Date: 
Tuesday, September 12, 2017 -
7:00pm to 9:00pm

Save the date for Tuesday, September 12 when popular author J.A. Jance appears in our Writers Present series at 7 p.m. at the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center, 24932 Veterans Way. Jance is a New York Times bestselling and award-winning mystery author with more than 20 million books in print. Her writing career spans three decades and includes more than 50 books in four different series—Ali Reynolds, J.P. Beaumont, Joanna Brady and the Walker Family, along with a volume of poetry.

Jance will discuss her latest book “The Proof of Life.” This riveting mystery follows J. P. Beaumont’s latest investigation, which strikes too close to home.

Before he retired, J. P. Beaumont looked forward to having his days all to himself. But too much free time doesn’t suit a man used to brushing close to danger. When his longtime nemesis, retired Seattle crime reporter Maxwell Cole, dies in what’s officially deemed to be an accidental fire, Beau is astonished to be dragged into the investigation at the request of none other than the deceased victim himself. In the process, Beau learns that just because a long-ago case was solved doesn’t mean it’s over.

Caught up in a situation where old actions and grudges can hold dangerous consequences in the present, Beau is forced to operate outside the familiar world of law enforcement. While seeking justice for his frenemy and healing for a long fractured family, he comes face to face with an implacable enemy who has spent decades hiding in plain sight.
