Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read This author writes the best mystery novels. Love all her series.
Date published: 2014-07-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Judgement Call A formula written book with one major crime leading to other long held secrets in a relatively small town. A quick read entertaining as it concisely rambled through the major recurring characters of a Jance novel. Most foreshadowing left the reader with little mystery but eager to prove one's hunches true. Jance is at the top of authors who provide books that kill a few hours without requiring much cerebral work.
Date published: 2014-05-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Judgement Call Jance draws you into the story and keeps you interested throughout the book as always.

From the Jacket

New York Times bestselling authorJ.A. Jance's acclaimed sheriff Joanna Bradyreturns in a twisting mystery set against the beauty and isolation of the Arizona desert.

When Joanna Brady's daughter, Jenny, stumbles across the body of her high-school principal, Debra Highsmith, in the desert, the search for justice leads straight to her own door. Now Joanna is forced to face the possibility that her beloved daughter may be less than perfect—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.

Navigating her way through the unfamiliar world of social media, Joanna discovers shocking—and incriminating—information. She also discovers that the quiet, upstanding principal had a hidden past, full of mysterious secrets. As the seasoned sheriff juggles professional constraints and personal demands, she finds herself walking a fine line between justice and family that has never been so blurred.
