Publisher Comments:

Top ten New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance brings us another mesmerizing thriller featuring Arizona Sheriff Joanna Brady as she searches for the brutal killer of a young girl.

Brianna "Bree" O′Brien never returned from Skeleton Canyon. Someone brutally murdered the pretty, popular teenager who had stolen away under cover of darkness to rendezvous with her boyfriend. Perhaps youthful rage, jealousy and savage passion cost young Bree her life. Or maybe she stumbled onto something too dangerous to know. Sheriff Joanna Brady of Cochise County knows only too well the pain of losing a loved one to violence. But she is disturbed by the O′Brien′s insistence that Bree′s boyfriend is responsible for their daughter′s slaying. Joanna senses there are words not being spoken, and dark mysteries locked behind doors of the sprawling O′Brien family compound. But it is the strange disappearance of a good friend that is pulling Sheriff Brady ever closer to the lethal nest of lies, greed and secrets hiding in a desolate corner of the Arizona desert - where the next blood that feeds the parched, cracked earth could be her own.

Synopsis:

Brianna "Bree" O'Brien went to Skeleton Canyon for a romantic tryst with her boyfriend, Ignacio Ybarra--a rendezvous she never lived to experience. Sheriff Joanna Brady's investigation into the cruel death of the popular teenager is leading her from the isolated desert canyon into the luxurious O'Brien family compound--and into a complex web of crime, hatred, and deception that could have devastating and deadly consequences.
