Another great book featuring Ali Reynolds. I found this author about a year ago and have enjoyed every book I've read. This is a fairly quick read and I would definitely recommend it.

Ali grows and changes in this series, which like all of Jance's series, can be read on their own but are much more enjoyable read in order. Many of the other regulars are back too. Several subplots in this one require careful attention, but the reader always knows that, in Jance's trademark way, they'll come together in the end. And they do, in a most satisfying way. Ali's personal life has a satisfying conclusion here, too, one that leads into the next book.

A lot of story lines going on. But, of course, it all comes together in the end.

A pretty good installment in the series. I listened to it rather than reading. It was slow at times but had some action at the end. Ali and B flit around trying to nail a killer while staying in high buck hotels, driving expensive cars and using the occasional helicopter when needed. Ali's a bit at loose ends. She's not a reporter, not a cop, I'm interested to see whether she decides to become a PI or what. Regardless, she did make one big life decision at the end of this book.

J.A. Jance is one of my favourie mystery authors. She has three series going; the books within each series build upon the ones before, so it is important to read them in order if you want to read the stories as they grow over time. This series with Ali Reynolds is set in Arizona and has a protagonist I admire. This is a fast read but, as always, satisfying. Enjoy!

J. A. Jance has, as always, given me another satisfying read.
