Overview

For the first time ever, Ali Reynolds and Joanna Brady, New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance’s popular series sleuths, join forces to solve a terrifying crime in this exclusive enovella that has everything you want in a thriller—page-turning action, breathtaking twists and turns, edge-of-your-seat suspense, and…Legos.

“A semi’s gone over the embankment.” The call wakes Sheriff Joanna Brady in the middle of the night, but what brings her fully alert is the rest of the story. The driver didn’t drift off to sleep and cross the center line—he was shot, multiple times, by someone with serious firepower. And when the truck crashed through the guardrail, its payload wound up scattered all over the road—boxes upon boxes of Legos.

Legos that are being tracked by B. Simpson’s security firm to reduce black market sales—and Ali Reynolds is just the woman to get to the bottom of the crime. She has the tech and the intel to follow the money (or, in this case, the Legos), which makes her a valuable asset to Joanna’s team. Soon these two strong women realize that they’re not just sharing a case, they’re kindred spirits—which is paramount, because the killer they’re up against is anything but child’s play.

As always, J A Jance delivers a great story line with interesting characters. Sherrif Brady catches the bad guys and finds out her life is about to change.

I wondered about a 69 page story. I love this author but this was not her best. Great idea to bring two characters together but very disappointing read.

A novella....ok....but 68 pages???? Don't fans like myself deserve a book which costs more than $1 per page? Ripoff! $.99

J.A. Jance never disappoints. This also was my introduction to Ali Reynolds. I will probably get around to reading that series after finishing the Joanna Barnes and J.P. Beaumont series. Keep 'em coming!

Although as a novella this read was too short, it was a great read.

This is one of the better short stories I have read. Despite its short length, the characters were fairly well-developed and the plot was relatively complex. Great novella! Stephanie Clanahan

A few (relative term) years ago, J.A. Jance wrote a standalone novel about a Los Angeles news anchor who lost her job when the crows' feet began to make an appearance. The newscaster, Ali Reynolds, was replaced by a younger less talented woman, and returned to her parents' restaurant in Sedona, Arizona – where, as one might expect from a J.A. Jance novel, she became embroiled in a murder investigation. At the end of the novel, Ms. Jance asked her readers if they'd like to see more of Ms. Reynolds in future adventures. Her fans eagerly responded. After 10 books in the Ali Reynolds series, Ms. Jance finally came up with a mechanism to bring Sedona's Ali Reynolds together with her famed Arizona sheriff, Cochise County's Joanna Brady. In “the novel No Honor Among Thieves” (which I listened to on 2 audio CDs), Ms. Reynolds travels to the outskirts of Sierra Vista on behalf of one of her husband's clients to investigate a truck crash – a truck hauling potentially collectible Lego box sets. A truck crash caused by a series of gunshots to the driver – bringing Cochise County's law enforcement along, as well. I enjoyed this novella – it is a good demonstration how tight plotting and description can effectively tell a story in a short period of time / number of pages. Yes, things like complicated subplots and red herrings are not possible in order to keep the size under 2 hours / 100 pages, but they aren't always necessary in order to properly convey an entertaining story. (NOTE: Fans of each series WILL find at least one subplot related to their character that helps to advance their lives and relationships.) An aside: J.A. Jance has a talent for conveying enough information about her characters to inform new readers as to the relevant aspects of their history in order to enjoy the current book without dragging things down for existing readers. I wish more authors would take a lesson from her on this – they typically have a habit of simply assuming that the reader already knows all about the character from prior novels. My rating: 5 stars. My recommendation: buy it. RATING: 5 stars
