New York Times bestselling master J. A. Jance brings back J. P. Beaumont -- one of the most enduring and endearing characters in contemporary fiction -- in a riveting story about a shocking, long-buried case of murder ...

After more than twenty years of distinguished service with the Seattle Police Department, Jonas Piedmont Beaumont is now working for the Washington State Attorney's Special Homicide Investigation Team or, as it's more commonly referred, the SHIT squad. But the more things change, the more they stay the same.

An eyewitness to a fifty-year-old murder has just come forward, and Beau has been hand-picked to lead the investigation. While undergoing hypnotherapy, a middle-aged nun unexpectedly recalls the grisly details of a cold-blooded killing she witnessed when she was five years old. Though fear has kept these memories repressed for half a century, they've now risen to the surface to cast a harsh light on a deadly plot that spans two generations. And Beau's caught in the glare, facing a ruthless band of coconspirators willing to go to any lengths to keep their secrets hidden.

Filled with all of the Jance trademarks -- heart-stopping suspense, deeply drawn characters, local flavor, intelligence, and humanity -- Long Time Gone is a crowning achievement in this bestselling author's career.

    " J.P. Beaumont, Seattle investigator for the Washington Special Homicide Investigation Team, must solve two family tragedies. One is a cold case from 50 years ago the state attorney general assigns to Beaumont. The only witness was a five year old girl who is now a nun, Sister Mary Katherine. When she began suffering horrific dreams caused by long-repressed memories about witnessing the murder of a neighbor, she contacts law enforcement in the hope that the crime can be solved. Just as Beaumont begins to make head way with this investigation, he is distracted when the former wife of his best friend, Ron Peters, is killed and suspicion falls on Ron. Beaumont is forced to choose between friendship and duty. Although his relationship with the Peters family forbids him from working directly on their case, he offers help to the detectives in charge. Meanwhile the complex plot Sister Mary Katherine, reveals a cover up that still threatens the reputations of several parties who were involved. They continue to do anything and everything possible to keep the truth from being revealed. "

    " I thought this was a really good book, as all of Jance's books usually are. This story was a bit different in that some of the trials that Beaumont was forced into were much more personal than some of his other past cases. As his team of investigators investigate Ron Peters, Beaumont is stuck between a rock and a hard place, being a close friend to Peters but being banned form the investigation due to conflict of interest. There is a but of a lack of action but as you reach the end of the book the action picks up fast and keeps you from putting the book down. "
