Juggling a family and a career is never easy—and it's becoming a real challenge for Sheriff Joanna Brady. Coping with the impending delivery of her second child as well as a staff shortage, the last things Joanna needs are two serious crimes.

First, the body of an unidentified man is found in the desert, all of his fingers savagely severed. Following the scant clues, Joanna learns that the victim was an ex-con who had served twenty years in prison after confessing to the murder of his pregnant wife. During his last days he was seen following and photographing a young woman.

Then one of Joanna's officers is brutally attacked while on an unauthorized stakeout. Because the officer is one of it's own, the department throws its resources into finding her attacker. But the murder haunts Joanna. Being a sheriff has become what she is and she'll risk everything to see that justice is done.

This is getting monotonous. thought we were over this. You care about dogs and care about people. And, you know what, sometimes people focus more on animals because they are the innocent victims. They don't set up murders and destroy everyone in sight for their mountain.
Again a good book with a good story. But this is one area where at least I would love to see Joanna evolve.

Nice to read a book that doesn't have people jumping in and out of bed with each other. It's a good mystery book also. Held my interest. The author seems to always have a twist to who is guilty and so makes it interesting to try and figure out is the guilty party. I just like her books not only because of the who is the guilty party but because of the first sentence. You don't have to have all that sex to have a good read.

This is another wonderful book by the Author, I have read so many over the years, these people are familar to me.
Joanna Brady is a gutsy and very pregnant Sheriff, she has one thing after the other to tend to. A murdered man with his fingers cut off.
A friend in the animal control shelter of the county, with more than she can take care of. The beating and near death of a close friend and
co worker. The puzzle of past history of her father, his found journals and the knowledge of what that has to do with her current investigations.
What a story, especially when it all comes together with the new found information that not only clears up some current events, but deals with a
past case that has woven over the years to come to a head in this fast moving story. Joanna not only shoots the carjacker, but saves the day, just
as she finishes up her duty to her family and job. Wow...thanks again to J. A. Jance.

I bought this book and intend to buy all the others I do not have.

This book was one of the best in the Joanna Brady series. Her pregnancy as she investigates a murder had shades of Fargo in the background. A guy who did twenty years for the murder of his wife and unborn child makes little sense. The man paid his debt to society, had no friends or enemies. To get to the bottom of this crime Brady must go back to the original crime where this victim was convicted of murder although a body was never recovered. A real page turner.

This books takes many turns to find the killer of an ex con who the author keeps you guessing "was he a good guy or the bad ex con" who went back to his old ways. Joanna is pregnant and about to give but as one of her officers is severely injured, she is determined to solve both of these crimes before she gives birth. Joanna has developed into savvy police officer not just a figure head.

This novel is definitely on my list of recommendations. Besides dealing with the main cases, a murder and a dogfighting investigation, there are side issues that Sheriff Joanna Brady must deal with. There are family issues such as her pregnancy, the publication of her husband's first mystery novel, and the unexpected arrival of her mil from Hell. Then there are the issues within the department including being shorthanded because of the National Guard call up for Iraq, a detective on sick leave, and the department's responsibility for animal control.

The cases move forward, and the murder investigation leads to some surprises. Turning over rocks can reveal a lot about the past. When some parties involved are killed, it is necessary to speculate about what actually happened. The novel is set in the present and deals with various contemporary issues.

Not just "Dead Wrong", but the entire Joanna Brady series forms a well written progression in the lives of its continuing characters, and in the unbelievably crime-ridden area called Cochise County, in southeastern Arizona. Jance writes in a manner that effectively holds the reader's attention -- one of the few series that will keep me reading past my bed time. I have read the series one after another over the past few months, and have enjoyed the twists and turns in every book. Also a good mixture of light humor. While you know that the diminutive Sheriff Brady is going to "get her man" in the end, Jance throws in enough diversions that you aren't quite sure how she's going to bring it all together until that end. I especially appreciate the lack of vulgarities and excessive gory details -- proof that riveting stories can still be written without these "props".
This latest installment in the Joanna Brady mystery series was excellent, as always. Jance writes well-plotted and characterized novels that are a joy to read. I'm usually pretty cheap and wait for books to appear in my area's used bookstore before I buy them. But because Jance is one of my favorite authors I buy them new because I know I'll keep them. She is one of only two authors I always buy new (the other is Jan Karon).

The reason is simple: she consistently writes wonderful stories! I particularly like the ones featuring Joanna Brady. It's been fun to watch Joanna's character develop throughout the series. She started out a housewife and mom who worked in an insurance office. When her husband is killed in the line of duty she sets out to find the killer. In the second book she is elected sheriff (sort of a sympathy vote, but still it gets her into position) and from then on, we see her develop into a seasoned police officer and confident administrator, but always struggling with the demands of motherhood and her place in the community. She seems REAL and she's the kind of person we'd all like to know and call our friend. At the end of every book I'm left anticipating the next!
