About The Author
J.A. Jance is the New York Times bestselling author of the Ali Reynolds series, the J.P. Beaumont series, the Joanna Brady series, as well as four interrelated Southwestern thrillers featuring the Walker family. Born in South Dakota, and brought up in Brisbee, Arizona, Jance and her husband live in Seattle, Washington, and Tucson, Arizona.
The first book of J.A. Jance's that I ever read was the first book in the Ali Reynolds series so this series is very special to me. I have enjoyed reading about the evolution of Ali Reynolds in this series. In this latest outing we are following two interrelated stories that end up initially causing friction in Ali's relationship with the local police force much to her dismay.
This is J.A. Jance at her best. This is an excellent story with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader intrigued. Modern electronic techniques are employed to assist the detecting making this novel very up to date technologically. Ali's relationships with her family, Leland and her beau all progress forward in this tale.
Excellent storytelling, great story, puzzling mystery, and excellent pacing contribute to this novel's success. Highly recommend Deadly Stakes by J.A. Jance.
