Sheriff Joanna Brady's best intentions to stay on maternity leave take a hit when a serial homicide case rocks Cochise County, dragging her into a far-reaching investigation to bring down a relentless killer in this chilling tale of suspense from New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance.

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.

Filled with the beloved characters, small town charm, vivid history, intriguing mystery, and the scenic Arizona desert backdrop that have made the Joanna Brady series perennial bestsellers, this latest entry featuring the popular sheriff is sure to please J. A. Jance's legion of fans.

Booklist Review: "On the night she's waiting for her reelection returns, Cochise County Sheriff Joanna Brady gives birth to her daughter, Sage, three weeks earlier than expected. With Brady suddenly on maternity leave, Acting Sheriff Tom Hadlock soon has his hands full after a remote desert area, in which skeletal remains are found, is determined to be the dumping ground for a serial killer. While Brady's husband, author Butch Dixon, is on a book tour, Brady eases back into work before her leave ends, given the crimes at hand and the possibility of more to come. Intermittent chapters detail a man calling himself the Boss, who hunts for and imprisons young women, whom he then chains in a basement dungeon and feeds only dog kibble, abusing his captives at will. This twentieth entry in the Joanna Brady series is another page-turner, advancing the private life of the protagonist while detailing the grisly crimes. And there's a recipe for Joanna's much-lauded meat loaf.--Michele Leber Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A serial killer investigation disrupts Joanna Brady's maternity leave in bestseller Jance's exciting 18th novel featuring the Cochise County, Ariz., sheriff (after 2016's Downfall). Acting sheriff Tom Hadlock is on duty when June Carver brings in her son, Jack, with a skull that the high school senior found in the remote San Bernardino Valley. Evidence at the scene suggests that a serial killer has been using it as a dump site. Readers know from the first chapter that a man known only as the Boss has been keeping his victims prisoner, torturing them, and disposing of their bodies in the desert. Hadlock puts every available officer on the case, while Joanna offers advice and secures an FBI profiler willing to help. Jance ratchets up the tension by switching between the Boss's depredations and the police's efforts to identify him and rescue his prisoners. The birth of Joanna's daughter, Sage, and other developments in her personal life will enthrall established fans. This long-running series shows no signs of losing steam.
