About Jance's newest book, released September 2023: In "Blessing of the Lost Girls: A Brady and Walker Novel," (William Morrow: On sale: September 19, 2023), J. A. Jance combines characters from two of her bestselling series to track down a killer who preys on victims that are often neglected by local police—young Indigenous women. For Dan Pardee, a former Border Patrol Shadow Wolf, these cases are personal. His wife, Lani, the adopted daughter of Brandon and Diana Walker, is Native American. Half Anglo, he’s the son a murdered Apache woman. Since Rosa’s remains were found in Cochise County, Dan’s investigation brings him into Sheriff Joanna Brady’s territory and introduces him to an unexpected ally: her daughter. Jennifer Brady is a college senior majoring in criminal justice. Together Dan and Jenny uncover other possible victims—as well as one young woman who survived a brutal attack. Dan and Jenny soon realize that they’re dealing with a serial killer who follows the rodeo circuit in search of potential victims.
