Club Book Episode 41 JA Jance
Mystery phenom J.A. Jance is the mind behind not one, but three blockbuster series. Her corpus, stretching back to 1985, includes an impressive 60 novels to date. Jance’s popular and compelling protagonists include retired Seattle police detective J. P. Beaumont, Arizona sheriff Joanna Brady, and news anchor-turned-sleuth Ali Reynolds. Among other high honors, two books in the Beaumont series, Without Due Process (1992) and Failure to Appear (1993), have won Jance the prestigious American Mystery Award. Her latest is Clawback, the thirteenth installment in the Ali Reynolds series. In her most controversial case to date, Reynolds is determined to solve the murder of a man whose Ponzi scheme bankrupted hundreds of people – a plight that hits all too close to home for her. Clawback debuts in March 2016.
