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

I was hard pressed to finish this novel...not up to her usual standard.

This is indeed a fast read and okay if that is what you want. Which I did. However, I did not find this a compelling story and I was not particularly embroiled with the characters. The plot was satisfactory, the reader's voice was pleasant, and she didn't try to sound like a man for the male characters.

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.
