I have been a fan of J. A. Jance since I read her first J. P. Beaumont book. This book is one of her best. It is set mostly in the Tuscon, Arizona and partly in Seattle. Beaumont is at looses ends folllowing demise of S.H.I.T. and refusing to become involve with Ralph Ames TLC group. He is asked to look into a case in Arizona that Brandon Walker is planning to added to TLC and they talk together. Meanwhile Lani and Gabe are spending the night at Tohono O’adham sacred place and they become involve with diamond smugglers. The events are brought skillfully together into one story.
