9780061998959: Skeleton Canyon (Joanna Brady Mysteries)

A chilling story of deadly desire and cold murder from New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance

A pretty, popular teenager never returned from her secret tryst in Skeleton Canyon. Perhaps it was youthful rage or savage passion that ripped the life from a child of privilege and abandoned her broken body to the cold Arizona night. Or maybe she stumbled onto something terrible, something too dangerous to know. Now dark secrets about a future hideously destroyed are pulling Sheriff Joanna Brady of Cochise County into a lethal nest of lies and greed, hidden in a desolate corner of the Southwestern Desert—where the next blood that feeds the parched earth could be her own.

Review:

Once again, relationships between mothers and daughters shape and give humanity to an exciting mystery in J.A. Jance's excellent series about Joanna Brady, the sheriff of Bisbee, Arizona. Bree O'Brien, high school valedictorian and cheerleader, has upset her wealthy parents by taking up with Ignacio Ybarra, a hardworking Hispanic football star. The last words found in Bree's journal after she is discovered murdered in Skeleton Canyon while waiting for Ignacio are "My Mother is a liar." Sheriff Brady, torn between the temporary loss of her own daughter (to camp) and strange behavior by her demanding mother, looks for a link between Bree's death and suspicious activities at the O'Brien home near the Mexican border. As always, the desert environment--in this case, the dangers of fast floods--plays a major part in the story. Other Brady books include Desert Heat, Tombstone Courage, Shoot Don't Shoot, and Dead to Rights.

From the Inside Flap:

The Bookcassette® format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.
