あらすじ・解説

Alice Rogers, an elderly widow, is dead, found murdered in the Arizona desert. It's easy enough to pin the killing on the teens caught driving her car across the Mexican border, but Sheriff Brady isn't about to let it go at that. Alice was something of a free spirit, with a penchant for Scotch, the glitter of Las Vegas, and a romance with a man 20 years her junior. Her hot-tempered daughter Susan suspects Mom's boyfriend—her former handyman who moved in instead of moving on when he finished his handy work. Now Susan's furious at her brother Clete, the do-nothing mayor of Tombstone, blaming him for not protecting their inheritance by breaking up their mother's winter romance.

Yet all is not as it appears to be, and Joanna is forced to put her personal life on hold to dig deeper into Alice's death, the lives of her greedy offspring, and the identity of her mysterious gentleman friend. And as the investigation gets sidetracked by ugly local land disputes, it takes some troublesome twists and turns, until Sheriff Brady finds herself wading through a murky morass of graft and corruption that may have given someone reason to kill—and kill again.

批評家のレビュー

"Not just for series fans, this installment features endearing characters and situations ranging from an environmentalist with a car trunk full of rattlesnakes to the local minister who feels she's lost her edge in the pulpit. Highly recommended." ( Library Journal)

Poor narration

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

i really enjoy J. A. Jance's series, the Ali Reynolds series was my favorite, but I've finished it and haven't been disappointed by the Joanna Brady series.

Did Outlaw Mountain inspire you to do anything?

I really want to get the next book in this series, but I will need to take a break. I just don't care for the narrator that has been used for the last few books I've listened to. It is an older woman, C.J. Critt, and Joanna Brady just isn't that old. And although she tries to use different voices, it just doesn't work. She narrates the next book, Devil's Claw, but then I see a different narrator for the books after that. Karen Ziemba, the narrator for almost all of the Ali Reynolds series is excellent!!!

Poor Narration

A great story with several plot lines and more opportunities to get to know Joanna’s fiancée, Butch Dixon. I read this series when they first came out and thought I would enjoy listening to them now, many years later. It’s hard to enjoy this good story with a narrator whose voice is much too old and scratchy to be Joanna. There’s little difference between dialogue and narration, and all the voices sound much the same. There are long pauses in some places, and virtually none between chapters. The narrator speaks so slowly, I listened to the entire book at 1.25 X the normal speed!

Another wonderful Brady Mystery

I love this series the characters are real with depth, flaws and care for each other. Butch is my favorite male partner.

narrator doesn't work for the character.

I do not care for the narrator this time. She simply does not fit Joanna Brady.

Joanna Brady Getting Savy

Joanna's character as a police woman is developing nicely. Plot was well developed with believable characters.

Continued Excellence

As part of the J A Jance series we not only enjoyed the plot development, but were able to fill in some pieces to help us understand the background for subsequent books. We have thoroughly enjoyed about fifteen of her books including this one.

Not my favorite but still pretty good…

As always, the characters in this J.A. Jance are interesting and likable but the plot became more sluggish than I'm used to from J.A. Jance. Still a good way to pass the time though…
