Bestselling author J.A. Jance has written four different series in the Mystery genre. Her Joanna Brady Mysteries and the Ali Reynolds Novels have both been previously reviewed here on ReviewThisReviews!
The third series is the J.P. Beaumont Novels. My review today is of the newest Beaumont suspense novel titled Nothing to Lose.
Years ago, J.P. Beaumont was a homicide detective with the Seattle PD. His partner, Sue Danielson, was murdered by her ex-husband when he came after her in her home. Terrified, Sue's teenage son frantically called Beaumont for help. Beau urged Jared to grab his younger brother and leave the house. As a result, Beau's plea and Jared's quick action saved the two boys from their father's murderous rage.
Twenty years later, Jared reappears in Beau's life seeking help again. His younger brother, Chris, is missing. Beau, who is now a retired cop working as a private investigator, and still haunted by the events of that tragic night, doesn't hesitate to take the case.
Beaumont follows a lead to the wilds of wintertime Alaska where he finds a tangled web of family secrets and where a killer with nothing to lose is waiting to kill again.
The entire J.P. Beaumont Mystery series by J.A. Jance is excellent, as are all her books. I am a huge fan of her writings. The Beaumont series is a continuing one, but each story in the series can stand alone as well. Therefore, you do not need to begin with Book #1 to enjoy the story in Nothing to Lose. But, that said, I do highly recommend reading the entire series in order to follow the adventures of Beau from the first book to this latest one.
