Montezuma County Sheriff's detective, Jude Devine doesn't face too many challenges based in remote Paradox Valley, where most of the crime involves hiker assaults, campsite thefts, and cattle rustling. However, when the body of local teenager shows up with a stake through her heart, Jude finds herself leading an investigation no one wants to touch. As Jude uncovers the truth about the murder and tries to save a young girl from being forced into a marriage, she must decide how much she is willing to risk to see justice done. Further complicating her choices is her torrid entanglement with the golden girl of Southwestern forensic pathology, Dr. Mercy Westmoreland.

Jude Devine is a Cool undercover FBI agent!
AWESOME LESBIAN MYSTERY! The book is a very good mystery, with a lot of information about the 4 corners area, along with a lot of information on the Mormon's Polygamy groups and how they operate just outside the law and get by with it. And you get all this information from the POV of a lesbian woman, And there are other people to Identify with, June's deputy who had a need to prove himself but was always out of step with the other cops, There is the young ex-Mormon woman desperate to get her little sister out of the hands of the Polygamist. It is a full rich novel full of characters, including Jude's love interest, Dr. Westmorland The renowned ME from Grand Junction. Keeping Jude on a tight rope. As I said the novel is very rich and full and well written by MS. Beecham,
Jude who was full of secrets, I could go on and on about them, but they would need spoilers. She is just so cool. And the Mystery so well written.
Is this the same Kim Baldwin the writer? When does she have time to read other peoples work unless Rose Beechum is Kim Baldwin because Rose Beechum is a pen name, I know she wrote under several names, Still Kim Baldwin is like a hugely successful writer. I love her work, Unless this is a different Kim Baldwin at any rate she is a very good reader. She brings Jude alive. Makes you love Jude.
I wish I had that kind of time, as it was I almost listen to most of it in one night, but I didn't get much sleep. I normally listen to books at night to sleep, Which means backing them up and listening to them over and over,
This a great book!!! And I hope they record the other two Jude Devine Novels. The Trilogy is a great set, I always wished Beechum would of written more books but I guess commercially they didn't sale well, Lesbian books don't sale six million copies.
