Juggling a family and a career is never easy—and it's becoming a real challenge for Sheriff Joanna Brady. Coping with the impending delivery of her second child as well as a staff shortage, the last things Joanna needs are two serious crimes.
First, the body of an unidentified man is found in the desert, all of his fingers savagely severed. Following the scant clues, Joanna learns that the victim was an ex-con who had served twenty years in prison after confessing to the murder of his pregnant wife. During his last days he was seen following and photographing a young woman.
Then one of Joanna's officers is brutally attacked and left for dead while on an unau-thorized stakeout. Because the officer is one of its own, the department throws its resources into finding her attacker.
But the murder haunts Joanna. Being a sher-iff is no longer an empty position she wants to hold—somehow it has become what she is. Her job is to avenge man's inhumanity toward man, and finding out who the victim was and why he is dead is what she has been summoned to do with her life. Strapping on a bulletproof vest, she'll risk everything to see that justice is done.

You can't go wrong with this latest addition to the Sheriff Joanna Brady series. Narrator Susan Ericksen's delivery is smooth as silk. Ericksen maneuvers adeptly from character to character, catching the essence of each regardless of gender. This time Brady has her hands full. She's about to deliver her second child when she's called upon to investigate the death of an ex-con whose fingerless body was discovered in the desert. At the same time, one of her female officers is brutally beaten. Brady relentlessly connects the dots that link the crime to one investigated by her late father. Ericksen's performance adds a personable dimension to Brady's character. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
