    "Breach of Duty"

    This is a fast pace nail biting story. Good descriptions of the Seattle area. This is my second book in this series by Jance and I will be looking for more.

    "Please don't make this the last JP Beaumont book!!"

    I am a HUGE fan of JA Jance. I love all her books. However, I am totally obsessed with the JP Beaumont series. I stumbled upon this great character(Beaumont) after all 14 books in the series had been written. The first book in the series was enough to hook me into the next 13 in short order!

    I have watched JP Beaumont change work partners, love partners; drink too much, enter rehab, leave rehab -and have to deal with sobriety and all that temptation!

    Jance has the ability to bring the reader (listener) into the story in such a big way. Of course, no great book can make it on audio without a terrific narrator-Gene Engene. He has an enticing, sexy, deep voice and yet he can do almost any other character. His other voices are quite believable-even the women-as hard as that is to accomplish!

    I love Gene Engene and hope that he will once again appear as JP Beaumont. I believe there is still alot of life left in Beau, and I want him back. Thanks for a lovely series .

    "Enough of Kramer!"
    What did you like best about Breach of Duty? What did you like least?

    There were multiple story lines, as there always are with J. P. Beaumont books. My least favorite, Kramer, including the extremely annoying voice the narrator uses for him.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. A. Jance again?

    Maybe. If Beau stays retired or accepts the job offer at the end of this book, I might consider it.


    Which character – as performed by Gene Engene – was your favorite?

    I enjoy the way he portrays Beau.


    Did Breach of Duty inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    A nemesis is expected in murder mysteries but to make that nemesis an ass-kissing, inept, politically incorrect co-worker gets old very fast. I'm pretty much done with Kramer and the rewards he gets, book after book after book, for sneaking around, spreading rumors and being a total jerk. Get rid of him!

    "Loved it"
    Where does Breach of Duty rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the case of J A Jance I think this is my favourite.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    J P Beaumont


    Have you listened to any of Gene Engene’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have and I really like his deep rich tones


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When His partner died and Beau connected with her son.


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot remember ( other than real life stories ) when a book has drawn me in to this extent, I'm not afraid to say, it made me cry.
