Sheriff Joanna Brady must solve two perplexing cases that may be tied together in New York Times best-selling author J. A. Jance's thrilling tale of suspense that brings to life Arizona's Cochise County and the desert Southwest in all its beauty and mystery.
An old woman, a hoarder, is dying of emphysema in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. In cleaning out her house, her daughter, Liza Machett, discovers a fortune in hundred dollar bills hidden in the tall stacks of books and magazines that crowd every corner.
Tracing the money's origins will take Liza on a journey that will end in Cochise County, where Sheriff Joanna Brady is embroiled in a personal mystery of her own. A man she considers a family friend is found dead at the bottom of a hole in a limestone cavern near Bisbee. And now there is the mystery of Liza and the money. Are the two disparate cases connected? It's up to Joanna to find out.

It was an interesting storyline but the terrible narration took away from the audio book.
The narrator could have acted like she was enjoying reading the story. I've heard children with more emotion in their reading than this narrator.
The two separate stories are intriguing and held my interest. I kept listening because of the story. The narrator was awful. I've read Joanna Brady mysteries previously and have imagined her as energetic but in the hands of this narrator she is tired and a "one note" character.
The book is read with such low energy I can't say I had a favorite character, it was the plot that was my favorite part of the book.
Another narrator with more energy would definitely be in order. With audio books the narrator is the make or break part of the book. In this case the reader "broke" the book.
