    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Revenge isn't the only dish served cold... Ali Reynolds's longtime friend and Taser-carrying nun, Sister Anselm, rushes to the bedside of a young pregnant woman hospitalized for severe injuries after she was hit by a car on a deserted Arizona highway. The girl had been running away from The Family, a polygamous cult with no patience for those who try to leave its ranks. Something about her strikes a chord in Sister Anselm, reminding her of a case she worked years before when another young girl wasn't so lucky. Meanwhile, married life agrees with Ali. But any hopes that she and her husband, B. Simpson, will finally slow down and relax now that they've tied the knot are dashed when Ali's new daughter-in-law approaches her, desperate for help. The girl's grandmother, Betsy, is in danger: she's been receiving anonymous threats, and someone even broke into her home and turned on the gas burners in the middle of the night. But the local police think the elderly woman's just not as sharp as she used to be. While Ali struggles to find a way to protect Betsy before it's too late, Sister Anselm needs her help as well, and the two race the clock to uncover the secrets that The Family has hidden for so long--before someone comes back to bury them forever. From the New York Times bestselling author hailed for her "inimitable, take-no-prisoners style" (Kirkus Reviews), Cold Betrayal forces Ali to confront the face of evil, and the women who are being hunted"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2015 February #2

A pair of problems needs the attention of Arizona sleuth Ali Reynolds. First, Ali's daughter-in-law, Athena, asks for help for her widowed grandmother in Minnesota, whose charges of being the victim of attempted bodily harm are discounted because of her age and possible mental deterioration. Then Ali's dear friend, Sister Anselm, involves her in something bigger. A young pregnant girl—trying to escape from a repressive polygamous cult called the Family—is injured in a car accident, and the nun is called to be the patient advocate for both mother and infant. Ali follows the money in both cases, although getting information about the Family is like turning over a rock and finding something ugly. Breaking up the moneymaking scheme at the center of the Family eventually involves Interpol and law-enforcement agencies on all levels, and ends with a bloodbath that leaves Ali and Sister Anselm with feelings of responsibility. Jance's tenth Ali Reynolds entry (after Moving Target, 2014) is more sobering than many, but with the well-drawn characters, brisk prose, and skillful plotting that mark this dependable series.

LJ Reviews 2014 October #2

The author of several New York Times best-selling series circles back to Ali Reynolds, called on for help by her new daughter-in-law, who's worried because her grandmother is being threatened, and by her good friend Sister Anselm, now tending a young pregnant woman badly injured in a hit-and-run after she flees a polygamous cult. With an eight-city tour.

PW Reviews 2015 January #2

Two cases engage Ali Reynolds and her new husband, tech guru B. Simpson, in bestseller Jance's lively 10th novel featuring the former L.A. TV newscaster now living in her hometown of Sedona, Ariz. (after 2014's Moving Target). The first one involves Ali's daughter-in-law, Athena, whose grandmother is being pushed off her Minnesota farm. The second begins when pregnant teen Enid Tower escapes from a secretive polygamous cult and is badly injured after being hit by a car on an Arizona highway. As a result of the accident, she gives birth prematurely to a girl. Sister Anselm, nun extraordinaire and patient advocate, attends to Enid and her baby in the hospital. The investigation of the cult leads to horrendous violence, which doesn't quite pass the believability test. Anselm's scenes—low-key but compelling—are the best thing in the book. But the prolific Jance knows how to tell a story, so series fans won't be disappointed. Agent: Alice Volpe, Northwest Literary Agency. (Mar.)
