    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...

    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...

    An interesting story which I enjoyed reading, but I did feel a little ?short changed?. Although Joanna is part of the story her role is very much an administrator in this book. This was obviously because she had just given birth to her baby daughter, but one of the reasons I like t...

    Not much suspense since all scenes laid out and all characters had a voice in setting their part in the plot. Focused on the pure evil of a criminal, there was much narrative about his actions. The cooperation of the various law enforcement agencies played a major role in ensuring the ...

    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 ...

    J.A. Jance has written an admirable book covering several social problems. You have the feelings of several parties as the sheriff's deputies, the victim, and the villain. It handles memories, maternity, cold cases, serial killers, kidnapping, religion, the inability of letting go, res...

    I've loved all the Joanna Brady series, as well as the Aly Reynolds and I think I've read all the J.P.Beaumonts. Perhaps I've missed a few, but not many. This one was great -- exciting and suspenseful. J. Brady just keeps on keeping on, despite age and babies and whatever. The bad guy ...
