Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance delivers another pulse-pounding tale of suspense where no one is safe from a ... Fatal Error.

Ali Reynolds begins the summer thinking her most difficult challenge will be surviving a six-week- long course as the lone forty-something female at the Arizona Police Academy — not to mention taking over the 6:00 AM shift at her family's restaurant while her parents enjoy a long overdue Caribbean cruise. However, when Brenda Riley, a colleague from Ali's old news broadcasting days in California, shows up in town with an alcohol problem and an unlikely story about a missing fiance, Ali reluctantly agrees to help.

The man posing as Brenda's fiance is revealed to be Richard Lowensdale, a cyber-sociopath who has left a trail of broken hearts in his virtual wake. When he is viciously murdered, the women he once victimized are considered suspects. The police soon focus their investigation on Brenda, who is already known to have broken into Richard's home and computer before vanishing without a trace. Attempting to clear her friend's name, Ali is quickly drawn into a web of online intrigue that may lead to a real-world fatal error.

Review:

"Near the start of Jance's entertaining sixth Ali Reynolds thriller (after Trial by Fire), ex-TV anchor Ali agrees to meet Brenda Riley, a former news colleague, at a Peoria, Ariz., bar. Drunk and out of control, Brenda complains to Ali that she can't reach her fiancé, Richard Lattimer, whom she met online but has never met in person. Brenda hasn't even seen his photograph. The shadowy fiancé turns out to be Richard Lowensdale, a cyber stalker who starts intense relationships online, proposes marriage, then blocks the women's e-mails. When Richard is murdered five months later at his Grass Valley, Calif., home, Brenda, who uncovered his hobby and was exposing him to other victims, becomes the likely suspect. Jance keeps firm control of a believable yet complex plot that spins on contemporary issues of cyber stalking and the economic downturn. Spread over several months, the plot never stalls and leads to a logical and exciting finale. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Kaye, April 14, 2011 (view all comments by Kaye)
Once again J A Jance comes through with an edge of the seat mystery. Ali's old friend Brenda Riley turns up and is a mess. She has gotten involved with some man she met on the internet, is drinking heavily, and is living in her car. A long way from the news anchor she used to be. When Ali does some digging, she discovers that the man Brenda met is not what he seems to be. Brenda comes up missing and is the prime suspect in the murder of that man, Richard. I loved this book because Jance has done such a good job of writing that I really care about the characters.
