Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance's acclaimed sheriff Joanna Brady returns in a twisting mystery set against the beauty and isolation of the Arizona desert.

When Joanna Brady's daughter, Jenny, stumbles across the body of her high-school principal, Debra Highsmith, in the desert, the search for justice leads straight to her own door. Now Joanna is forced to face the possibility that her beloved daughter may be less than perfect — especially when a photo from the crime scene ends up on Facebook. A photo only one person close to the crime scene could have taken.

Navigating her way through the unfamiliar world of social media, Joanna discovers shocking — and incriminating — information. She also discovers that the quiet, upstanding principal had a hidden past, full of mysterious secrets. As the seasoned sheriff juggles professional constraints and personal demands, she finds herself walking a fine line between justice and family that has never been so blurred.

Synopsis:

The New York Times bestselling master of mystery and suspense, J.A. Jance — whom the Chattanooga Times ranks “among the best, if not the best” — brings back her enormously popular series protagonist, Cochise County Sheriff Joanna Brady.

With Judgment Call, Jance achieves a new high in crime fiction, as Brady wrestles with her conflicting roles of law officer and mother when her daughter discovers the murdered body of the local high school principal, and the ensuing investigation reveals secrets no parent wants to hear. At once a breathtaking recreation of the rugged landscape of the American Southwest, a moving story of a mothers concerns for her endangered child, and thrilling masterwork of brutal crime and expert detection, Judgment Call is prime J.A. Jance, a treat for anyone who loves a good cop story wrapped around a superior family drama.
