Abstract:

Five-year-old Junior Weston was hiding in a closet the night his entire family was brutally slaughtered. He caught a glimpse of the killer's face, and now the little boy's life is on the line. The only one who can help him is detective J.P. Beaumont, but even Beau's dogged persistence and reckless courage may not be enough to save the boy and put the killer behind bars. Who could have killed Officer "Gentle Ben" Weston of the Seattle P.D.? Known for his unswerving honesty and kindness, Weston was a model cop. But his bulldog assault on the Rainy City's gangs earned him enemies in surprising places, and nasty rumors are starting to surface about his ties to the Bloods and the Crips. Enter J.P. Beaumont, a recovering alcoholic detective with a hot temper and a cold nose for clues, whose resolution to clear his friend's name results in a suicidal computer freak, a showdown with several steely-eyed gang members, and explosive revelations in the top ranks of the Seattle P.D. From the cobbled streets of Pioneer Square to the exclusive suburban villas of Beaux Arts, Without Due Process is a clever, fast-moving novel of greed, suspense, and astonishing courage, with one of the most humane and fast-thinking cops around. Full of the Jance hallmarks of breakneck plotting, vivid characterization, and intricate imagination, Without Due Process is a stellar display of imaginative talent and storytelling prowess.
