    Recommend, a good read with a good lesson that applies to all people

    Tombstone Courage: the title comes from Chapter 10 of the book “…Officer Down, Code Three” by Pierce R. Brooks. In Jance’s book, the DEA Agent Adam York—introduced in the first book of the series—gives newly elected Sheriff Brady a copy of Brooks’ book. His instructions to Sheriff Brady are “I want you to sit down and read the whole thing from cover to cover. It’s important.” Brady is grateful for the book (A Police Officer’s Safety Book) but just does not “have” the time to read it. She puts herself and others into danger because the words of the book are not in her mind. Unarmed with Police Knowledge, Sheriff Brady commits the syndrome, “Tombstone Courage” at the cost of two lives. Sheriff Brady reads the book while she is in the hospital recovering from injuries suffered while exercising “Tombstone Courage.”

    Very good read.

    In the continuing Joanna Brady saga by J.A. Jance, Tombstone Courage doesn't disappoint. I enjoyed this story and following the plot. It has good characters and a good storyline. I will read more of this series.

    Another page turner

    I am now on the path of aquiring all of J.A. Jance's novels. Her writing style just drew me in with complex characters,plot levels,and painting mental images of Bisbee and surrounding areas.

    The plotlines in 'Tombstone Courage' are laid out in twisting paths. Layers of characters intertwined with the plot. I stayed up too late reading because I just had to find out who had done what.

    The character of Sheriff Joanna Brady keeps learning her job, deals with the stresses, and faces whatever comes. This sometimes puts the character in danger,but she handles it in a very human fashion. Joanna becomes real because of her very human reactions to situations.

    J.A. Jance has written characters who live and breathe in your mind as you read along. You find yourself being there in Bisbee, feeling the desert wind, seeing what the characters see.

    I'm looking forward to finishing all the Sheriff Brady books and moving on to the rest of J.A. Jance's works. Keep up the good work, you've got another loyal reader.

    not a letdown

    not a let down from the first at all. great setting, good plot, even if confusing at times. a little slow at times, but easy to look past. i like reading these books cuz the author is so good at giving you tons of loose ends then tying them up very quickly at the end. its great
