Editorial Reviews

Review

“Jance satisfies fans of both series with an energetic plot resplendent with believable twists, leaving readers eager for Beaumont and Walker’s next outing.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review) on DANCE OF THE BONES)

From the Back Cover

Prospector Amos Warren and Big Bad John Lassiter, his young protégé, were as close as father and son until a violent argument tore them apart. The next day, Amos disappeared, never to be seen again. Years later, his bones were found in the desert. All signs pointed to John Lassiter, and Detective Brandon Walker made the arrest in the case. 

Now, more than four decades later, the retired Walker is called back to look into the killing. Lassiter’s daughter, Amanda Wasser, wants Brandon and TLC to find Amos’s “real” killer and clear her father’s name. 

Brandon Walker’s search to find the truth about Amos’s killer eventually leads to an unsolved murder that could be connected to the case. Then Brandon  gets in touch with crack investigator J. P. Beaumont. Soon, these seasoned detectives must pool their personal and professional expertise when someone close to Brandon falls into the hands of a cold-blooded killer involved in a recent multiple homicide— who may also hold the key to the cold case

“Highly entertaining…an energetic plot resplendent with believable twists, leaving readers eager for  Beaumont and Walker’s next outing.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

This book deserves only 2.5 stars. Beaumont, who is my favorite of all of Jance's characters, plays a secondary role in this novel. He does not share equal time with Brandon. The parts where Beaumont appears are the best. The rest, in my opinion, was mediocre. Far too much about Native American legend. Slow moving. I could not finish this book.my recommendation to Jance...pair Beaumont with Brady, if you must. However, I would prefer reading a book totally about Beaumont.

Normally, I enjoy reading J.A. Jance's novels. This time was the exception. There were so many back stories is was hard to keep track of the plot or characters. Janice was telling the reader rather than showing.

I would have never thought she wrote this one! I had to force myself to finish it, The booked bounce back and forth between
decades and what happened/was happening it was hard to stay interested, then all the Indian Lore, I just skipped those parts competely. There is nothing wrong with that subject, but the description should have included it, as I wouldnt have purchased the book if it it,
The story had like 5 different books thrown together and written so poorly, I am just shocked.

It wont stop me from purchasing her future books, but I might start reading the sample first, rather than just pre-ordering

This book is almost painful to read. I've been a Jance/Beaumont fan for many years, and like many others, thought I was buying her next Beau novel. Wrong. He's barely involved. Just trying to keep all the characters straight - multiple generations yet - was a struggle. Add to that the pointless indian lore, and the result is a disjointed, poorly written, boring book. Not up to her usual high level.

I am a big fan of J. A. Jance's books, and eagerly anticipated this one. Unfortunately I have found it tedious and boring, especially all of the Indian lore. Granted I haven't finished the book, but normally I can rip through one of her books in a couple of days, and this one just doesn't hold my interest. So much unnecessary character history, sidetracks into Indian lore, skipping around from one set of characters to another, but no real linear plot. I may update this review when I finish the book, but so far it's thumbs down.

The novel is quite convoluted. In the end it did tie together, but getting there took far too much time. By bringing in Beau, Jance added an unnecessary layer of information where it was not needed. Adding in the native American storyline was also unnecessary. The backstory of the Walkers and Beaumont took a significant amount of the novel as well. Once the layers of fluff are pulled back there just is not much substance. I rated it a two, but I won't read another.

Don't know what happened with this book. I have read the entire JP Beaumont series and I put this book down after reading the 1st 100 pages. I could not get into it. The story line never developed and the book went no where.
