Publisher's Summary

J. P. Beaumont and Brandon Walker, two of New York Times best-selling author J. A. Jance's most acclaimed series characters, join forces for the first time in one of the most suspenseful works of her career.

Years ago Amos Warren, a prospector, was gunned down out in the desert, and Sheriff Brandon Walker made the arrest in the case. Now the retired Walker is called in when the alleged killer, John Lassiter, refuses to accept a plea deal that would release him from prison with time served. Lassiter wants Brandon and The Last Chance to find Amos' real killer and clear his name.

Sixteen hundred miles to the north in Seattle, J. P. Beaumont is at loose ends after the Special Homicide Investigation Team, affectionately known as S.H.I.T., has been unexpectedly and completely disbanded. When Brandon discovers that there are links between Lassiter's case and an unsolved case in Seattle, he comes to Beau for help.

Those two cases suddenly become hot when two young boys from the reservation, one of them with close ties to the Walker family, go missing. Can two seasoned cops, working together, decipher the missing pieces in time to keep them alive?

    Story
    "A Good Walker Mystery"

    I enjoyed the story but feel the inclusion of J P Beaumont was just a way to get readers of that series to buy this book.
    I would rather have waited another year for a Beaumont novel. With little more than a chapter's involvement, I was left wanting a Beaumont story.

    "Painful to follow"

    Could not even finish the book. Attempt to educate on historical Native American customs overshadows and takes away from becoming engaged in a weak story line. Very disappointed.

    "Not even if it was free"

    This book was so bad I could barely get through it! The narrator was so monotone that you could not keep up with the back-and-forth timeline of the story. I had to return the book it was that bad.

    Story
    "A Cold Case Heats Up"

    In this book J. A. Jance has her two semi-retired detectives working together, J. P. Beaumont of Seattle Washington and Bandon Walker a former Arizona sheriff whose adopted daughter is a member of the Tohono O’odham people. Jance has woven facts and legends of the Tohono O’odham people into the story. I noted the similarities of the folklore story and the current story Jance was telling. I enjoy reading about the Tohono O’odham mythology.

    The current story is about John Lassiter who was convicted of killing Amos Warren, a prospector. Lassitor has refused a plea deal that would release him from prison with time served. Lassiter wants Brandon Walker and the Last Chance to find the real killer. Walker contacts J. P. when he discovers a link between Lassiter’s case and an unsolved case in Seattle.

    The book is well written, interesting Native American folklore, suspenseful, fast paced and entertaining.

    Story
    "Very disappointing"
    What disappointed you about Dance of the Bones?

    Very disappointing if you are expecting more than a cameo appearance by JP. Story bounces around a lot. I would love to see some more books with JP, but as a main character, maybe with another homicide job.

    Story
    "Just ok"
    If you could sum up Dance of the Bones in three words, what would they be?

    not very specail


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    seemed too close to microphone....distorted at times.


    Any additional comments?

    I like how the author combined JP Beaumont and Brandon Walker together in a story. That was cool. I did not like every chapter beginning with a part of some Indian tale. A bit boring. I would have skipped those parts but not easy to do in an audio book. In spite of this, the was fast paced book and mostly held my interest.

    "more walker than Beaumont"

    I had to stop and start this one a few times. this was more walker than anything and I was a bit lost. JP had about 5 minutes in this story. even so I didn't really care for the story. it was a bit obvious. I still enjoy jance books I'll just stick to JP.

    "Struggled with the story. Too much jumping around"

    The plot took a long time to get into with all the jumping around. Then it wrapped up too quickly and left me feeling unsatisfied

    "Wonderful Interweaving of Native American Stories"

    I particularly enjoy Jance's Joanna Brady stories of Arizona but the interweaving, so naturally, of the Native American folklore was my favourite part of this book. I hope Lonnie is a regular in the Brandon Walker novels. It reminds me of Tony Hillerman's wonderful mysteries.

    "Classic Jance"

    Tying characters together from other series was an awesome touch. It made reminisce about previous stories.
