Dance of the Bones

Dance of the Bones is J. A. Jance’s latest novel featuring J.P. Beaumont and Brandon Walker. The Last Chance (TLC) group contacts retired Detective Walker regarding a 30 year old case involving the murder of Amos Warren. All of the evidence had pointed Walker toward Amos’ son who was arrested, tried and jailed. Now the case is being re-opened and there is pressure for them to find the “real” killer. The search leads Walker to reach out to Seattle investigator J.P. Beaumont. However, things only become more complicated when someone close to Walker is targeted. The cases are connected, the two just have to figure out how.

As always, Jance packs her book with action and suspense. This book was captivating and hard to put down. I really enjoyed how she wove in the Tohono O’odham lore in the story. It was interesting learning how some stories can only be shared at a certain time of year. I also enjoyed seeing how Walker and Beaumont interact with each other. If you have only read the Beaumont series or the Walker family books, you will still enjoy this novel. If you haven’t read both series this would be a great time to start.
