Betrayal of Trust
“Murder, teenage bullying, sleazy adults, and good police work add up to another fine entry by Jance.”
Betrayal of Trust is the twentieth mystery by New York Times bestseller J.A. Jance to feature Seattle p.i. J. P. Beaumont—and it is another surefire winner from the author the Chattanooga Times calls, “One of the best—if not the best.” When Beau discovers a snuff film recorded on a smart phone—a horrific crime that has a devastating effect on two troubled teens—his investigation unleashes a firestorm that blazes all the way up through the halls of Washington state government. Betrayal of Trust is certain to win this phenomenal crime fiction master (“In the elite company of Sue Grafton and Patricia Cornwell”—Flint Journal) a wealth of new fans while enthralling the army of devoted readers already addicted to the potent Jance magic.
Interesting continuation of Beau's story
The voice actor does a good job but I am still getting used to his interpretation versus the original voice actor.
While the ending is predictable I still found the story entertaining. The main story took you through two possibly connected investigations and made you wonder exactly how they were going to tie them both together. There were some unexpected surprises along the way.
Even this far into the story, J.A. Jance still finds a way to give us and Beau more insight into his family history. It adds depth to the character. I was glad to see his friend Ralph make and appearance again.
I would recommend this to anyone who has read any of Jances other books. For the most part you can even read them as a stand alone because there is usually enough recap to help you catch up.
