Author Information for J. A. Jance

[Author Picture]
Left Coast Crime 2003
photo by David and Vicki Ball

This is one of my MOST favorite authors. JA Jance has managed to create TWO sets of characters both appealing and believable. J.P. Beaumont is a police detective in Seattle, and Joanna Brady is a sheriff in Arizona, so you don't have to worry about WHY they get into the middle of crime scenes, it's their job. How Beau managed to become rich, and how Joanna managed to become sherrif may try your imagination just a bit, but once the premise is there, the characters are the kind you care about. By all means, read them in order, so you can follow the maturing process of the characters. Jance has two VERY good series going now, in addition to a "mini-series" [Hour of the Hunter and Kiss of the Bees].
