Will Sophie and Cole's defiance be enough as hidden enemies move in to destroy the Hellers once and for all?
Fire and Ice: A Beaumont and Brady Novel
By: J.A. Jance
Seattle investigator J.P. Beaumont is working a series of murders that has created a grisly pattern of death across western Washington. Thousands of miles away, at the same time, Cochise County sheriff Joanna Brady is looking into a homicide of an elderly man whose dog is the only improbable witness to some kind of turf warfare or possibly something more sinister. A breakthrough in Beaumont's case leads him into Brady's jurisdiction and when the two met on a joint investigation years earlier, sparks flew. Even more could have happened, they both admit, if it had been under different circumstances. As the threads of their two seemingly separate cases wind together, Brady and Beaumont must put aside their shared past as they are once again drawn into an orbit of deception.
