Some brief overview of this book

It seemed like a most unlikely instrument of death: a ladys cobalt blue pump with stiletto heels. But the fact that it was caked with the blood of—and found damningly close to—a very dead man gives Seattle Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont a solid lead into a case of lethal theatrics and unsavory union doings. He has a pay stub, a matchbook, one corpse—and an unsettling feeling of more to come. And he has a murder weapon. All Beau has to do now is find the woman who fills it.

A few words about book's author

J. A. Jance is the New York Times bestselling author of the J. P.

Born in South Dakota and brought up in Bisbee, Arizona, Jance lives with her husband in Seattle, Washington, and Tucson, Arizona.

Biography

Considering J. A. Jances now impressive career — which includes two massively popular mystery series and status as a New York Times bestseller — it may be difficult to believe that she was initially strongly discouraged from literary pursuits. A chauvinistic creative writing professor advised her to seek out a more ladylike job, such as nurse or schoolteacher. Moreover, her alcoholic husband (a failed Faulkner wannabe) assured her there was room in the family for only one writer, and he was it. Determined to make her doomed marriage work, Jance put her writing on the back burner. But while her husband slept, she penned the visceral poems that would eventually be collected in After the Fire. Jance next chose to use her hard times in a more unlikely manner. Encouraged by an editor to try writing fiction after a failed attempt at a true-crime book, she created J. P. Beaumont, a homicide detective with a taste for booze. Beaumonts drinking problem was clearly linked to Jances dreadful experiences with her first husband; but, as she explains it: Beaumont was smart enough to sober up, once the problem was brought to his attention. My husband, on the other hand, died of chronic alcoholism at age 42. So, from misfortune grew one of the most popular characters in modern mystery fiction. Beaumont debuted in 1985s Until Proven Guilty — and, after years of postponing her writing career, Jance was on her way. As a sort of light flipside to the dark Beaumont, Jance created her second series in 1991. Inspired by the writers happier role as a mom, plucky small-town sheriff Joanna Brady was introduced in Desert Heat and struck an immediate chord with readers. In 2005, Jance added a third story sequence to her repertoire with Edge of Evil, featuring Ali Reynolds, a former TV reporter-turned-professional blogger. And so, the adventures continue! A career such as Jances would be extraordinary under any circumstances, but considering the obstacles she overcame to become a bestselling, critically acclaimed novelist, her tale is all the more compelling. As she explains it: One of the wonderful things about being a writer is that everything — even the bad stuff — is usable.Good To Know

Geographically speaking, Jance is equal parts J. P. Beaumont and Joanna Brady. She splits her time between Beaumonts big-city home of Seattle and Bradys desert residence of Arizona. Before her writing career become truly lucrative, Jance made little more than fun money off her books, and on her web site, she wryly recalls the Improbable Cause trip to Walt Disney World; the Minor in Possession memorial powder room; the Payment in Kind memorial hot tub.
