J.A. Jance's new series, begun in the New York Times bestseller Edge of Evil, continues with a powerhouse tale of suspense.

The highway from Los Angeles to the Palm Springs desert is parched, unforgiving, and deadly. In the suffocating stillness of a car trunk, a man -- his mouth and hands bound with tape -- awaits his fate. What possible enemy could be bitter enough to commit such a heinous crime? And when will the monster make another move?

Ali Reynolds is traveling that same blistering, lonesome highway, looking forward to putting her past behind her. But her cheating husband is in a hurry for a divorce, and the television network who wrongfully dismissed Ali for the sole sin of being over forty will face her in court as well. So Ali must return to the scene of these crimes. As she passes the site of a horrifying accident, she thanks goodness it's no longer her job to report the news. Until she finds out the news is her own. . . . For the victim is Ali's cheating husband, and soon she'll find herself the prime suspect at the center of a terrifying web of evil.

A twisted and lethal drama of heart-pounding suspense, Web of Evil asks the question: If hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, just what punishment could that fury unleash? Download and start listening now!

    " This is the second in the series featuring former TV anchor, Ali Reynolds. Tightly paced, full of twists. I did wish the setting had stayed in Arizona, though. "

    " J.A. Vance always writes page-turners! Although, it seemed to have 3 endings! Just when you thought it was over... Still, a quick, easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Review by Ann | 1/24/2014

    " For an educated TV Reporter, Ali Reynolds sure is stupid. This character must have been just a "Talking Head" not actually investigating anything in her former job. She takes crazy chances, acts so naive and trusting for a woman of her age and experience. Totally not believable. I was so disgusted with this character that I'm not sure that I will continue reading this series. "
