Publisher's Summary

Ali Reynolds and her team at High Noon Enterprises must race against the clock to save an archbishop who faces mysterious death threats in yet another “incredible” (Suspense Magazine) installment of J.A. Jance’s New York Times best-selling series. 

Years after her son’s fatal overdose, grieving mother Rachel Higgins learns that his addiction may have grown out of damage suffered at the hands of a pedophile priest while he was in high school. Looking for vengeance, she targets the Catholic Church’s most visible local figure, Archbishop Francis Gillespie. When the archbishop begins receiving anonymous threats, local police dismiss them, saying they’re not credible. So he turns to his friends, Ali Reynolds and her husband, B. Simpson.

With B. out of the country on a cybersecurity emergency, it’s up to Ali to track down the source of the threats. When a shooter assassinates the archbishop’s driver and leaves the priest himself severely injured, Ali forms an uneasy alliance with a Phoenix homicide cop in hopes of preventing another attack. But Ali doesn’t realize that the killer has become not only more unhinged but also more determined to take out his or her target.

Gripping

It doesn’t seem all that long ago that I read book one of the series. I remember thinking to myself I will give this new series a try but probably will just stay with the Joanna Brady series. Here it is book fifteen and I am still reading. J. A. Jance is a master storyteller.

The book is well written and fast paced. The suspense builds throughout the story. I really enjoyed her unusual characters. I noted in this story the newly added AI is helping out. The topic of this episode is the Catholic Church and its problem with pedophilia. I could hardly put this book down. Makes a great summer read.

The book is eleven hours and six minutes. Karen Ziemba does a good job narrating the book. Ziemba has narrated the entire series. I think it is important to keep the same narrator through-out a series.

Tough topic; well addressed.

The reality, horror, and cultural construct that fostered and covered up the abuse of children for generations and globally in and by the Catholic Church, was addressed clearly and compassionately. Only Ali and her community could tackle crime solving and this heart wrenching issue in a compelling manner. Thank you Ms Jance!
