"Justice Denied"

J.A. Jance's latest J.P. Beaumont novel is Justice Denied.

She applied the Page 69 Test to the new book and reported the following:
The page 69 test for Justice Denied will show readers that J.P. Beaumont is a character with a history. His job as a homicide detective for Seattle PD is long in the past in this book but his connections to the people he worked with there are still very much up and running. His long term problem with departmental brass, one of the primary reasons he left Seattle homicide, is still part of his life. This is the third book with him working as for the Washington State Attorney General as part of the Special Homicide Investigation Team, often referred to as S.H.I.T. Beau’s sardonic sense of humor is also readily apparent in his dealings with other people and in the way he deals with life.

Beau is very much a regular guy. The two of us have been together as author and character for twenty-five years and for eighteen separate books, starting with 1985's Until Proven Guilty. If readers like Beau in Justice Denied, they'll most likely like him in the others books as well. Fortunately for them and for me, there's a whole world of backlist titles out there -- all of them available in paperback and E-book editions.
Visit the publisher's website to read or listen to an excerpt from Justice Denied, and check out J.A. Jance's official website and her blog.
