J P Beaumont goes to the Southwest to help Sheriff Joanna Brady solve the murder of an artist. In the process he learns more painful truths about his late wife Anne. Jance's two detectives work well together although both have different styles. This book was somewhat contrived, and hopefully th author will get back to writing about J P Beaumont and his new job soon. Personally, I prefer the Beaumont series.

Sorry, but this one is a real stinker. The two detectives do little detecting but a lot of complaining about each other, until magically they are attracted to each other. Don't buy it. Sheriff Brady is in a bad mood from the first page, and doesn't solve any of her problems throughout the book. Beaumont does little more than complain about his rental car. Even the main criminal realizes the two detectives are stumbling around behind him so he obliges the story and conveniently kills himself by falling off a horse.

I am a fan of Jance and have read all of her books for both the Brady and Beaumont series. This just didn't do it for me. I thought it was slow and I only continued to read out of loyalty. I especially didn't like the "little moment" between Joanna and Beau at the end. I thought it was totally unnecessary. I didn't enjoy how Joanna, who I always thought exhibited great integrity, treated Butch like a door mat. Where was her loyalty? I don't believe Jance stayed true to Joanna's character.
