"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"-- Provided by publisher.

this is ans Ali Reynolds mystery in which Stuary Ramey to brilliant but Asberger tech is the main prtagonist, a little out of her usual dealing with the rogue A.I "Frigg" useful in solving the mystery but also with a 'mind of its own and desparate to continue its existence.

This was a sequel to Man Overboard and continued the story of an A1 called Frigg. It was a great easy read.

Not my type of read. Water damage prior to my check out.

I've been reading J A Jance since the first Beaumont book, and look forward to reading about almost all of her characters. Her style of writing differs with each series, and Ali Reynolds is easily the most sprightly of her series'. That makes it quick to read, but she packs a lot of plot into this latest book. Computers, murders, and cartels as well as the usual stalwart characters make good story. Jance has the writing chops to make it all a very pleasant read. Now off I go to find the latest Joanna Brady novel.

I thought Jance made up all the computer terms and action in this story. Afterwards I Googled the terms and found out she really knew what she was talking about! Everything does exsists except 100% Frigg the AI as portrayed. Great story and educational lesson in computers.

Judith Lance always provided a reliably good read. Fresh ideas, nothing too taxing for the brain, likeable characters, and plenty of action. Jane books have been my travel companions since she started the Joanna Brady series way back when, and they are still the titles I choose if one I have yet to read is available. This one took me to Washington DC and back.

In this adventure, the team is still dealing with the aftermath of serial killer and brilliant IT mind, Owen Hansen. His AI, Frigg, looks as though she may be joining the team on a permanent basis if Stuart can eliminate her illegal abilities. Her personality, and yes she has one, adds something unusual to the team, and it is good to see the evolution of Stuart 2.0.
