Edge of Evil by J. A. Jance

Review by Dawn Dowdle

Alison Reynolds is fired after her late night newscast.  She doesn't even get to tell her viewers good-bye.  Frustrated with the executives wanting a "younger face," she decides to sue.  Her husband, one of the executives, tells her that would not be a good move.  Once she finds out he has been cheating on her, she doesn't listen to his advice.  Matter of fact, she starts divorce proceedings as well.

When she is called back home to Sedona, AZ, due to the death of her childhood friend, she doesn't believe that her friend committed suicide.  She begins to talk to people and look into what her friend had been going through before her death. 

Ali's son talks her into starting an online blog to be able to say good-bye to her viewers and it soon turns into therapy for others like her. 

Ali also helps out her parents who run the Sugarloaf CafĂ© when her father is injured and can't work. 

She soon begins getting threatening posts.  Too late she realizes she has given a lot of personal information over the web.   

Can she uncover the truth about her friend's death and stay safe from the person threatening her? 

I hope this book becomes a new series for author J. A. Jance.  I really like Ali and would love to read about her again and again. 

Ali is a well-written character.  The settings really lend themselves to this story.  The plot is wonderfully constructed. 

I devoured this book in two days because I just couldn't put it down.  I highly recommend it.
