The 17th installment in the bestselling Ali Reynolds series by J.A. Jance, is Collateral Damage, where Ali finds herself under a huge amount of stress, as well as grief. Her father has recently died, and her husband has been in a serious and suspicious automobile accident on his way to a London business meeting, where he is hospitalized in critical condition. Because Ali is the most knowledgeable about the business deals at High Noon, their company, she finally agrees to take her husband, B. Simpson’s, place in London. Ali puts herself and the entire High Noon team in danger because of her investigation of the facts.

Jance has developed her characters well throughout the 17 installments, and Ali Reynolds, the protagonist, is a much loved character, who is believable as a real person. The supporting characters are also well developed. Jance is also a gifted storyteller and keeps her readers on the edge as the story unfolds with ups and downs. As is Janice’s style, the dénouement is very near the end, which makes for late night reading to find out what happens next. The novel is very well written, and easy to follow.

All told, this is an excellent addition to the popular series, and readers new to the series will definitely want to go back and read the previous novels in the series. This one gets five stars and is highly recommended.
