Publisher's Summary

Ali Reynolds investigates two shocking cases of victims brutally left for dead in New York Times best-selling J.A. Jance’s latest mystery-thriller.
When Santa Cruz County deputy sheriff Jose Reyes, Ali’s classmate from the Arizona Police Academy, is gunned down and left to die, he is at first assumed to be an innocent victim of the drug wars escalating across the border. But the crime scene investigation shows there’s much more to it than that, and soon he and his pregnant wife, Teresa, both fall under suspicion of wrongdoing.
Ali owes Reyes a debt of gratitude for the help he gave her years earlier when she was dealing with a troubled friend. When she’s summoned to his bedside at Physicians Medical Center in Tucson, it’s impossible for her to turn away. And knowing Reyes as well as she does, Ali finds it hard to believe that he’s become mixed up in the drug trade, despite evidence to the contrary. Upon arriving at the hospital, Ali finds that her good friend, Sister Anselm, is there, too - working as a patient advocate on behalf of another seriously injured victim, an unidentified young woman presumed to be an illegal border crosser, who was raped and savagely beaten.
Ali becomes determined to seek justice in both cases and secure safety for both victims. Together with Sister Anselm and a conscientious officer who won’t let the case drop despite pressure from above, Ali digs for clues to find the true culprits. Fast-paced, tension-filled, and intriguingly complex, Left for Dead is J.A. Jance at her riveting best.

I absolutely loved this newest installment

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

There are two stories blended together with Jance's usual skill and make an exciting read

What other book might you compare Left for Dead to and why?

Left For Dead is another great book by J.A. Jance, her seventh in the Ali Reynolds Mysteries. In all of J.A. Jance's books there is a strong sense of family, not just in the stories plot but in your reading experience. This sense of family is increased when you read another book in the series so my recommendation is to read others in the series as well.

What about Karen Ziemba’s performance did you like?

Easy to listen too

When friends come to the help

Karen Ziemba does a great job narrating this series. Ali is off to help a friend who was in the police academy with her and also helps her friend Sister Anselma (sp?). Meanwhile her parents sell the cafe, and she is trying to decide on the new winners of her scholarship. It was nice to learn from this story what is going on with characters from previous stories in the series such as the last recipients of the scholarship and other fellow police academy students. The attempted murder of Jose the sheriff deputy, the murder of the postman and a rancher lead us on a tangled web to discover who did it. Over all it is a pleasant visit with friend in the series but I wish Ali would get back on the job at the Sheriff department it helped stabilize the story.
