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.
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!

I enjoy reading the Joanna Brady mysteries but cannot recommend this one to my squeamish friends. I was surprised Jance chose such violent subject matter. Is this necessary???Published on 26 Aug. 1998
