The Walker family survived the atrocities perpetrated by a serial killer and his crazed acolyte in both Hour of the Hunter and Kiss of the Bees. But can they escape the vengeance of a new killer or killers whose sights have been set on their precious daughter, Lani? Young girls are being spirited away from an orphanage deep in Colonial Mexico -- told they're traveling to a loving adoptive family in southern Arizona, their hopes are high. But the fate that waits for them is truly horrifying: when death comes, it will be a blessing....
Former Sheriff Brandon Walker is living the life of a reluctant retiree. Playing golf while his wife, Diana Ladd, continues to write her bestselling tales of true crime, he desperately misses the action and sense of usefulness from days gone by. When he’s invited to join the Last Chance Club to review and attempt to solve long-cold cases, he little imagines the first case to cross his path will be one he may have botched back when he was sheriff. And when the case from all those decades past becomes entangled with a current murder, it seems a serial killer with a very long and shocking track record may be back in business....

Looking for some purpose in his retirement, former Sheriff Brandon Walker becomes a member of The Last Chance Club (TLC). TLC investigates cold cases, and Brandon's first case is the unsolved death of an aging Native American woman's daughter thirty years earlier. He soon believes his case may be the first murder by a serial killer who is still in business. Tim Jerome's deep, gravelly voice is well suited to J.A. Jance's disturbing mystery. His measured tone and pacing adroitly capture the law enforcement characters, the cold-blooded murderers, and the several Native Americans. Jance's story may be over the top, but Jerome's reading is down-to-earth. A.B. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
