Sheriff Joanna Brady returns for her 17th adventure in J.A. Jance’s forthcoming new novel, Field of Bones. Readers haven’t seen Joanna since 2016’s Downfall when she investigated the death of two women who fell from a mountain peak named Geronimo. In her new book, Jance pits her protagonist up against a ruthless serial killer. . . see the details below!
Sheriff Joanna Brady’s best intentions to stay on maternity leave take a hit when a serial homicide case rocks Cochise County, dragging her into a far-reaching investigation to bring down a relentless killer in this chilling tale of suspense from New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance.
This time Sheriff Joanna Brady may expect to see her maternity leave through to completion, but the world has other plans when a serial homicide case surfaces in her beloved Cochise County. Rather than staying home with her newborn and losing herself in the cold cases to be found in her father’s long unread diaries, Joanna instead finds herself overseeing a complex investigation involving multiple jurisdictions.
Filled with the beloved characters, small-town charm, vivid history, intriguing mystery, and the scenic Arizona desert backdrop that have made the Joanna Brady series perennial bestsellers, this latest entry featuring the popular sheriff is sure to please J. A. Jance’s legion of fans.
Field of Bones comes out on September 4th and will be Jance’s second release in 2018. Her first, Duel to the Death, the next book in her Ali Reynolds franchise, comes out March 20th. Both books are available for pre-order wherever books are sold.
