A thrilling mystery from New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance starring Ali Reynolds, who finds herself working against the police to clear two innocent names…with deadly stakes.

In Deadly Stakes, police academy-trained former reporter Ali Reynolds is contacted to investigate the grisly murder of a gold-digging divorcee on behalf of a woman accused of the crime. Lynn Martinson is dating the dead woman’s ex-husband, and she and her boyfriend Chip Ralston have been charged.

Ali is simultaneously drawn to the case of A.J. Sanders, a frightened teen with secrets of his own. He’s the first to find the body in the Camp Verde desert when he goes to retrieve a mysterious buried box hidden by his absent father—a box that turns out to be filled with hundreds of thousands of dollars in poker chips.

When the body of an ex-con is discovered near the first crime scene, Ali struggles to determine if A.J. and Lynn’s cases are related. Though her friends in the police department grow increasingly irritated by her involvement with the cases, Ali must stop a deadly killer from claiming another victim…before she herself is lost in this game of deadly stakes.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 1/14/2014

    " I'm still a fan of J.A. Jance -- they are a little formulaic, but they are nice quick reads and I enjoy them! "

    " Stayed up til the wee hours of the morning to finish~couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike French | 12/25/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 11/30/2013

    " Not as good as her other series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbe | 11/29/2013

    " 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 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 11/19/2013

    " I am a fan of Jance and have read most of her books. This one is not a disappointment, another good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorie | 11/15/2013

    " I like Ali Reynolds and her family. There was a good twist that I did not anticipate. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Terri | 10/25/2013

    " Read about half the book, never got to the stalker...that I realized anyway. Really boring book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meeko1971 | 10/10/2013

    " Although I loved JA Jance, the Ali Reynold's series is not my favorite. Ali can come off smug and a bit of a know it all. I've continue to read the series, but I wish Ali would mess up a bit or be absolutely wrong sometimes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 8/20/2013

    " What a great story!! I could not put it down. Stayed up until 1:30 a.m. this morning so I could finish it. Will have to read more by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lbaker | 8/20/2013

    " Enjoyed this book, the only complaint I have is there are so many characters that I really like, it's hard to fit them all in. This had Leland (my fave) and B (also like), but not enough of Ali's son, daughter-in-law, and parents. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 8/4/2013

    " Although I like her characters in other series better, I am getting to where I really like Ali Reynolds. At first I thought her too much of a flake but she has evolved into a decent character. This book was my favorite of this particular series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 6/17/2013

    " Reviewed this book for newmysteryreader and liked it a great deal. Gave it a 4.5/5.0 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JoDee | 5/24/2013

    " It was alright, but the series is more external than internal as it seemed in the begining, less time with the supporting characters (her family, staff) than in the previous books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara B. | 4/27/2013

    " I am always up for reading a J.A.Jance book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 3/6/2013

    " Strangely enough I only like one of JJ Jance's series - the Ali Reynolds one. This is a welcome addition - entertaining with the right amount of suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay Schenkel | 1/28/2013

    " Big J.A. Jance fan but the Ali Reynolds series is my least favorite. Entertaining but not a must read. "

    " Nice quick read but very interesting. "
