J. P. Beaumont has been given a top-secret special assignment by his boss to look into the murder of an ex-con released when DNA evidence proved him innocent. Mel, J.P.'s live-in girlfriend and partner, has been given an assignment to investigate released sex offenders who have died under suspicious circumstances. Life at home gets very tense when J. P. has to keep his investigation from Mel.

Soon their cases collide and there are lots of strains put on their relationship as well. Can they untangle the web of these deaths and put things right at home as well?

I haven't read a bad J.P. Beumont book yet. I really enjoy Beau's thought process and how he seems to put his foot in it without meaning to. Great book with lots of twists and turns. ( )

I liked the protagonist, but there was too much about family life and not enough twists and turns of the investigation. A true investigation would have dead ends. ( )

Beaumont's relationships with his grandmother, his kids, and Mel, are revealed somewhat in the background of solving some cold cases that involve many coincidences and possible suspects. ( )

Our hero is tracking down a killer of excons who were rapists. Good action with the usual family stuff mixed in. Good, quick read. ( )

J. A. Jance created another winner in this J. P. Beaumont series.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have read just about all the books and this could be her best, although all are great reads. Briefly you will find that in Justice Denied detective J.P. Beaumont investigates the brutal murder of a man (Tompkins) that had been released from prison. At the same time Mel Soames, Beaumont's partner is investigating the suspicious deaths of sex crime offenders. And now the story takes off that gave me a gripping mystery with wonderful characters as it spirals and makes a lot surprises. The characters have depth and multiple dimensions and its a Gripping Mystery that draws your tensions tighter.
I'd gladly recommend this book to all my friends. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060540931, Mass Market Paperback)

The murder of an ex-drug dealer ex-con—gunned down on his mother's doorstep—seems just another turf war fatality. Why then has Seattle homicide investigator J.P. Beaumont been instructed to keep this assignment hush-hush? Meanwhile, Beau's lover and fellow cop, Mel Soames, is involved in her own confidential investigation. Registered sex offenders from all over Washington State are dying at an alarming rate—and not all due to natural causes.

A metropolis the size of Seattle holds its fair share of brutal crime, corruption, and dirty little secrets. But when the separate trails they're following begin to shockingly intertwine, Beau and Mel realize that they have stumbled onto something bigger and more frightening than they anticipated—a deadly conspiracy that's leading them to lofty places they should not enter . . . and may not be allowed to leave alive.
