Author J.A. Jance will discuss and sign her new book “The A List” at noon Friday, April 5 at Palm Ridge Recreation Center, 13800 Deer Valley Drive, Sun City West, and 3 p.m. Saturday, April 6 at Foothills Branch Library, 19055 N. 57th Ave., Glendale.
In Ms. Jance’s new novel, the broadcast-journalist-turned-amateur-sleuth character Ali Reynolds learns that no good deed goes unpunished—as a threat from the distant past jeopardizes everything in her future, a news release states. When Dr. Edward Gilchrist’s fertility practice hits hard times following his costly divorce, he starts cutting corners, secretly serving as the clinic’s sole “donor.” Years later, former client Alexandra Munsey’s 21-year-old son needs a kidney transplant, and the desperate mother enlists Los Angeles TV anchor Ali’s help to find any potential blood relatives. After the Munsey family’s plea airs across multiple newscasts, a half-brother surfaces and proves a willing match for organ donation.
Now living in Sedona, Ali has picked up the pieces of a career and marriage that fell apart, but must upend her new life in a race to save herself and the others inked onto Gilchrist’s deadly scorecard.
In addition to her Ali Reynolds series, Ms. Jance is the New York Times bestselling author of the J.P. Beaumont series, the Joanna Brady series, a series of Southwestern thrillers featuring the Walker family, and more.
Born in South Dakota and brought up in Bisbee, she lives with her husband and their two dogs in Seattle and Tucson.
