Club Book: J.A. Jance

Club Book: J.A. Jance

Join us in the Central Park Amphitheater at R.H. Stafford Library in Woodbury for Club Book with J.A. Jance! Mystery phenom J.A. Jance is the mind behind not one, but four blockbuster series. Her corpus, stretching back to 1985, includes nearly 70 novels to date. Jance’s popular and compelling protagonists include news anchor-turned-sleuth Ali Reynolds, trailblazing sheriff Joanna Brady, and Arizona’s colorful Walker Family.

Each has a devoted following, but none has been solving crimes for as long – or can boast as many installments – as retired Seattle police detective J. P. Beaumont. First introduced nearly 35 years ago in Until Proven Guilty, Beaumont has been the focus of 24 books (and several well received novellas, besides). Two in this series, Without Due Process (1992) and Failure to Appear (1993), have won Jance the prestigious American Mystery Award. Beaumont’s latest adventure, Sins of the Fathers, hits shelves September 24. In his most personal and suspenseful case to date, the detective is coaxed out of retirement by an old acquaintance to solve a missing person case – one that dredges up unwelcome memories.

Club Book brings best-selling and award-winning national and regional authors to library communities throughout the seven-county Twin Cities metropolitan region. A program of Metropolitan Library Service Agency and coordinated by Library Strategies, Club Book is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
