Definitely not one of her best. Superhero Ali Reynolds is just too good to be true and so totally unbelievable as she is in all places at all times always and saving the day. I usually love Jance’s books but this was pretty trite and so unrealistic. Very disappointing.

Ali reynolds

her name is everywhere, so i tried to read her, several times. there was no depth to anything about her fiction, at best it seemed cleverly contrived. i'd rather read the old classics, than her , any old time. she's the danielle steel of mystery fiction.

Joanna Brady was a single mom and the first woman sheriff in Arizona's old boys club. JP Beaumont was a struggling alcoholic who seemed to only attract women who were bad for him (like his serial killer wife). Poor Ali Reynolds just has to suffer through being rich, beautiful, and famous, and living near her perfect parents and perfect son while her majordomo cooks her meals and does all her housework. I miss the old characters who were interesting and realistic.

A few of the characters are stereotypes, like the pimp. But this complex story weaves two plots together via old friends Sister Anselm and Ali Reynolds who find themselves together in an ICU waiting room. They solve two near-murders that law enforcement is, to begin with, not very interested in, via the connections they find. One of the things I love about Jance is the completeness with which each of her series builds on its own set of characters and its own settings. This one has a bit more action than character development, but for those who already know the characters, it doesn't matter.

Second book I've read by this author. Love her books - exciting and real page-turner.

Classic Jance, good story, good characters. Not as gripping as some of her efforts, but a worthy rad. If you haven't read her blog at jajance.com do so for good insights.
