Excellent it's always sad for me when I finish a J A Jance book, I read them so fast because they are always good. This one doesn't disappoint. I've been a follower of her levels for years, this is one in the Ali Reynolds series, very likeable characters always with lots of money to be able to do the cool detecting that she does.
I eagerly await her next novel. I hope it's Beaumont! I was also fortunate enough to meet J A Jance at a book signing, she lives in the Seattle area as do I. Mar 15, Sally Ember rated it liked it. Dragged in many places and just not that interesting, but had one or two good twists. Not really worth your time unless you're a fan of the series or high-tech security plots.
Apr 12, Taicarmel added it. Jance, J. Welcome to the world of the super- rich where middle-aged women fly first-class to London for a week to buy a wedding dress, taking their senior employee as a treat. The groom owns a multinational cyber security company, while the senior's nephew lives in Knightsbridge with his partner who owns a chain of restaurants.
Add in a taser-toting nun and an a SEAL trained priest and there is certainly plenty of room for action. Jance' mystery series "Ali Reynolds".tf.nn.threadsol.com/milup-the-best.php
She is a "best- selling and prolific American writer of mystery series" Although there are references to previous books in the series, relevant content is well explained. The plot follows the involvement of a juvenile hacker who has been harshly imprisoned, and the activities of various unscrupulous companies and High Noon trying to acquire his programmes. There is a sub-plot concerning the family skeletons of Leyland Brooks, Ali's eighty-something "longtime aide-de-camp and majordomo". The story is interesting enough with lots of plot complications. Resolution is predictably perfect with a symmetry of outcome that is almost mathematical.
The writing style is simple and clear. There is an annoying duplication of text which screams for an editing eraser. The variety of characters are flat with insignificant development. The major theme are injustice, cyber security and greed. Overall, though a light read, the mystery is sufficient to motivate a full reading to see all the t's crossed and i's dotted.

Ali travels to England with her property manager Leland Brooks, she buys a wedding dress and uncovers the murderer of Leland's father 60 years earlier. Tucker had hacked his school system computer, a client of B's and he had traced the hacker. The prison sentence for what was essentially a prank seems excessive.
When circumstances land Lynn Martinson, one of Lowensdale's victims, in another pickle, Martinson's mother recommends she turn to Reynolds for help. But Martinson and boyfriend Chip Ralston soon find themselves in worse trouble after the discovery of the body of Ralston's avaricious ex-wife, Gemma Ralston.

The discovery of a second body near the first raises puzzling questions about possible connections between the victims. Meanwhile, high school senior A. Sanders, who anonymously reported Gemma's death, also seeks Reynolds help as he tries to avoid suspicion. Mar 09, Bob rated it really liked it.

Both threads become entangled and in B. As usual Jance has delivered a good read. May 19, judy rated it really liked it Shelves: mystery-thriller.
Jance has been writing good mystery series' forever and I've been reading them for that long. Ali is rather a newbie next to Brady and Beaumont so I have not been as attached. I thought,however, Jance outdid herself on this one--making it the equal of any of the books in her older series.
First, she managed to run two mysteries at once--gracefully so many good authors fail at this. Second, she moves with the times.
