The Seattle that Beau knew as a young policeman is disappearing. The city is awash in the aromas emanating from a glut of coffee bars, the neighborhood outside his condo building has sprouted gallery upon gallery, and even his long cherished diner has evolved into a trendy eatery for local hipsters.But the glam is strictly surface, for the grit under the city's fingernails is caked with blood. Beau and his new partner Sue Danielson, a struggling single parent, are assigned the murder of an elderly woman torched to death in her bed. As their investigation proceeds, Beau and Sue become embroiled in a perilous series of events that will leave them and their case shattered -- and for Beau nothing will ever be the same again.

From Our Editors

Beau misses the Seattle he knew as a young cop. Now the city is overrun with coffee bars, galleries and trendy eateries. The glamour is strictly superficial, masking the blood and grit beneath. Beau and his new partner, struggling single parent Sue Danielson, investigate the murder of an old woman who burned to death in her bed. Beau and Sue soon find themselves drawn into a dangerous series of events that will tear them and their case apart in J.A. Jance’s thrilling J.P. Beaumont Mystery: Breach of Duty.  

Editorial Reviews

"As always, Jance paints a vibrant picture, creating characters so real you want to reach out and hug--or strangle--them. The dialogue rings true, and the cases unravel in an interesting, yet never contrived way." (Cleveland Plain-Dealer)
