Ali Reynolds is up to her ears. First of all, the intensive six-week course at the Arizona Police Academy wasn't designed for slightly out-of-shape women in their forties. Then, she's not exactly prepared for taking over the six a.m. shift of her parents' restaurants. And then, worst of all, Brenda Riley, an old buddy from her news broadcasting days, shows up seriously inebriated with a zany story about a missing fiancé she's never met. Before long, it becomes clear that Ali isn't just nursing the wounded pride of a spurned lover; she's protecting an old friend accused of murdering a predatory cyber-sociopath. Solid crime cracking; believable dialogue; and adeptly sprinkled local color.
