Jonas Piedmont Beaumont has had a hard life and learned at a young age how hard life can be. Two marriages, a treacherous battle with the bottle, assorted midlife and moral dilemmas, and a few decades as a homicide detective haven't convinced him otherwise. When Beau and his new partner Sue Danielson are assigned the murder of an elderly woman torched to death in her bed, Beau finds himself distracted by Sue's difficulties at home. Distraction turns to terror as Sue and Beau find themselves caught up in a series of events that will leave them and their carefully constructed investigation shattered.

    " Breach of Duty covers Homicide Investigator P. J. Beaumont's last case as a Seatle police officer. Its really about two cases. In one a woman is burned after she is murdered and a fortune is found in her garage. It is exposed that she was not a nice person. The second case involves the bones of a Native American Shaman being used in a role playing game. A curse follows the bones and murder abounds. The story was well paced. "

    " OMG! The shockers were riveting. Big developments if you're a Beaumont fan. Read this one!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 woody | 2/7/2014

    " Beaumont is has 2 murder cases in this book. The first case has to do with arson/murder of an older widow with $300,000 in a refrigerator in the garage. The second case involves the bones of an Indian Shaman and the curse that follows those involved with his bones. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 2/6/2014

    " A good book but not outstanding. A fast read. Fun to read about places in Seattle area that I remember from when we lived there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra | 2/6/2014

    " J.P.Jonas Mystery. His partner Sue is killed "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deanna Hansen | 1/24/2014

    " J. P. Beaumont is a great character! And Jance creates the bad guys (even policemen) that you really love to hate! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Melendez | 1/24/2014

    " Jance's Beaumont character from Seattle was her first series and the first I read of her; enjoyed her first detective (male) his trials and tribulations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pr Latta | 1/22/2014

    " [audio - actually WMA] #14 in the JP Beaumont police procedurals, this title provides several transitions in Beau's life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maureen | 1/19/2014

    " J.P. Beaumont solves another case. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 1/19/2014

    " I love the JP Beaumont series from JA Jance, and this was a good one, a page-turner. She is not afraid to address issues. Beaumont's character is complicated and developed. Each book builds the character, though each book can stand alone, too. An exciting, well-written series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne | 1/12/2014

    " Maybe I should've started with the first of the series... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb Deshler | 12/27/2013

    " I didn't like the reader for audiobook. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha Newman | 12/26/2013

    " Good J A Jance--does anything else need to be said? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 11/7/2013

    " Very Good; Continuing character: J.P. Beaumont; Seattle detective and his partner examine a woman killed by arson who has $300k in her refrigerator; then an Indian curse seems to strike all who handled a shaman's bones, including JP's partner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara B. | 10/25/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenn | 10/4/2013

    " Being from Seattle, it was great to read the in-depth detail the author provides about Seattle and using it to tell his story. Although it wasn't the greatest book I've ever read, it was a nice easy read for sitting at the beach. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 10/3/2013

    " Another great jp Beaumont book. This one was alittle sad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy Crawford | 6/20/2013

    " Quite good detective novel. I've read some of her books before, and now I wonder why I haven't read more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 12/22/2012

    " Another good ol' J.P. Beaumont mystery. Indian folklore and mysticism don't do much to enhance a novel for me, but the emphasis on it didn't seem to hurt the movement of this particular plotline. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marjorie | 8/13/2012

    " J. P., PNW indian curses, and mean blackmailing 'hired help'. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dorothy | 7/30/2012

    " I was not expecting the ending in this book. I cried the last ten chapters. I leaves me wondering what will happen to J.P. Beaumont next. *snif* "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Monroe | 6/20/2012

    " One of my favorite JP novels! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 5/16/2012

    " Tape - J p Beaumont a good character, a little gruff aroundd the edges. One of the cases that he and his partner Sue Danielson are working involves the bones of an Indian Shaman. There is a curse on whoever handles the bones since they were unnaturally disturbed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wil | 5/11/2012

    " I was not impressed...other than the (slightly soggy) nostalgic Seattle flavor, this book has little to offer beyond the tiresome trite plot of the run-of-the-mill mystery. And it would be nice to find an editor who knows the difference between "hark" and "harken!" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 4/30/2012

    " Beaumont must get over Anne Corley! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna Mcnab | 4/19/2012

    " On his return from a trip with his grandmother to scatter his late grandfather's ashes, J. P. Beaumont and his partner, Detective Sue Danielson, are assigned to two cases, one the supposed accidental death of a woman in a fire, and bones found in a park. Another good J. A. Jance novel. "

    " I wonder if the top brass in the SPD are really as
    political and tone deaf as these books make them appear to be. "
