Publisher's Summary

In the latest Ali Reynolds mystery from New York Times best-selling author J. A. Jance, Ali takes to the high seas with her husband.

Roger McGeary, a brilliant software engineer, has gifted himself with an upscale cruise in honor of his 40th birthday. When he falls to his death from the balcony of his stateroom suite, the incident is quickly declared a suicide. Only his maiden aunt, a tough-as-nails woman who runs a racehorse refuge, refuses to take "case closed" for an answer and turns to Ali Reynolds at High Noon Enterprises to look into the situation.

    Story
    "Imaginative"

    High Noon employee Stuart Raney is contacted by the aunt of Roger McGeary, a former high school friend and fellow misfit computer geek. She asks him for help to find Roger’s murderer. Apparently, Roger fell or was pushed off a luxury cruise ship. The authorities call it a death by misadventure but his aunt insists he was murdered. B Simpson and Ali Reynolds agree to help the aunt. Owen Hansen, a recluse obsessed with suicide, has hacked a psychotherapist patient data base and is tormenting patients/victims. Ali has to figure how all these ties together and solve the murder.

    The book is well written. The book features Stuart and B and their computer expertise more than prior books. The plot contains information about artificial intelligence which was interesting. The suspense builds throughout the story and the pace is steady. Enjoyed the trip around the Monterey Bay area that Jance provided. There were two educational topics in the book one on suicide the other about artificial intelligence.

    I read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible; the book is almost 11 hours long. Karen Ziemba does a good job narrating the book. Ziemba has narrated the entire series.

    Story
    "10 minutes was too much"

    One of the worse narrators I have ever heard. Wooden reading, nasal voice, and pauses in wrong places. Jance usually writes interesting, intelligent books. The Ali Whatever is not my favorite but the Joanna Brady books are great. I couldn't give this one a chance because of the awful reading.

    Story
    "The AI is the most interesting character"
    Would you try another book from J. A. Jance and/or Karen Ziemba?

    No


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

    Dull characters—I don't care about any of them except the AI.

    Plodding plotting—excessive repetition of "what we know so far." I HEARD YOU THE FIRST TWO TIMES.


    How could the performance have been better?

    DO NOT add an "accent"—and I use the term loosely—to a character specifically described as speaking unaccented English.

    DO NOT turn every dependent clause into a question.


    What character would you cut from Man Overboard?

    The human ones

    Story
    "Is this real about computers??"
    Would you listen to Man Overboard again? Why?

    yes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    moved well with many characters


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

    the action


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me wonder if this was true about artificial intelligence or are we back to the 2001 movie, but there are others with the same idea.

    "Surprisingly BAD"

    Up to now, I have enjoyed the Ali series. After several failed attempts, I was unable to finish this it was so boring. Most likely will not be purchasing Ali series in the future.

    "Predictable but still Good"

    The story is predictable because there is no need for guesswork. The narrator is tiresome with her strange mix of reading and characterization. Overall this audiobook was only OK.

    "Dreadful premise "

    Suicide manipulation? Awful! Smart people being obtuse or just plain downright stupid. Expected way more from this author.
