Publisher's Summary

Who is J. P. Beaumont? A very human Seattle police detective who is hardened but hopeful, dispirited but diligent - the kind of cop who has experienced personal tragedy but still remains faithful to his duty. When J.P. Beaumont and his new partner, Sue Danielson, are assigned the murder of an elderly woman torched to death in her bed, Beaumont finds himself distracted by Sue's difficulties at home. Distraction soon turns to terror as Beaumont and Sue find themselves caught up in a series of events that will leave them and their carefully constructed investigation shattered. For Beaumont, nothing will ever be the same.

Please don't make this the last JP Beaumont book!!

I am a HUGE fan of JA Jance. I love all her books. However, I am totally obsessed with the JP Beaumont series. I stumbled upon this great character(Beaumont) after all 14 books in the series had been written. The first book in the series was enough to hook me into the next 13 in short order!

I have watched JP Beaumont change work partners, love partners; drink too much, enter rehab, leave rehab -and have to deal with sobriety and all that temptation!

Jance has the ability to bring the reader (listener) into the story in such a big way. Of course, no great book can make it on audio without a terrific narrator-Gene Engene. He has an enticing, sexy, deep voice and yet he can do almost any other character. His other voices are quite believable-even the women-as hard as that is to accomplish!

I love Gene Engene and hope that he will once again appear as JP Beaumont. I believe there is still alot of life left in Beau, and I want him back. Thanks for a lovely series .

Breach of Duty

This is a fast pace nail biting story. Good descriptions of the Seattle area. This is my second book in this series by Jance and I will be looking for more.

Loved it

Where does Breach of Duty rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the case of J A Jance I think this is my favourite.

Who was your favorite character and why?

J P Beaumont

Have you listened to any of Gene Engene’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes I have and I really like his deep rich tones

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When His partner died and Beau connected with her son.

Any additional comments?

I cannot remember ( other than real life stories ) when a book has drawn me in to this extent, I'm not afraid to say, it made me cry.
