"J.A. Jance does not disappoint."

--Washington Times

The Chattanooga Times calls New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance, "One of the best--if not the best," and this classic suspense masterwork featuring Seattle investigator J.P. Beaumont emphatically proves the point. In Taking the Fifth, a gruesome and very unusual murder plunges the intrepid Beau into a lethal cinematic nightmare. Michigan's Flint Journal places Jance "in the elite company of Sue Grafton and Patricia Cornwell." Taking the Fifth, now in a Premium Plus edition, is an ideal opportunity for fans of the author's Sheriff Joanna Brady books to discover another side to the incomparable J.A. Jance.

Back cover copy

There are many bizarre and terrible ways to die. Seattle Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont thought he had seen them all--until he saw this body, its wounds, and the murder weapon: an elegant woman's shoe, its stiletto heel gruesomely caked with blood. The evidence is shocking and unsettling, even for a man who prowls the shadows for a living, for it suggests that savagery is not the exclusive domain of the predatory male. And the scent of a stylish killer is pulling Beaumont into a world of drugs, corruption, and murder to view close-up a cinematic dream at its most nightmarish . . . and lethal.
