- Left for Dead: A Novel
- By J.A. Jance. Touchstone. 293 pp. $25.99.
- This police procedural ranges all over Arizona as Ali Reynolds is drawn into a whirlwind of murder when one of her police academy classmates is gunned down during what seems at first to be a routine traffic stop. Meanwhile her friend Sister Anselm is helping a young woman who has been beaten savagely and both victims are in a hospital in Tucson. Solid plotting and motivations along with good character development make this page-turner a thoroughly satisfying read. [ ]
