In 1959, ASU coed June Lennox travels with Sully from the Tempe, Arizona campus to Southern California for spring break. She never returns to school as she is left dead in the desert. In 2009 in Tucson, retired Pima County homicide detective Brandon Walker visits his dying pal former Pinal County detective "Geet" Farrell at the hospice; they worked a serial killer case together back in 1975. Geet got Brandon a job with TLC (The Last Chance) entity that works cold cases. Hs current case is the homicide of June Lennox. At the same time, Brandon's wife Diana Ladd Walker still struggles with "visits" from the dead in her nightmarish past. They are Andrew Carlisle who tried to rape her, her late odious first husband Garrison Ladd III who set her up to be raped, and serial killer Mitch Johnson who kidnapped her adopted daughter Lani. At the same time, Pima County Homicide Detective Brian Fellows and Border Patrol agent Dan Pardee track a killer on the land of the desert people, the Tohono O'odham. The latest extended Walker Family mystery (see Hour of the Hunter and Kiss of the Dead) is a great entry as J.A. Jance deftly balances her myriad of leads, their cases, the present day culture of the People and the geography. The multiple plots connect by the Walkers and company who diligently work at what they do best. Ms. Jance is at her best with this terrific mystery that blends past and present Tucson, Southern California and the Tohono O'odham Nation into a powerful thriller. Harriet Klausner

275 pages. I love J A Jance's books. This one is 275 pages. It is well edited. I only noticed one small error about half way through. Two words did not have a space between them. Big deal, I wish I could do as well. I do not know how I missed this book published in 2010, but somehow I did. It was a wonderful read. There was quite a bit of murder and violence. Not extremely graphic. No sex. Some religion. A bit of romance. A dog gets killed, but its death was not horribly torturous or disturbing as the reader does not get to know him. I still have a problem with animal deaths, even at my old and jaded age. There are a LOT of people in this book, and I do mean a lot. There are also o lot of referrals to people in other books and deceased family members. If possible you should read the earlier books in this series to know what is going on. This series is about the Indian Reservation and not Joann Brady. Both series are excellant. These books are not geared to all readers, ages 16 and up. Highly recommended. AD

Queen of the Night: A Novel of Suspense: murder rampages, the border patrol, and a small child witness should have made this another great read in the Walker family series. But this one lacked the fast driving suspense of the previous books. Still, it is better than so much other stuff and I did finish it.
