Overview

A gripping tale of hatred, lies, and deadly tradition featuring Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont.

The blood at the scene belies any suggestion of an “honorable death.” Yet, to the eyes of the Seattle police, a successful Japanese software magnate died exactly as he wished—and by his own hand, according to the ancient rite of seppuku. Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont can’t dismiss what he sees as an elaborate suicide, however, not when something about it makes his flesh crawl. Because small errors in the ritual suggest something darker: a killer who will go to extraordinary lengths to escape detection—a fiend with a less traditional passion . . . for cold-blooded murder.

Starts off a little slower but ends up a gratifying novel as usual. Det. J. P. Beaumont is very likeable!

Jance has done it again. A series of believable and touching characters with all too human foibles in a real life situation. Learn a bit about Japanese American Internment during WWII, as you follow J.P. Beaumont through the twists and turns of an unraveling mystery. Coming back after a long absence, reading about Beaumont's adventures is like meeting an "old friend" again. Jance would seem to have a firm grasp of the process of police investigations and the "dog eat dog" world of competitive business. Combining that with a comfortable and humorous writing style, makes for a novel that is hard to put done.

Well structured tale. Enjoyable. I would have deleted the last sentence, however, and ended with the one before. We can draw our own conclusions and ¿gratitude¿ is much stronger than ¿him¿.

I have yet to be disappointed by any of J.A. Jance's J.P Beaumont series books. I am reading one every week now. What I would add about this particular book is that you can even be exposed to learning things about other cultures in Ms. Jance's books. "Beau" lives in my imagination because Ms. Jance has brought him to life.

As expected, this was another great read in the Beaumont series. All the familiar characters and new, a great story with an enticing as well as mixed theme that surprisingly worked really well. Worth the read and money, as usual.
