Reviews

Bestseller Jance brings together her two most popular characters, Seattle homicide investigator J.P. Beaumont and Cochise County, Ariz., sheriff Joanna Brady, for a gripping tale that's easily one of her best. While their first dual outing, 2002's Partner in Crime, stagnated with cliched professional and sexual tension, this time the combination excels with a focus on parallel investigations that naturally-and chillingly-intersect. In Seattle, Beaumont looks into the burned bodies of six unidentified women. In Arizona, Brady handles the murder of an ATV park caretaker. Beaumont and Brady pool their information when a murdered woman links back to the missing sister of Jaime Carbajal, one of Brady's detectives. While Brady stays in Arizona, Carbajal's arrival in Washington sets off a chain of events with fatal consequences. Brady's side investigation of a substandard nursing home adds punch. 10-city author tour. (Aug.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Jance (Partner in Crime) brings together two long-running series protagonists, Sheriff Joanna Brady and Detective J.P. Beaumont, to uncover the mysterious deaths of a young woman, found charred and mutilated in the Cascade Mountains, and a man crushed to death by an all-terrain vehicle in the Arizona sand dunes. What could be a thrilling novel of connecting-the-dots between these two cases instead strolls along at the pace of a family reunion. Verdict Despite addressing complex themes of immigration, drug running, and alternative lifestyles, Jance doesn't bring her usual sense of urgency to this title. Still, series readers will snap this up and be glad for the characters' updates. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 4/15/09.]-Teresa L. Jacobsen, Solano Cty.
