    In a suspenseful addition to the Sheriff Joanna Brady series, the author redeems the over-used premise of ?young women in extreme peril? by focusing on characterizations and making each woman an individual and not just a victim. 3.5 stars ...

    A definite page turner that kept me up way past my bedtime in order to finish. I kept saying I would read just one more chapter and then finally turn off the light. Nah, wasn't going to happen. Had to stay up until I turned the final page. Glad I did. It was a good one. Best one from t...

    Told for multiple points of view Field of Bones has it all. There is a great mystery, a unexpected birth, and several new characters. I loved seeing how Joanna handled being on maternity leave. The betting pool about how long she would stay home was a nice funny touch. The mystery is v...

    How can I not give Jance five stars for her latest entry? I don't know how she does it. More to come. Update 10/28/18: While the Beaumont books remain my favorite of Jance's series, Brady and her crew have grown on me over the years. Jance's a master at creating appealing (and not-s...

    A good entry into the Joanna Brady series. Joanna is on maternity leave and a serial killer's field of bones is found. Her staff takes on the investigation but Joanna lends impressive aid. This one is a little more brutal than some of Joanna's previous entries. Recommended to Brady fan...

    How does this book have such a good rating? I must officially be a book snob now, because I hated this book. I have never read a book with so many character back stories. I am pretty sure that was one for every single person she talked about. I had to read this for book club which is w...

    Think I've given up on J.A. Jance. Every character has a long, narrative back-story, but very little current action or dialogue. In face, there is very little current action or dialogue period! Instead we get long narratives, very little suspense, and vaguely cliff-hanging "see me for ...

    Jance has done a good job of providing readers with a character driven police procedure suspense novel. If one is not familiar with the Joanna Brady series, this would be a good place to start. Jance has provided a great deal of background information on Brady, her parents, how she bec...

    The Joanna Brady series has seemed to be in a bit of a funk the last few entries, displaying more of a churn-out feel, than engaging. This newest entry regains a bit of the series? initial flair. The story follows lead character Brady?s juggling of new motherhood, and the tracking ...

    A Joanna Brady novel was the first book I read in the J.A. Jance series. I was so impressed by Jance?s writing skills that I read all this series and the other two series. Jance is a master storyteller. In this book, Joanna Brady is up for election for her 3rd term as sheriff. In ...

    I have always been a big fan of J.A. Jance but her latest in the Joanna Brady series (#18), is not her best work. While she handled the police procedural aspect of the main story which included serial kidnapping, rape and murder rather well if not slightly redundantly, it was the under...

    It was all I could do to get through the first half of the book. Don?t get me wrong. Field of Bones, set in Arizona, fulfills its promise of being a suspenseful novel, and it is very well written. The characters are appropriately developed, and I certainly understand the appeal of Sh...
