Synopsis

“Any story by Jance is a joy.”

Chattanooga Times

 

Now fans of the enormously popular Sheriff Joanna Brady suspense series by J.A. Jance can discover another side to the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author. Until Proven Guilty—a riveting tale of the very worst kind of murder—marks the debut of Seattle Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont. This Premium Plus edition of Until Proven Guilty—the classic novel that put the incomparable Jance on the crime fiction map—indisputably proves that she truly belongs “in the elite company of Sue Grafton and Patricia Cornwell” (Flint Journal).

    Not the best in the series, but a killer ending

    PLOT OR PREMISE: Beaumont finds himself investigating the apparent murder of a little girl, five years old. When the investigation leads to the girl's home, and the cult that her mother is part of, things start to get a little weird. Add in the fact that he is still getting to know his partner, and the introduction of a rich and beautiful stranger to J.P.'s social and professional life, and the story starts to get a little odd. . WHAT I LIKED: I liked the woman in the story, and her obsession with those who murder little children. She shows up at the funeral, and you can vividly picture her arrival from the excellent prose. . WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The bits with the journalist are a bit stale in this book in the series, and some of the "getting to know your partner" tension is simply boring. Unfortunately, too, the "cult" comes off rather comical without any real depth as to why people might have gravitated towards this life. . DISCLOSURE: I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow him on social media.
