This September, New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance is bringing back Seattle Investigator J.P. Beaumont for a “shockingly personal” case in her latest thriller, Sins of the Fathers.
Jance first introduced readers to Beaumont back in her 1985 thriller Until Proven Guilty. Since then, the popular investigator has gone on to star in 23 novels, including, most recently, Proof of Life, which was released in 2017. By publishing Sins of the Fathers this year, Jance is keeping with her one-Beaumont-book-every-two-years publishing schedule, designed to give the author time to focus on her other two active series—the Joanna Brady and Ali Reynolds franchises, respectively—as well.
Check out the plot details below.
Seattle investigator J. P. Beaumont is drawn into an intriguing, and shockingly personal, case in this superb tale of suspense from New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance.
Former Seattle homicide cop, J. P. Beaumont, is learning to enjoy the new realities of retirement doing morning crossword puzzles by a roaring fireplace; playing frisbee with his new dog; having quiet lunches with his still working wife. But then his past comes calling.
When a long-ago acquaintance, Alan Dale, shows up on Beau’s doorstep with a newborn infant in hand and asking for help locating his missing daughter, Beau finds himself faced with an investigation that will turn his own life upside down by dragging his none-too-stellar past onto a roller-coaster ride that may well derail his serene present. It turns out that, even in retirement. murder is still the name of J. P. Beaumont’s game.
J. A. Jance is the New York Times bestselling author of the J. P. Beaumont series, the Joanna Brady series, the Ali Reynolds series, and five interrelated thrillers about the Walker family, as well as a volume of poetry. Born in South Dakota and brought up in Bisbee, Arizona, Jance lives with her husband in Seattle, Washington, and Tucson, Arizona.
Another two-book year for Jance, The A-List, her 14th Ali Reynolds novel is set to come out on April 2, while Sins of the Fathers, the highly-anticipated new J.P. Beaumont novel, is slated for publication on September 24th, 2019—and is currently available for pre-order wherever books are sold.
