Dead Wrong,by J.A. Jance, AKA Desert Popcorn
It took me a little while to get into this book, but once I did it was hard to put it down. The Joanna Brady series is one I have dipped in and out of over the years. I haven't read all of them, but when I do pick one up I am never disappointed with the story. Her character combines the traits of all great female crime fighters-inner strength plus common sense plus compassion and a deep sense of justice. Not to mention she's kind of bad-ass when it comes to taking down the bad guys. The plot is fairly intricate but pretty believable which enough wiggle room in how it could play out to keep a person guessing until the end. I figured out the broad strokes of the secret fairly early, but I still wasn't sure about the details prior to the big reveal. As popcorn books go, I'd say Jance's books are pretty much a safe bet.
