    The first book of J.A. Jance's that I ever read was the first book in the Ali Reynolds series so this series is very special to me. I have enjoyed reading about the evolution of Ali Reynolds in this series. In this latest outing we are following two interrelated stories that end up initially causing friction in Ali's relationship with the local police force much to her dismay.This is J.A. Jance at her best. This is an excellent story with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader intrigued. [...]

    I still wish Jance would return to her first series about J.P. Beaumont or do another psychological thriller stand-alone or two. Of her mystery series, this one featuring Ali Reynolds is my least favorite. She always does stupid things. This one is no exception, although she's done even dumber things in previous novels. It's entertaining, but not a favorite. Easy, quick read.

    Is it me, or is Ali Reynolds an overly-judgmental bitch? She's also rich and spoiled and fairly snooty. Hell, nearly 95% of her characters are either nice and benign do-gooders or purely even shitwits. Are there no in-betweens? Can the hero have some flaws other than being a snob?The only thing I like about these books is reading out certain parts to my wife and then both of us having a good laugh. I mean really did the author need to explain to us that Ali knows what the term "brick" means in r [...]

    Jance is one of my favorite authors, and this book continues the Ali Reynolds series. I never thought I would like another character more than Joanna Brady, but I feel like I know Ali like a friend. This story is full of action, twists and turns and keeps you guessing all the way through. Jance's books are so well written that there are never any loose ends or questions at the endI don't start anything else right away, just letting her story percolate in my brain a while until I have figured out [...]

    A good Ali Reynolds read. I don't know what I'd do without J A Jance novels. Whenever no other books hold my interest I can always turn to one of her novels. I started reading her J P Beaumont series many years ago and haven't stopped sense. This book had a great story line and my favorite characters kept me going to an exciting end.

    I faithfully read every J.A. Jance novel, but they leave me feeling something is missing. I finally figured it out with this one: I prefer fictional crime-solvers that have personal flaws. Her protagonists, or at least the female ones (Ali Reynolds and Joanna Brady) are just too nice. I've always preferred Jance's J.P. Beaumont series, and now I know why.

    I really enjoy J.A.Jance's writing. This one more like 31/2stars than 41/2 stars. To me it started off slowly, but it really picked up about 1/3 of the way in.

    #8 in the Ali Reynolds series. Interesting story line and the series regular supporting cast save this entry from a plot with too many coincidences.Ali (Alison) Reynolds series -The former newscaster travels from Sedona, Ariz to Phoenix, where friend Brenda Riley is filming a story on cyber-stalker Richard Lowensdale, whom Reynolds helped bring down (Fatal Error (2011)). When circumstances land Lynn Martinson, one of Lowensdale's victims, in another pickle, Martinson's mother recommends she turn [...]

    I really enjoy the writing of J.A. Jance. Unfortunately for me, I've been grabbing her books off the shelf at random and not reading them in order, and that, it turns out, makes things very confusing. A good murder mystery requires a large number of people so that the suspects aren't quite so obvious. This also adds to the "confusion" factor. Having said that, though, the story was pretty good, with lots of twists and turns. I wasn't too crazy about the ending, though. Everything was explained, [...]

    Typical Jance, which means a good, solid plot with everyday people getting swept up in puzzling and ominous situations and a protagonist who doggedly figures it all out. A "typical" Jance also means one-dimensional characters and writing that often seems slapdash. She inserts her author's voice at one point, calling the actions of a character "incredibly stupid." Why not let the readers figure that out? And the baddie in this book pops up almost out of nowhere more than three-quarters of the way [...]

    It pains me to give a J.A. Jance book only 2 stars. I've been reading and enjoying Jance's books for years. But this one just isn't up to par. It starts out ok, with an interesting plot and familiar characters. Then about 3/4 of the way through the book, it's as if someone else took over writing the ending. Sort of like when a basketball team is winning by so many points, the coach puts in second string players. The last part of the book is predictable and boring, and even the dialog is lame. Ja [...]

    Like the last Ali Reynolds book, I think there are too many subplots which detract from the main story here, which is the murder of a gold digging divorcee. The ex-husband and his girlfriend are arrested based on some reasonable evidence and Ali is hired by the girlfriend's mother to do an investigative story. Meanwhile, a second murder is discovered nearby of an ex-con, who has suddenly come into money. As always, Ali gets too close to the truth and is captured by the perpetrators and, once aga [...]

    This was an enjoyable who-done-it. It was not the best detective type story I have read, but far from the worst. An easy read for those times when you just want to be entertained, but not drawn in so much that you can't put the book down.

    Debbe
    I love J.A. Jance so I keep reading these Ali Reynolds mysteries. They just aren't as good as Joanna Brady and J.P. Beaumont. I wish Jance would forget Ali and go back to one of her other characters

    I feel like this series hit a high note in books 5 & 6, but 7 & 8 have gone back down to where the series started. It's not a bad series. I am thoroughly enjoying it! But sometimes the individual books within the series just do not live up to the potential of the storyline. And I still have issues with how Jance writes. I am reading the Joanna Brady series while reading this one, and she writes in a very odd way sometimes. For instance, why does she always need to refer to the type of ve [...]

    This book is wish-fulfillment fantasy for the post-menopausal. Lucky Ali has: independent wealth, an athletic body, healthy grandchildren and active parents, romantic sex (the action happens off stage, but atrophic vaginitis is apparently not an issue for the ageless Ali), a devoted manservant, a selflessly devoted loverd the list goes on. Ali Reynolds is such a top-heavy pastiche of fantastic details that suspension of disbelief is impossible, and the details haven't even been reworked enough t [...]

    Ali is asked to look into the circumstances of a murder by the mother of the alleged perpetrator. Because there were two bodies discovered at the same time, Ali becomes involved in working to figure out the second murder as well. Ali enlists B Simpson and High Noon Enterprises to help her determine what was going on with Gemma Ralston. I was disappointed - (at the end!) to find out I'd read this one out of context - should have read it before Moving Target! Drat! Oh well ~ ~

    "Deadly Stakes" is the eighth installment of the Ali Reynolds series by J. A. Jance. It was very exciting. Ali is asked to look into the circumstances of a murder by the mother of the alleged perpetrator. Because there were two bodies discovered at the same time, Ali becomes involved in working to figure out the second murder as well. Ali enlists B Simpson and High Noon Enterprises to help her determine what was going on with Jemma Ralston. This was one of the best in the series.

    2.5 Oh, look who got an iPad! And is giving me a complex because how often do people randomly pop up to talk *me* into accepting money to interfere in prosecutorial cases that basically then involve me running into folks connected to prior things I had no business being involved in? Almost never, really.

    Good read. Bad guy kinda came out of nowhereunexpected. Ali does her usual good job in spite of obstacles being thrown her way. Glad that B. and his buddies were there to keep track of where she was even though Ali herself didn't really know. Would have liked a little more follow up on A. J. but that's ok too. On to the next one!

    I had originally giving this book four stars. I had to change that since it didn't creep into my thoughts at all during the day. Normally after reading a book for a couple of days after I will think about it, this didn't happen this time so it wasn't worth the four stars.

    Patrick
    This was another interesting read. I like these because they are set in AZ, near where I live. It took me a while to figure out who the guilty culprit was. Maybe you can figure it out faster that I did. Read it and let me know.

    Another good Jance read.

    Ali Reynolds is so much fun. Nice detective ideas. I love how the author's writing are not so gruesome. It's light and yet still interesting.

    Donna
    A solid quick read.

    Loved this title in the Ali Reynolds series. I think this was one of her best. Fast-paced, engrossing, interesting supporting characters. It was hard to put the book down. Kept me reading when I should have been putting it away to get some sleep.

    This series has grown on me. The use of the computer hackers is a bit much, but why not? Print.
