Description
The desert is a good place to bury a body. And under the sun-parched Arizona landscape some chilling secrets are about to unfold as newly elected Sheriff Joanna Brady investigates a most peculiar double homicide.A body, barely cold, is lying in an abandoned mine shaft. Next to it are the decayed remains of a man everyone in Cochise County has long forgotten - a murder victim who died long before Joanna Brady was born. And the only thing that hasn't evaporated in the Arizona sun are whispered and life-shattering rumors of appalling childhood abuse.As the desert gives up its grisly secrets, Joanna Brady battles to redeem the savaged reputation of one of her personal heroes. Her day-to-day struggle lends new meaning to the term working mother. The incoming sheriff faces an intensely hostile male-dominated police department. She fends off the attentions of her well-meaning mother even as she strives to handle her own difficult and suddenly temperamental daughter.Despite a placid, small-town surface, greed and manipulation are working overtime among Cochise County's movers and shakers. And Joanna earns her newly won badge when she uncovers a suspected killer who has lurked there undetected for two generations.Along with the dismayed, tongue-wagging citizens of Bisbee, Arizona, the reader is seduced into the web of passions and secrets Jance so ably weaves. Fast-paced and shocking, Tombstone Courage is a multilayered mystery that delves into the heart of the New West with a foundation firmly grounded in its storied, gunslinging past.

display_descriptionWhen drug dealers murdered her lawman husband, Joanna Brady vowed she would carry on his good work no matter what the cost. With grit, courage, and dogged determination, she challenged the status quo-and won. Now, as newly elected Sheriff of Cochise County, Arizona, she must battle the prejudice and hostility of a mistrustful, male-dominated police force and solve a grisly double homicide that threatens to tear the sleepy desert community to pieces. For the two bodies baking in the harsh Southwestern sun are connected by sinister threads that reach back generations-and by devastating family secrets of greed, hatred, and shocking abuse that could destroy the innocent along with the guilty.
