This time Sheriff Joanna Brady may expect to see her maternity leave through to completion, but the world has other plans when a serial homicide case surfaces in her beloved Cochise County. Rather than staying home with her newborn and losing herself in the cold cases to be found in her father's long unread diaries, Joanna instead finds herself overseeing a complex investigation involving multiple jurisdictions.

The prologue provides the perfect synapses of the life of Joanna Brady. For those new to the series, the background presented catches you up. For those who are long-time fans (this is book # 18) it highlights the ups and downs of Joanna's life both personally & professionally leaving you cheering her on as Eleanor Sage Dixon arrives on election night.

Joanna is on maternity leave and Butch is on a book tour when a dump site of bones and a recently deceased body is found. Being home with her children gives Joanna a chance to read old journals and keep up with the laundry. Deputy Chief Tom Hadlock needs Joanna's help.

The plot is darker than previous crimes when "the Boss" is keeping women captive in his basement dungeon.

This book even includes a recipe for Sunday Meatloaf.

You can read this as a stand alone but plan to go back and read the previous books to get the most pleasure our of the characters.

As with other comments, this was a fast-paced and exciting story - trying to apprehend a serial killer for his horrific deeds. Suspenseful and a true page-turner

I have really enjoyed reading J.A. Jance's series featuring Sheriff Joanna Brady. Like some of the other commenters, I agree, this is one of the best in the series! Really good.

Borrowed from my daughter and couldn't put it down. It now goes on my completed list. Jean G. Smith

I enjoyed this book very much. The series is well written and this is one of the best in the series. It is extremely well developed and I also enjoy the details about the sheriff's family side as well as her professional side. There are also "extras" thrown in, including information on her father, a previous sheriff, and his diaries.

I love and enjoy all of JA Jance books. This book was by far my most favourite! It was gripping right from the first page. I generally enjoy a novel over a 2 week period, I couldn’t put this book down. I read it twice in less than a week.

Another pretty good book in JA Jance's Joanna Brady series. Mostly dealing with the central character's maternity leave, she also has to delegate authority while a major crime blows up in her county. All in all, another enjoyable Brady mystery.
