In Day of the Dead, former sheriff Brandon Walker is asked by an old Indian woman to investigate the murder of her daughter who was killed in 1970. Walker, who is a member of a private agency that investigates old cases, takes the case on. In his investigation he finds other similarly unsolved murders involving dismembered bodies left alongside of a road.
I was largely unimpressed by Jance’s writing in this novel. I thought it was mediocre at best. The plot also suffered from a lack of believability. There really wasn’t much to like in this novel. The villain in the novel is almost comically portrayed. I would stay away from this novel.
