Publisher Comments:

From New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance comes a chilling tale of suspense, where romance turns deadly at the hands of a man whose heart is filled with...

CRUEL INTENT

On a dating site, singleatheart.com, bored housewives can find romance with married men looking for sex without strings. But these married singles are flirting with more than just their vows. At the heart of this seemingly innocent service, a vengeful computer hacker is playing games with people's lives...and deaths.

Ex-television journalist Ali Reynolds just wants a break from excitement. In the midst of a remodel, the last thing she expects is a murder investigation that will stop the construction on her home. But when the savagely murdered body of stay-at-home mom Morgan Forester is found, Ali's contractor Bryan is the prime suspect. Bryan swears he has nothing to do with his wife's murder — but as the investigation progresses Ali seems to be the only resident of Sedona who believes him.

Determined to prove Bryan's innocence, Ali unknowingly lands herself directly in the path of a calculating killer. In a world filled with encrypted computer traps and life-threatening lies, will Ali be able to decode the actions of a ruthless man determined to destroy women — before he uses his wicked website to find her?

Review:

"As if remodeling an old mansion near picturesque Sedona, Ariz., isn't stress enough for Ali Reynolds, the plucky former TV newscaster must also deal with cybernetic lonely hearts, frustrated lust and murder in bestseller Jance's uneven fourth Ali Reynolds thriller (after Hand of Evil). After serial killer Peter Winter claims his fifth victim, who happens to be the unfaithful wife of Ali's contractor, Bryan Forester, homicide detective Dave Holman suspects Bryan did it. At considerable personal risk, Ali has to clear Bryan in order to get her house ready for Thanksgiving dinner with her gossipy, meddling mother, Edie; her son, Chris; Chris's amputee fiance; sometime boyfriend Holman; and the rest of her cozily predictable entourage. A too conveniently noted license plate number and some unlikely Taser-wielding by Edie undermine credibility. Still, Jance's trademark breathless pace compensates for stale situations and shallow characterizations. Author tour. (Dec.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Jance has honed her talent for writing entertaining, accessible mysteries that readers can zip through in a weekend....Consider this as mostly a pleasant diversion for backyard or beach rather than a thrilling page-turner." Booklist

Synopsis:

Ex-anchorwoman Ali Reynolds finds herself in the midst of more than just a house renovation when the project is interrupted by a brutal murder... and the killer may be close to home.
