The first in a brand new series from the crime master himself, Ed McBain.

ALICE IN JEOPARDY is the first novel in an exciting new series. Each novel is set in a different location featuring a contemporary woman whose life or children are suddenly endangered. The woman must find in herself the resources to save both her children and herself.

Alice is a recently widowed young woman living in Florida with her two small children. Utterly devastated by her late husband's death in a boating accident, she is struggling to re-build her life. And as if life can't get any worse, her children are kidnapped. Surrounded by police fighting inter-departmental battles, Alice ultimately has to resort to finding and saving her children herself.

ALICE IN JEOPARDY is a truly gripping book, absolutely jam-packed with twists and turns, culminating in a totally unexpected ending.

MEDIA REVIEWS
McBain throws in switchback plot twists and false leads like the consummate pro he is and ALICE IN JEOPARDY is a terrific page-turner * TRIBUNE *
McBain back on zestful, inventive and utterly compulsive form ... so topical that it practically sprints from the page * LITERARY REVIEW *
McBain is a perennial cause for rejoicing * THE TIMES *
Brilliant stuff ... McBain's genius lies in his uncanny dialogue, his intelligent characters, clever plots and the way he can portray the human side of law agency procedures * GUARDIAN *
He's right at the top of the premier league of crime fiction * MIRROR *
McBain, the old pro, cranks up the tension to breaking point ... One can only sit back and admire * IRISH TIMES *
