The pressure is high for Arizona sheriff Joanna Brady in Exit Wounds, a riveting mystery where the action is as relentless as the desert heat. Combining police work, politics, and a personal life is never easy. But this time out, Sheriff Brady has her hands particularly full. She's investigating the murder of an animal hoarder and the death of her 17 dogs; trying to keep the lid on trouble at the local jail; and dealing with a deadly car crash involving undocumented aliens -- all while trying to fit everything in around the political demands of her struggling reelection campaign. On top of all that, she's coping with personal issues that she suspects will rock her family to the core.
As always, J. A. Jance does a superb job of juggling the gritty realities of police procedure and political power struggles, while portraying characters whose personal lives are as realistically complex as their jobs and the world they live in. Exit Wounds is a gripping read…and Joanna Brady is sure to face the unexpected challenges in her life head-on. Sue Stone
