Betrayal of trust
Jance, Judith A.
Adult Fiction JANCE

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

In Jance's solid if a tad sentimental 20th J.P. Beamont novel (after Fire and Ice), the creaky-kneed Seattle detective and his third wife, Mel, both working for the Washington attorney general's unfortunately acronymed Special Homicide Investigation Team, have to probe a potentially explosive scandal: shortly after the governor's stepgrandson's cellphone was found to contain a snuff film, the troubled teen hanged himself in the governor's mansion. As Beau and Mel carry on their finely tuned good cop-bad cop routines and employ the conveniently accessible talents of techie associates, Beau counterpoints his dogged pursuit of "arrogant jerks," whose well-heeled parents extricate them from all scrapes, with his gradual bittersweet discovery of the father who died before his birth. Jance's denunciation of adolescent bullying and adult hypocrisy rings true, a testimony to the fundamental decency of cops like Beau and Mel who walk the mean streets the rest of their society would rather not explore except in fiction. 8-city author tour.
