Continues the story of Sheriff Brandon Walker and Diana Ladd. It’s many years later and Walker and Ladd are married. Yet out of prison Andrew Carlisle reaches out to spread his evil intent over the family. Set in Pima County Arizona Indian lore plays a significant part in the story.

It’s a tight and taut story well told from several points of view.

If you’re a lover of mystery and haven’t read J.A.Jance then give her a try. She tells good stories with characters you love or hate. They are set in two different parts of the country Arizona and Washington State. If you like being involved in place hers are great. Also she gives us a look at Indian Lore.

You’ll wonder about Fat Crack. Meet Forever Spinning and be taken with how these characters imbue the stories with a special touch.

Jance creates strong male characters, but it is her smart,  intense and powerful women characters which stand out.
