Damage Control by J.A. Jance

This new offering by J.A. Jance, Damage Control, is as good as her others in her Joanna Brady series. For those who've not had a taste of Jance, you're in for atreat, esp with this 13 book series. Joanna is the sheriff of Bisbee in Cochise County, Arizona. Her first case happens to be an accident off an overpass, which looks like a suicide pact between an elderly local couple, but when the evidence pops up, some very suspicious characters loom in the picture. Another case, where an intruder breaks into the house of a young terrified and much abused and battered woman, kills the guy, thinking him to be her ex-boyfriend Amidst all this, there is a horrific storm, whichmakes recovering the bodies and car from aravine. Then, a young boy finds parts of a dead body in two large trash bags that had floated miles from where the body was left. Trying to juggle a career, a teenaged daughter, a 4 month old baby son, spelling feedings with her author/writer hubby and trying to understand her difficult mother, makes for a good read.

On a beautiful sunny day in the Coronado National Monument, an elderly couple's car goes off the side of a mountain and into oblivion. The terrain is so rocky that a helicopter must be flown in to redtrieve the bodies, and to make matters worse, a thunderstorm is looming onthe horizon. Hours later and miles away, the subsiding rain redveals gruesome evidence: two trash bags containing human remains. This is just a little to whet your appetite for more. I highly recommend this new novel by a great best-selling author. She has her new Ali Reynolds series, J.P. Beaumont series and a 3 book thriller.
