A gripping tale of hatred, lies, and deadly traditionfeaturing Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont from the New York Times bestselling author of Betrayal of Trust

J. A. Jance

Dismissed with Prejudice

The blood at the scene belies any suggestion of an "honorable death." Yet, to the eyes of the Seattle police, a successful Japanese software magnate died exactly as he wished--and by his own hand, according to the ancient rite of seppuku. Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont can't dismiss what he sees as an elaborate suicide, however, not when something about it makes his flesh crawl. Because small errors in the ritual suggest something darker: a killer who will go to extraordinary lengths to escape detection--a fiend with a less traditional passion . . . for cold-blooded murder.

About the author

Biography of Jance, J. A.

J. A. Jance was born in South Dakota on October 27, 1944. She received a degree in English and Secondary Education in 1966 and a M. Ed. in Library Science in 1970 from the University of Arizona. Before becoming an author, she taught high school English, worked as a school librarian on a Native American reservation, and sold insurance. She is the author of many popular mystery series: J. P. Beaumont Mystery series, Joanna Brady Mystery series, and The Ali Reynolds series.

She won the American Mystery Award in 1992 and 1993 for Without Due Process and Failure to Appear, respectively. Both of these titles are books in the J. P. Beaumont Mystery series. At signings, Jance asks bookstores to donate a percentage of their earnings from her appearances to various causes. Her 2012 title Judgement Call made The New York Times Best Seller List.


Review by Library Journal (2003-11-01)

When a computer magnate supposedly commits suicide using Samurai methods, Seattle detective Beaumont becomes suspicious. The alleged suicide studied Samurai lore and would never have made so many mistakes in the ritual. Riveting procedural work from a talented hand.
