I would also read the book again, so I thought it was a good read overall. Something was bothering me the whole time I was reading, and I could not figure out until the very end what it was.

Betrayal of Trust J. This novel is entirely a work of fiction

Betrayal of Trust J. From New York Times bestselling author J. Jance, a suspenseful mystery from the creator of Arizona sheriff Joanna Brady and Seattle homicide detective J. Beaumont. At first glance, what happens on the video appears to be a childish game: a teenage girl with dark, wavy hair smiles for the camera, a blue scarf tied around her neck. This novel is entirely a work of fiction. The names, characters and incidents portrayed in it are the work of the author’s imagination. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, events or localities is entirely coincidental.

“Murder, teenage bullying, sleazy adults, and good police work add up to another fine entry by Jance.”—The Oklahoman

Betrayal of Trust is the twentieth mystery by New York Times bestseller J.A. Jance to feature Seattle p.i. J. P. Beaumont—and it is another surefire winner from the author the Chattanooga Times calls, “One of the best—if not the best.” When Beau discovers a snuff film recorded on a smart phone—a horrific crime that has a devastating effect on two troubled teens—his investigation unleashes a firestorm that blazes all the way up through the halls of Washington state government. Betrayal of Trust is certain to win this phenomenal crime fiction master (“In the elite company of Sue Grafton and Patricia Cornwell”—Flint Journal) a wealth of new fans while enthralling the army of devoted readers already addicted to the potent Jance magic.

  • I love J. A. Jance's several series, but the one featuring homicide detective J. P. Beaumont is my favorite. For some reason I can identify with him. He's had a tough life beginning with a childhood in poverty and no father. His mother was rejected by family when she discovered she was pregnant shortly after her sailor boyfriend died. His family refused to have anything to do with her either, so she struggled to raise him alone. (My childhood was lovely, thank you.)

    Only recently has he had a wonderful life, since he married Mel Soames, another homicide detective. They work for the Special Homicide Investigative Team with its unfortunate acronym, as partners. Their skills complement each other's.

    In this case they are assigned to a hush-hush problem in the governor's mansion. Josh, the governor's step-grandson, had been brought to live in the mansion after his mother died of an overdose. Obviously he has had a horrid life, and he's a troubled teen. The governor's two teenage daughters have differing reactions to his presence, but he ignores them anyway. He is caught coming home after a night out without permission. The guv confiscates his phone as punishment and discovers a snuff film on it. She immediately calls the Attorney General.

    Thus begins a story of two sorts of teens, the rich kids who get away with anything, and the poor kids from terrible homes who frequently are their victims. Also there is Janie's House founded by a woman who desperately wants to lift the poor kids out of the cycle of poverty they were born into. The house provides washers and dryers, computers, cell phones, and other necessities of modern life that those kids lack. It's meant as a safe place where they can improve their lives.

    I don't want to give away anything else because this is an excellent homicide case and our detectives are both shrewd and compassionate throughout. We also learn something surprising about Beaumont's background that will totally floor him.

    Highly recommended

  • This is the 20th book in the JP Beaumont series and I have read all 20. A lot of them have a great deal about Beaumont's personal life . A couple are a combination of another series' character (Sheriff Brady) and Beaumont . This book is not a combination of two series and it has a lot less of the personal . The investigation has plenty of twists and turns, the subject matter of bullying is an important one , and there is plenty of mystery . While I miss hearing about some of the characters in previous books , I loved everything else about this book . It is definitely one of the better ones and I would give it a 4.75.

  • The characters are well developed and believable. After the death of two teenagers who don't know each other, the duo detective team is at a loss. Why and who isn't easily evident. Gradually, they put the pieces together but there are twists and turns along the way. How can anyone rationalize the thoughts of teenagers? One major key to solving the deaths come near the end so don't even think about not reading the entire book. At the end, Beau has an occurrence that settles questions he's had since childhood. I plan to go back to earlier books of this series and meet Mr. Beaumont (aka Beau) and see what he was like in his prime. I can't wait.

  • "Special Homicide Investigation Team" Detectives J.P. Beaumont and his wife Mel Soames are members of this team of investigators in the Seattle area (that's right: They work for S.H.I.T.) As always, a few chuckles are thrown in with the serious stuff. Author Jance writes this series well, as a resident of the Seattle area herself, her descriptions of the locale are always right-on. Her Joanna Brady series takes place in the Tucson-Bisbee area of Southern AZ, where she grew up and is always fun to read along with the suspense in the Walker series, especially if you know the area. Our family has enjoyed all her series. We pass them around.

    Having read all the previous books featuring J.P. Beaumont definitely makes it easier to like this book. I can understand some of the lukewarm reviews if you are not at all familiar with the main characters and what they do, or did in the past. The main plot of the crime is the death of 2 teens, the subplot line revolves around an email JP receives regarding his father's biological line. New readers may not appreciate this part of it as much as us dedicated readers who have been privy to his feelings and questions about his biological father.

    As an author, I am sure it challenges Ms. Jance to provide enough background for new readers and yet not bore us faithful followers with stuff we already know, not an easy task. I think she did it well. My spouse wanted more action, as most men do. I find anything based on current technology fascinating, and love all the detailed husband/wife interaction between JP and Mel, his partner at work and home. Readers will find it easy to relate to how men and women differ in how we think, our habits, how we do things. JP's intimidation by today's new techy gadgets realistically defines many men (even women) his age.

    The first half is slower than most of her books have been, but it does pick up in the second half. This isn't a fast-paced crime thriller, but more of a puzzle we get intrigued by. I enjoyed the plot lines based on current technology and the issues we face with teens, with picture texting and family issues. It was right up to date what-with cyber-bullying as one of the plot lines. I found it interesting and believable, and with a good message for parents making their children accountable for their actions. I look forward to the next one with JP, and his associates at S.H.I.T.
