It was okay but not nearly as good as the earlier work by the author. Reynolds is so rich she can just pick up the phone to start a huge investigation costing thousands of dollars with several people doing her bidding and this makes it difficult to take her seriously as a "detective" (amateur or not)
This is the first JANCE books I have read and it was good.. Two story lines--both both good but the second was the most compelling.
Both subplots have strong moral underpinnings. The one involving threats to Ali's daughter-in-law's grandmother is the more plausible but less compellingly told. The other, beginning with a pregnant teenager on the run from a cult, has timely aspects. It's a page turner and takes up more of the book. While less plausibly told, it's highly gripping, and leaves the reader with important moral issues to think about.
Beware the OverDrive system! I've given up trying to check out any books that require the OverDrive app... it should be called UnderDesigned!
Another page turner from Jance, involving Ali Reynolds and her cohorts. Great read
Another Ali Reynolds story. Although I sometimes think J.A.Jance’s storylines have become more convoluted, they are still a fast-paced read. I admire Jance’s ability to take current events and weave the concepts into her stories. I have to say J.P Beaumont is still my favorite J.A. Jance character
Enjoyed this book as well as all of J.A. Jance's books. Easy to get interested and remain interested in what would happen next.
Another high-tech mystery with Ali Reynolds and new husband and cyber security mogul B. Simpson. Ali draws on B. and her other friends at High Noon who employ surveilance cameras, drones and the fastest DNA lab in the world to help solve the mystery of an injured girl and her newborn baby. You have to love Ali's two octagenarian cohorts: patient advocate Sister Anselm and "butler" Leland Brooks. Of course the whole story is crazy outlandish, even getting the governor of Arizona involved this time but it's all in good fun. There's also a side story about Ali's daughter-in-law's grandmother that takes place in Bemidji. One of the best things about this series, especially lately, is there are fewer dead bodies and more recoveries and happy endings (except for the baddies of course!).
Could not put it down. Had two story lines vying for Ali's attention, both gripping.
