J A Jance has done it again. Rattlesnake Crossing is an excellent addition to the previous Joanna Brady mysteries. Set in a large county in Arizona shots rings out in the night and JoAnna is off again trying to save the citizens of Cochise County from murder. Fans of the Joanna Brady should also check out JA Jance's other series JP Beaumont of Seattle. I recommend both series to mystery fans.

While running for the position of Sheriff of Cochise County, Deputy Andy Brady was killed by a drug lord's hired gun. Andy's supporters convince his widow Joanna to run in his place in the upcoming election. Perhaps it was a sympathy vote, but to everyone's amazement, Joanna defeats her more experienced opponents. Months later, the grief has considerably diminished and she has become a very good law enforcement official.
Her latest case begins when Joanna arrives at the home of a licensed gun dealer and finds the man dead. Every weapon in the store is missing. Two more corpses are found. Both are the victims of a sniper with a 50-caliber rifle that is identical to what the deceased gun dealer supposedly kept in his stock. The women were scalped and their bodies were positioned in a special way, leading Joanna and her staff to believe they are contending with a serial killer, who must be stopped before someone else is murdered.
J.A. Jance brings to life the desert communities of the Southwest in such a vivid manner as to make readers feel as if they visiting Cochise County. In RATTLESNAKE CROSSING, the protagonist is a multi-complex character as she varies and balances her roles as mother, sheriff, friend, and potential girlfriend. This adds to that feeling of being on location. The story line is fast-paced and believable, making for a great addition to the Joanna Brady mysteries.

I stumbled across the Joanna Brady series with Desert Heat, and enjoyed the southern Arizona setting and the very real characters. I've since enjoyed following Joanna, her family and friends through the series of novels. Rattlesnake Crossing has really developed the relationship between Joanna and Butch - I can hardly wait till August for the next novel to be released to find out how Butch's moving to Bisbee will affect them!
A good deal of the action in Rattlesnake Crossing takes place on the Pomerene Road north of Benson, and towards Redington...I was excited to read about the San Pedro Valley, the flora and fauna, and the surrounding nearly-ghost-towns, since we are planning a vacation to the area. In fact, I can hardly wait to visit Bisbee to see the real Copper Queen Hotel, and to check to see if the building housing Joanna's office really exists!

J.A. Jance has done it again. I would hazard a guess that is the best J. Brady book yet. This book hit on some violent subject matter but it was handled in superb form and with a couple twists and turns to make it a book you just can't put down. Packed with action and intrique J. A. Jance has made Sheriff Joanna Brady a character that all people can identify with and come to love. I can't wait to read about Joanna Brady's next adventure in the little town of Bisbee, Az.

Joanna Brady faces her toughest case yet. There is a serial killer on the loose, and Joanna Brady attacks the case with her usual crystal clear perception. In the latest Joanna Brady mystery we see Joanna Brady coming into her own. She is really growing with each book, and J. A. Jance is getting better with each book too! I have grown so fond of Joanna that I can hardly wait for the next book to come out so I can visit Bisbee again. This is J. A. Jance at her best.

I couldn't put this book down long before picking it back up. The plot turned on you and the ending came as quite a surprise. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the Joanna Brady mysteries, stumbling unto them during a brief time of unemployment and excessive reading. Her other series, with J.P. Beaumont, is just as good. Actually, I like "Beau" better but Joanna is really great herself.

My first J.A.Jance . Encouraged mostly by the ratings given by Amazon customers I bought this book and was totally satisfied. Ms Jance brings Joanna Brady and all of the characters to life and makes the reader feel that they are aware of small community life in Arizona. The only small critisism and it is very small was the lack of suspense at the end of this book
