From New York Times bestselling author and "grand master of the game" (The Providence Journal) J.A. Jance, an electrifying new thriller featuring Ali Reynolds.
After taking down the man responsible for his best friend's death, Stuart Ramey thinks the case is finally closed. That is, until Stu finds himself left with a multimillion dollar fortune in Bitcoin in a desperate bid by Frigg, a rogue A.I. program created by the killer, to keep itself from being fully deactivated.
To sort out his situation and take Frigg down for good, Stu enlists the help of Ali Reynolds and the rest of his cyber security colleagues at High Noon Enterprises. But they are not the only ones who know about Frigg's existence.
Graciella Miramar, an unassuming accountant to all appearances, is actually the right-hand woman to El Pescado, the leader of a dangerous drug cartel. She'll do anything to get her hands on that program. With Frigg's help, Graciella hopes to take over her father's criminal underworld and become wealthy beyond her wildest dreams. But Stu--and El Pescado and his henchmen--may not be so easily defeated.
Written in J.A. Jance's classic "take-no-prisoners" style (Kirkus Reviews), in this thriller, Stu, Ali, and their team will come to realize that everything has its price.
Ali Reynolds returns in this suspenseful thriller featuring New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance's signature "fast pacing, surprising plot twists, and a strong, principled heroine" (Booklist).
Cybersecurity expert Roger McGeary finally has his life back on track after years of struggling with depression. But when he falls from the balcony of his suite on an all-expenses-paid cruise, the police quickly dismiss it as an accident. Unsatisfied, Roger's tough-as-nails aunt, Julia Miller, is determined to find answers and closure. By contacting Roger's childhood friend Stuart Ramey to help her solve the mystery of his fate, Julia unwittingly sets up a collision course with a serial killer.
Stuart, his sidekick Cami Lee, and journalist-turned-amateur-sleuth Ali Reynolds put the full resources of cutting edge online security firm High Noon Enterprises into learning the truth about Roger's death. With Cami on the high seas investigating the ship from which Roger disappeared, Stuart stays tied to his computer, locked in a battle of wits and technology against an unusually twisted adversary. When the heartless killer sets sights on Stuart, High Noon must race against time to save him and countless others.
In New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance's timely thriller, Ali Reynolds faces her most controversial mystery yet: the murder of a man whose Ponzi scheme bankrupted hundreds of people, and left them seeking justice...or revenge.
When Ali's parents lose their life savings to a Ponzi scheme, her father goes to confront his longtime friend and financial advisor, only to stumble upon the scene of a bloody double homicide. With her father suddenly a prime suspect, Ali and her husband work to clear his name and seek justice for her parents, as well as the rest of the scheme's suddenly impoverished victims. But if Ali's father is innocent, that can mean only one thing: one of the others is a stone cold killer.
Publishers Weekly promises "series fans will enjoy this highly personal case." Provocative and gripping, Clawback is further proof that no one writes suspenseful thrillers quite like J.A. Jance.
