The book is well written and the plot twists and turns. The characters are interesting. There are a lot of flashbacks in this story. It is a story that Ali covered when she was a T.V. newsperson in Los Angeles and that has put her life in danger. Jance is su ...more
Dr. Edward Gilchrist is serving a life without parole prison sentence for murder. He has decided to take revenge on the individuals he feels had a hand in landing him in priso ...more
I love the character development, of good guys and bad. Great ending as well. Easy to see Frig taking a major role -- she's growing on us all. DNA and AI, yea!
Ali is great. I like that she did not get scared easily, even when her life was being threatened. She related and connected to everyone she met. Thus the reason she had made a good reporter. When it came to Edward; I could hear his voice loud and clear in my head. In fact, I could hear al ...more

The central story is interesting. In the 1980s, a fertility doctor/sociopath uses his own sperm and his wife's eggs instead of legitimate donor material and is found out and imprisoned. So he creates a kill list and sta ...more
The story is well crafted from the characters who have passion to find the truth. The Villains are dark and ripped from the headlines of news.
J.A. Jance is able to blend fact ad fiction weaving between characters who become more and more real as the story progresses. The author the ability to bring the world she created in technico ...more

In 2008 Dr. Edward Gilchrist is found guilty of murdering his wife and sent to prison for life. He created a list that includes all those he feels responsible for his sentence. He incl ...more
J.A. Jance has written dozens of mysteries/thrillers. Previous to this one, I had read just two of her works. This is a solid, fast-moving, albeit predictable story.
With the current interest in the use of DNA to determine ancestry, we are starting to see the funny things that can happen when artificial insemination is utilized. In The A List, a doctor whose practice is built upon artificial insemination engages in fraudul ...more

This story is good overall, but it contains a huge amount of back story. Too much back story. It also has rather too much repetition and, in places, editing errors. Details were changed in some places but not in others.
Again, I liked the overall story but the best section was the final third of the book. It was tough going getting to it.
I received an advanced reading copy from the publisher, through NetGalley, in exchange for an ...more

This is the first book that I've read by this author. The book is #14 in the series, but there was enough backstory that I didn't feel too lost. The story itself is a standalone one, so a reader definitely wouldn't miss out on anything if they wanted to pick up this book but had never read any of the previous thirteen books.
Part of the book is told in the present (for the book anyway) and part of it is told in f ...more

So many women struggle with fertility issues and see doctors like Dr. Gilchrist. It made my heart hurt that a doctor w ...more

I've been a fan forever and this book is great. Ms.jance is one of my favorite writers, my only wish is that she writes faster. This book captured my interest and kept it all the way through. She never does filler pages, which I detest. (I really don't care what is on the shelves of stores, nor do I care for background on characters that mean nothing). Her endings are always perfect as I also don't like to be left with questions. In all of her series I would advise to start a ...more
