Until Proven Guilty
by J.A. Jance
Read: Sept. 23 – 26, 2018
Blurb: The little girl was a treasure who should have been cherished, not murdered. She was only five – too young to die – and Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont of the Seattle Police Department isn’t going to rest until her killer pays dearly. But Beaumont’s own obsessions and demons could prove dangerous companions in a murky world of blind faith and religious fanaticism. And he is about to find that he himself is the target of a twisted passion … and a love that can kill.
Review: This is the 1st book in the J.P. Beaumont series. Many years ago I randomly read the 13th book in the series. I was not impressed and never felt the desire to go back to the beginning or continue on from there with the series. I’m not exactly sure what made me acquire this book, but for whatever reason I did.
And for the most part, I did enjoy this book. There were times that Beaumont’s actions were really reminiscent of Stone Barrington’s …. apparently they both go temporarily insane when in the presence of a beautiful female ::eyeroll::.
I can’t say that I loved it, but I certainly didn’t dislike it. I am looking forward to reading more in this series. Maybe installment #13 wasn’t a great place for me to start all those years ago … but I am willing to give Beau another chance!
