Overview

Rattlesnake Crossing (Joanna Brady Series #6) by J. A. Jance

Sheriff Joanna Brady is the law in Cochise County, and she will never allow her personal trials to interfere with the job she was elected to do—especially now that death has invaded Bisbee, Arizona, and has shattered the small desert town's fragile peace.

A gun dealer has died violently, and his stock of high-powered weapons has been cleaned out. Suspicion falls upon rancher Alton Hosfield, an armed separatist at war with the federal government and the local law—with everyone, in fact, whom he perceives as a threat to his independent way of life.

Joanna Brady suspects the solution is not so cut-and-dried—especially when the cold-blooded slaying is followed by a series of others, equally horrific and perplexing. At best, an incendiary "Ruby Ridge" situation is brewing. At worst, a maniacal serial killer has come to feed on her unsuspecting community. But Joanna's preoccupation with bringing a murderer to justice could take a terrible toll on her private life . . . and unravel threads of family, love, and responsibility that might never again be retied.

Rattlesnake Canyon is a great addition to the Johanna Brady series. It was very engaging to the point of being hard to put down. This time we read not only a well-written mystery, but also an emotional story as well. I can't wait to read the next installment. Stephanie Clanahan

Another great novel in the Joanna Brady series by J.A. Jance. Great plot and plenty of action. Highly recommended. I plan on reading all of her books.

I've read all but the first few of the Joanna Brady series (as well as all of the Beaumonth series) over the past few years. For a trip, I bought books 2 through 5 (Rattlesnake Crossing) that I'd missed. All excellent, though when reading in order you do have to work through the sections of the novels that bring you up to date (easy skim there).

Once again this series never seems to disappoint me. A great book from start to finish. Try as I maight I am still always amazed at who the killer is. Another great book in this great series. A must read for anyone who is a fan not only of J.A. Jance, but also the Joanna Brady series.

I love mysteries set in the southwestern part of the United States, and J.A. Jance is one of the best. Her main characters make you feel like part of the family. You wouldn't mind being related to these people. Jance pulls you right into her books, and you don't want to leave. She's a very special writer.
