When a pair of star-crossed lovers arrange to meet in Arizona's fabled Skeleton Canyon, they set in motion a chain of deadly events. Summoned to investigate, Sheriff Joanna Brady finds herself faced with echoes of Tombstone's infamous Clayton gang while dealing with an unfolding grisly family tragedy in which murder is only the most obvious crime committed. Under the unforgiving Arizona sun, as an evidence-destroying thunderstorm stalks the barren desert canyons, time is running out and Joanna must finally prove she's got what it takes no matter the cost. Because in the desert, a gunshot may not make a sound if there's no one else around to hear it. . .

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 BookcassetteŽ 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.
