Publisher Comments:

Rochelle Baxter, an up-and-coming artist in Cochise County, Arizona, dies mysteriously the night before her first gallery opening gala. The fact that her death is a probable homicide isn’ t such a surprise to Sheriff Joanna Brady--she knows a murder when she sees one. What does surprise her is learning that Rochelle Baxter is actually a woman named Latisha Wall, a former Marine M.P. who was supposed to be protected under a Washington State witness protection program. The Washtington State attorney general is outraged that his star witness in a private-prison corruption scandal has been rubbed out, and he sends his newest investigator, former Seattle homicide detective, J.P. Beaumont, down to Arizona to ride herd on what the attorney general suspects will be an inadequate investigation. Joanna isn’ t happy to see Beau on her turf, and he isn’ t overjoyed at the prospect himself. But when the investigation begins to take unexpected and frightening turns, the two must put aside their differences to solve one of the most baffling cases of their careers.

The dead woman on a cold slab in the Arizona morgue was a talented artist recently arrived from the West Coast. The Washington State Attorney General's office thinks this investigation is too big for a small-town female law officer to handle, so they're sending Sheriff Joanna Brady some unwanted help — a seasoned detective named Beaumont. Sheriff Brady resents his intrusion, and Bisbee, Arizona, with its ghosts and memories, is the last place J.P. Beaumont wants to be. But the twisting desert road they must reluctantly travel together is leading them into a very deadly nest of rattlers. And if they hope to survive, suddenly trust is the only option they have left ...
