Joanna Brady Mystery Series, book 1
Andrew Brady is shot and left in the desert to die. His wife, Joanna, finds him the morning after their anniversary from which he was mysteriously missing. He is in critical condition. The police believe Andrew tried to kill himself and that he was involved in drug dealing. When Andrew dies - under unexpected circumstances - in the hospital, the police rest their case, except to implicate Joanna to complicity. Joann investigates to prove her husband...and herself...innocent of all claims. Great anticipatory read to meeting Jance at the Tuscon Festival of Books.
