For die-hard crime readers, I’d like to recommend a way to enjoy the start of a good day. This is what I do. Remember that I am a retired college professor. So I spent four decades in the classroom and everything else that makes a reasonably competent biology teacher. During that time I didn’t have much time to read for pleasure, so it took me a while to work on a 400-page novel (389 in the case of Jance’s Remains of Innocence, which I review here).
Now that I don’t have to worry about grading another assignment, I can fit novel reading into my slightly less demanding schedule. So I wake up around 8 am and head to the kitchen to make myself a cup of old-fashioned coffee (Latin American espresso made in a beer mug with a coffee sock, available in various Cuban supermarkets in Miami). . Then I grab the Roman du jour and head to the Portikus to enjoy another day of fabulous weather while flipping through a few more chapters of the book I’m reading. If it turns out to be one of the wonderful creations of J.A. Jance, then I can be sure that day will be good.
J.A. Jance is a wonderful writer. Turns out I saw them on the shelves of a used book store in Copán, Honduras, in 2008, when I ran to the end of the novels I had taken on the trip. A long and pleasant journey began, as J.A. Jance has written a large number of novels in his career to date. So, I just finished the last part of his Joanna Brady series, Remains of Innocence. Of the three series that Jance skillfully manages, this is my favorite.
Joanna Brady is the sheriff of Cochise County, Arizona, with her office in Bisbee, where Jance grew up. Sheriff Brady lives on the outskirts of town with her husband Butch and her two children at High Lonesome Ranch. Butch is a former cook and restaurant owner who now writes novels for a living. Joanna’s prickly mother and father-in-law live nearby, and Butch’s mother also lives depressingly nearby. The two mothers are constantly competing with each other for the mother-in-law from hell award.
In Remains of Innocence, Mrs. Jance has a very intriguing way of intertwining two separate stories, which eventually become one halfway through the book. In doing so, she begins one story in a prologue and the other in chapter one. From then on, she alternates the stories chapter by chapter until she cleverly combines them into approximately chapter 10 (there are 33 chapters in the book).
Since her main character lives in Arizona and the prologue introduces a character who lives in western Massachusetts, Jance must figure out how to get the supporting character to the Bisbee area. The way she accomplishes this feat is one of the most satisfying things about this novel, but the author is a master of this approach to creating a novel.
Suffice it to say that in Chapter 10, Sheriff Brady is confronted with two murders committed within a day of each other, one involving a relative of the character introduced in the prologue, the other involving a Bisbee resident who showed up at a previous novel. In an attempt to gather the evidence needed to identify the killers, he must recruit his mother-in-law, the former but now retired county coroner, much to the predictable dismay of his mother.
Meanwhile, the half-sister of one of the murder victims heads west, along a route I’ll let the readers of this review show for themselves. Suffice to say, they’ll find plenty to think about as the half-sister travels across the country.
Jance puts Joanna Brady on trial as the sheriff works to solve both murders at the same time, though they appear to be unrelated. I don’t want to say more because the ending is unpredictable and part of the pleasure of reading this novel. Needless to say, I highly recommend this product from Jance Art. It’s hard to go wrong with her.
