The A List – J.A. Jance (5**)


I was fortunate to receive this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.
Years ago, Ali Reynolds was approached by a woman who was desperately seeking answers. Her son, conceived via an infertility clinic with the aid of a sperm donor, is critically ill, and needs a kidney transplant. The infertility clinic has no answers, as it claims old records were destroyed by a disgruntled former employee. So, Alexandra Munsey turned to the press – and to Ali for help, which resulted in a regional scandal, and a respected physician going to prison for murder.

Still imprisoned years later with no hope of parole, Dr. Edward Gilchrist has nothing but time on his hands, and only his wealthy, aging mother Hannah to visit him. He crafts a crude tattoo on his arm with initials of those responsible for his downfall – his ‘annihilation’ list. But money and fame have their place, and Edward is invited to share the lunch table of a connected crime Lord, who can make things happen on the outside, for a price……and Ali Reynolds is on that list…

I have been a fan of J.A. Jance for years and I’ve read every book that she has written! For those who are fans of ANY of her series, this book will not disappoint! Told in increments of past and present, you’re quickly pulled into the story, and won’t want to put the book down!! (And long live Frigg, the AI – love him!!) A must read from a great author!!
