あらすじ・解説

For the first time ever, Ali Reynolds and Joanna Brady, New York Times best-selling author J. A. Jance's popular series sleuths, join forces to solve a terrifying crime in this exclusive novella that has everything you want in a thriller - pause-resisting action, breathtaking twists and turns, edge-of-your-seat suspense, and...Legos.

"A semi's gone over the embankment." The call wakes Sheriff Joanna Brady in the middle of the night, but what brings her fully alert is the rest of the story. The driver didn't drift off to sleep and cross the center line - he was shot, multiple times, by someone with serious firepower. And when the truck crashed through the guardrail, its payload wound up scattered all over the road - boxes upon boxes of Legos.

Legos that are being tracked by B. Simpson's security firm to reduce black-market sales - and Ali Reynolds is just the woman to get to the bottom of the crime. She has the tech and the intel to follow the money (or, in this case, the Legos), which makes her a valuable asset to Joanna's team. Soon these two strong women realize they're not just sharing a case, they're kindred spirits - which is paramount, because the killer they're up against is anything but child's play.

Arresting

I miss the Joanna Brady series. It has been sometime since Jance has written a new book in the series. I saw this novella that combines Joanna Brady and Ali Reynolds together and thought it might be a fun read even if it is a novella.

Sheriff Brady received a call in the middle of the night about a semi- truck going over the embankment. It is not an accident; the driver was shot. The cargo was Legos being tracked by R’s security firm. Ali is sent to investigate and to follow the money with all her high tech equipment. It is great to have these two work together; all we need now is to add Beaumont. Maybe this will be a new series.

The book is well written. The pace is fast. To fully enjoy this novella, the reader should be familiar with both the Brady and Reynolds’ series. One thing I like about reading J. A. Jance books is there is no profanity.

Karen Ziemba does a great job narrating the book. She is the regular narrator for the Ali Reynolds’ series. Ziemba was a ballet dance, actress, singer and did musical theatre. She now is a well-known audiobook narrator.

short and shallow -and I usually like Jance

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. Plot short and boring. And to say "not character driven" is an understatement. I realize it was meant to be short. I saw that it was before buying it. But I expected better from Jance, whom I normally like.

What was most disappointing about J. A. Jance’s story?

Not interesting,

What does Karen Ziemba bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Karen Ziemba is always an excellent narrator - her work on this is not a problem.

Was No Honor Among Thieves worth the listening time?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

I normally like both of Jance's female characters - Joanna Brady and Alli, whose last name I cannot recall at the moment. In this book, they meet and it's as if Jance thought this would be enough. But neither were represented in their fullness (their characters here were card boardy) and the plot was something I could have constructed in Jr. High school. I really hate to say that, because as I said, I usually like Jance's books with these characters, but not this time.

FAST MOVING

Would you listen to No Honor Among Thieves again? Why?

Yes, it was a very quick paced story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Joanna Brady - she quite a character - a tough sheriff, wife, mother.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Joanna Brady has a second cup of the coffee she loves and it tastes like crap. Then she begins to realize why.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to it in one sitting.

Just too short . . .

A teaser of what's to come. Love Joanna and Ali. Hurry and release their next adventure.

Disappointed

I have read/listened to many JA Jance books - Mostly Beaumont and a few Joanna Brady and Ali Reynolds. I was disappointed with this. First I didn't realized I spent a whole credit for a 2 1/2 hour "book". There was so much re-introduction of the characters (seemed too much detail for such a short book). The reader's narrative recalled silly romance novels that I happened to choose by mistake. So overall I was disappointed. However I am prompted to revisit the JoAnna and Ali books in my library and perhaps pick up a few more.

It was alright.

I love JAJance but this book was just a little too slow and just not up to her usual standards.

Too Short

Great story, the narrator was great as well. But it was far far too short.

Horrible narrator!

Hard to tell if the story would have been good with a better narrator, but the narrator made me hate this book. Other books by this author I have enjoyed.

Save your money or credit and pick a different book by this author.
