BookList Review

Credible Threat

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Grieving mother Rachel Higgins, who blames her son's death on a pedophile priest, turns her wrath on the Catholic Church, as represented by Arizona Archbishop Francis Gillespie. Anonymous threats soon escalate to a more desperate plan, and Ali Reynolds; her husband, B. Simpson; and the crew of High Noon Enterprises are brought in to investigate--and keep the archbishop alive. The plot, which hinges on a 70-year-old former homemaker turned vigilante becoming a criminal mastermind via the internet and shows like Forensic Files, certainly strains credulity, but it is somewhat anchored by real emotions of grief, guilt, and the comforting power of faith. Regardless of the lack of plausibility, longtime series fans will enjoy Jance's trademark fast pace and the tough but principled lead character. Numerous references to past cases and character histories may not make this the best choice for first-time readers of the series. Those wishing to start at the beginning can check out Edge of Evil (2006), the series debut.

Publishers Weekly Review

Credible Threat

Publishers Weekly

Is it possible to feel sympathy for a cold-blooded killer? Bestseller Jance pulls it off in her poignant 15th Ali Reynolds mystery (after 2019's The A List). Rachel Higgins has been going through the motions in the years since her grown son, David, died of an overdose. But after she realizes that David was molested as a teen by his swimming coach, Father Needham, at St. Francis High in Phoenix, Rachel carefully plots her revenge. Since Needham died of AIDS in prison after being convicted of multiple counts of pedophilia, Rachel decides to kill Needham's superior, Archbishop Francis Gillespie, for letting it happen. When the archbishop begins receiving anonymous threats, he asks High Noon Enterprises, a cybersecurity firm owned by Ali and her husband, B. Simpson, to investigate after the police dismiss the notes as not a credible threat. When B. has to go overseas, the case is left to Ali and her team of cyber experts. Depth of character compensates for some overwriting. Jance has rendered a masterly study of the effects of grief, rage, and the power of forgiveness. Agent: Alice Volpe, Northwest Literary. (June)
