The New York Times bestselling author of Edge of Evil is back with another masterful thriller featuring Ali Reynolds, an ex-television journalist who finds herself in a twisted web of mystery and murder.
Fired from her dream job as a Los Angeles new anchor and still recovering from the truth about her cheating husband, Ali is content to lick her wounds far away in Sedona, Arizona. But before she can leave the past behind, she must return to L.A.: her ex, Paul, is in a hurry for a divorce so he can marry his very young, very pregnant fiancee. But the day before the final proceedings, Paul’s bound and broken body is found in the Palm Springs desert. Ali finds herself the sole heir to his wealthy estate – and the prime suspect in his brutal murder. As the evidence piles up against her, she must navigate a torturous path strewn with danger – and bodies – to expose the real cold-blooded thriller.
Web of Evil is the first book I’ve read by J. A. Jance and I intend to read more by this author. Web of Evil was a very thrilling, suspenseful read. I’ve noticed other reviews that classify the book as “Hokey” but I thoroughly enjoyed reading of Ali’s adventures.
The last thing Parker Chase expected to find after burying his murdered uncle was a cryptic letter from the dead man. Parker realizes that his death was far more than a robbery gone bad, and soon finds himself pursued by the very men who killed his uncle. Joined by his brilliant ex-girlfriend, Parker fights to stay one step ahead of a shadowy organization hell-bent on silencing him forever.
Desperate to discover why his uncle died, Parker realizes that he had uncovered information about a centuries old mystery involving America’s Founding Fathers. Soon both the CIA and police join the death-dealing group of murderers in the chase to capture Parker, who must run for his life while unraveling the greatest conspiracy in American history.
“A Patriot’s Betrayal” is a brilliant debut novel and clearly a 5-star read. This is my first experience reading Andrew Clawson’s writing, I must say it was extraordinary in every way; it inspires me to read more of his writings. The characters were well developed and authentically true to life. The story was incredible, realistic, and historically intriguing. “A Patriot’s Betrayal” did remind me of the movie “National Treasure” with Nichols Cage; maybe it was the similarities of the clues that lead Parker and Erika down the path to find the reason behind the murder of Parker’s Uncle Joe.
“A Patriot’s Betrayal” will keep you turning the pages long into the night.

inSyte is a paranormal thriller that will appeal to readers of Michael Crichton and Stephen King
It’s Tampa Bay and the year is 2020. Ex-Navy SEAL Mitch “Double” Downing discovers how to tap into the internet with his mind. His new inSyte provides transparent access to the sum of all human knowledge recorded since hieroglyphics. More than mere information – Mitch can see into men’s hearts and be all places at all times (easy in an ‘always on’ surveillance society with fourth generation tweets). Sort of like God.
But inSyte has ideas of its own as the software exposes a politician’s “divine” plan that will unwittingly slaughter millions of people. Is killing the man the only way to prevent Armageddon? The politician’s daughter would probably disagree. And she happens to be the love of Mitch’s life. Losing Kate would be too damn much collateral damage.
At the center of the conflict is a wolf-like killer who will stop at nothing to murder the ex-Navy SEAL.
And Mitch must come to grips with inSyte’s dark side – a dominating addiction that soon controls his thoughts and places him on a steep slide to self destruction.
Futuristic techno-thriller that has you wondering if the future is headed for 100% internet/micros.
While reading inSyte I was intrigued with the futuristic/paranormal structure that was intertwined with the military training characteristics that completely engulfs you and takes you into the future of the cyber world. You will be totally entertained and wonder if our future is headed in this same direction.
