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!!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
