I think what I like best about the J.P. Beaumont series, and frankly all of the character series by J.A. Jance is that she allows her characters to grow, to mature as humans in ability, thought and emotions. That's not to say other authors don't. Michael Connelly does it particularly well with Harry Bosch. They age as we do and begin to face the reality of limitations and loss as we do, while still being vibrant characters. 'In Sins of the Fathers' J.P., has moved on into retirement holding a new license as a private investigator, which he really doesn't think he will be using. Through a favor for an old friend, he gets a case and through it finds he has to face a few sins of his past. Having lived in Seattle for about 30 years, it's plain to see J.A. Jance knows it well and presents it quite accurately. That makes J.P. Beaumont's life here all that more fun to read.
