Cut loose from her moorings, Ali is summoned back home to Sedona, Arizona, by the death of a childhood friend. Once there, she seeks solace in the comforting rhythms of her parents' diner, the Sugarloaf Café, and launches an online blog as therapy for others who have been similarly cut loose.
But when threatening posts begin appearing, Ali finds out that running a blog is far more up-close and personal than sitting behind a news desk. And far more dangerous. Suddenly something dark and deadly is swirling around her life...and a killer may be hunting her next.

I have enjoyed all the JA Jance books I've read, and this one was no exception. This is the first audiobook of hers I've listened to, and I found I was listening to it whenever I could. I wanted to know what happens. It wasn't until almost the end of the book that I guessed "who done it."
A 50-something who loves sci-fi, cozy mysteries, thrillers, an occasional romance, and any genre if it is a good story. And especially if it makes me laugh! No vampires or zombies though - these are NOT sci-fi!
Edge of evil is the beginning of another series by J. A. Jance, starring Ally Reynolds. She is a tv news anchor who is fired because of her age, and she won't stand for it! Then her childhood best friend is found dead, and she has more to think about than losing a job. I really enjoyed the writing here, it sounded more like a real person's life, with several story lines that are handled admirably. I read this book when it first came out, and enjoyed this narration. When the narrator's style blends in so well that you don't notice the narrator - that is when it is done right!
Ok book, definatly not a page turner. The weird music that cuts into the story at times is because this book was first made as a book on tape. The music lets you know its the end of the tape and not the end of the story. When it was transferred to digital file the music was not edited out. Hope this helps.
The book was pretty good, however, what's with the really inappropriate jazz-like music? It's not even in natural places and is very distracting. The narrator was good but was drowned out sometimes by that darn music!!
Retired Political Science professor from a community college. Especially like Legal Thrillers.
Yes, the narrator did an excellent job, adding to the enjoyment of the story.
A story that was easy to visualize.
Excellent overall job.
No extreme reaction. I was familiar with the author's other series, J. P. Beaumont and Joanna Brady and was interested to try the Ali Reynolds series.
As I found true of J. A.'s other books, I would fit this work into the easy listening category. I won't bother to comment on the periodic bursts of music since that issue was explained by other reviewers.
I definitely recommend this to all my bookworm friends.
Ali's awakening to a new type of life. Her investigative skills help bring the story to a tight close. Ali's relationship with her family is precious and humorous.
Ali, of course. Her mother, next and all the others fall into place. Well written, well read.
I will have all of this series and Jance's other series in my library to listen to at any time on the road or working in my office. She is a marvelous author and one of my heroes. An author that can make me smile, laugh out loud, cry and go back to read the story again and again is a true winner in my book. Or should I say books!

JA Jance writes an excellent, listenable story. Ali Reynolds has quickly become a favorite of my wife and me. Good twists and turns in the story-line will keep you listening.
