The story opens with the Psychotic ramblings of a seriel killer which sets up one of the major plots that is thrilling, suspensefull, hair raising & no doubt a book that you will not be able to put down. Lucky for us readers J. A. Jance is a brillant suspense writer and successfully weaves more sub plots in and out and around the seriel killer.
Joanna Brady makes arrangements with her in-laws to care for her 9 year old daughter Jenny while she heads to Peoria, Arizona to attend the 5-6 week crash course at the Arizona Police Officers Academy. She soon realizes that she is emersed in the "good old boy" classroom style at the Academy along with a washed out dejected cop now the superintendent Dave Thompson (loud mouth over bearing jerk). There is one other woman Leanne Jessup at the Academy & soon she feels that she will have to be on her toes at all times. Be prepared for more power packed suspense at this point. It just gets better.
Joanna is cornered by her Chief Deputy Frank Montoya to at least listen to the elderly Juanita Grihalvo one of his Mothers friends that is very upset about her grandson being arrested for murdering his ex-wife. Joanna tries to explain to the elderly woman that she has no jurisdiction in that area but the elderly woman is insistent. Joanna takes the package of information with her thinking that she might as well take a look later. She has no idea how this is the beginning of unraveling the long unsolved murders. She decides to go ahead and start investigating anyway. What will it hurt. Joanna meets Leanne Jessup, Carol Strong, Butch Dixon and others that will be major players in the suspense.
