Book Synopsis

New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance delivers one of the most dramatically thrilling and powerful novels of her career—an emotional and resonant mystery that takes us deep into Seattle detective J. P. Beaumont's past and raises challenging questions about duty, honor, and the debt that is owed to those who sacrifice their lives for their country

Second Watch

Getting old is hell. J. P. Beaumont is finally taking some time off to have knee-replacement surgery. But instead of taking his mind off work, the operation plunges him into one of the most perplexing and mind-blowing mysteries he's ever faced.

A series of dreams takes him back to his early days on the force with the Seattle PD, and then even earlier, to his days in Vietnam, reminding him of people and events he hasn't thought about in years. Are they just drug-induced hallucinations? Beaumont isn't so sure. When tugging on those threads from long ago leads to present-day murders, Beau's suspicions are confirmed. Some bodies from the second watch just won't stay buried.

A masterful demonstration of J. A. Jance's superb craftsmanship, Second Watch is a thought-provoking novel that is also a poignant look at one of the most painful and divisive moments in our history—Vietnam—and a reminder of the staggering cost of war and the debts we owe to those who served then . . . and those who do now.

    I have read and loved several J.A. Jance books. This is a very touching story which makes the Vietnam war heroes - yes heroes - real people who serve our country well. Whether we liked the war itself or not, the people who fought were serving their country and we a a people who live here. The touching story of these people brings a wonderful truth to us about the years following that dreadful war.

    Midway through this awesome book I was sadden because I had the sense that J.A. Jance's writing skills were beginning to fade with age. There is a conversation with Ross Conners that does not take into account a previous (important) one that is crucial to the main plot. I thought she had forgotten about that conversation - which was crucial to the re-opening of the cold case, the crux of the mystery for Second Watch. It was only at the end of the book that I realized that the author was most likely just distracted by one of the sub-plots running throughout the book. The story of the soldier was very personal to her and his history completely factual other than the main character tie-ins. I am sure she was more focused on that storyline than the one that allowed her to classify the book under the Mystery Genre. Overall a very good read and I look forward to future books in this series.

    Second Watch is a masterful interweaving blend of decisions many of us make in life that rise to the forefront during stressful times. J A Jance is masterful as she brings J P Beaumont through solving past, haunting life experiences to closure while taking fact and fiction to new levels of reality. Great read.
