Fire and Ice, a Beaumont and Brady case Signed by JA Jance

Don't miss your first edition of Fire and Ice, a Beaumont and Brady case Signed by JA Jance

JP Beaumont is sucked into a case over east of Seattle where SHIT (Special Homicide Investigation Team) faces the murders of six young woman, bound, wrapped in blue tarps, their teeth pried out, and doused in gasoline before being set on fire.

Sheriff Joanna Brady works a Cochise County murder where the elderly caretaker of an ATV park has been run over by multiple vehicles and left to die.

The two investigations draw Beau and Brady into the same orbit. But to the satisfaction of the many Jance fans, the book is laced with the on-going lives of the two and the support cast for each. There's a real sense of family (two, actually) here, of laying to rest the past, and with humor.

"A gripping tale that's easily one of [Jance's] best." (Publishers Weekly (starred review) )

"Clever story...Fans of both characters will be pleased." (Booklist )

  1. Brady and Beaumont--What a combination! It is a fast moving enjoyable read.
    I would NOT recommend taking this book to the pool as there is too much going on. You can't pay attention to the goings on at the pool and the book, too.
    I bought the book the day it came out and had an enjoyable afternoon and evening with Brady and Beaumont and a good mystery.
