    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Arizona sheriff Joanna Brady returns in this outstanding new mystery set in the beautiful desert country of the Southwest. With a baby on the way, sudden deaths in the family from which to recover, a re-election campaign looming, and a daughter heading off for college, Cochise County Sheriff Joanna Brady has her hands full when a puzzling new case hits her department, demanding every resource she has at her disposal. Two women have fallen to their deaths from a small nearby peak, referred to by Bisbee locals as Geronimo. What's the connection between these two women? Is this a case of murder/suicide or is it a double homicide? And if someone else is responsible, is it possible that the perpetrator may, even now, be on the hunt for another victim?"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2016 September #1

In her eighteenth adventure, Cochise County Sheriff Joanna Brady investigates the deaths of two women who fell from an Arizona peak known as Geronimo. An autopsy reveals they were dead before they fell. One of the women was a PhD candidate in microbiology who had a camp set up nearby. The other was a local high-school teacher and preacher's wife. In the midst of planning her mother's and stepfather's funerals, getting her daughter off to college, and being pregnant, Brady must also make room dealing with an eager FBI agent and a group of angry parents who don't want their high-schoolers interrogated. When Brady discovers that one of the victims was not the noble educator she appeared to be, the suspect list gets both longer and alarmingly familiar. Series fans will be anxious to see how Brady is holding up and delighted that her support system remains strong. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Never mind that she's pregnant, up for reelection, and coping with the murder of her mother and stepfather. Cochise County, AZ, sheriff Joanna Brady must understand what happened to two women who have plunged from a nearby peak known to the locals as Geronimo. A suicide and a murder? Or a double murder, with more victims looming? In July, the publisher will release Random Acts, an e-original novella related to this work. With a 250,000-copy first printing.

In bestseller Jance's engrossing 17th novel featuring Cochise County, Ariz., sheriff Joanna Brady (after 2014's Remains of Innocence), the pregnant Joanna, who's facing an election campaign and has just lost her mother and stepfather in a road accident, must also cope with the discovery of two women's bodies at the base of a peak the locals refer to as Geronimo. The victims have no apparent connection to each other and either jumped or were pushed to their deaths. One is immediately identified as Desirée Wilburton, a graduate student who was studying cacti in the area; the other turns out to be teacher Susan Marie Nelson, the wife of a preacher, Drexel Nelson, who displays no grief when Joanna tells him the news of Susan's death. The pressure on Joanna increases when a domestic assault becomes a murder, and a relentless reporter, Mariss Shackleford, needles local officials, especially Joanna, about the unsolved crimes. The action races to a dramatic confrontation between Joanna and the killer, who has been hiding in plain sight. Agent: Alice Volpe, Northwest Literary Agency. (Sept.)
