Publisher Comments:

A gripping tale of hatred, lies, and deadly traditionfeaturing Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont from the New York Times bestselling author of Betrayal of Trust

J. A. Jance

Dismissed with Prejudice

The blood at the scene belies any suggestion of an “honorable death.” Yet, to the eyes of the Seattle police, a successful Japanese software magnate died exactly as he wished—and by his own hand, according to the ancient rite of seppuku. Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont cant dismiss what he sees as an elaborate suicide, however, not when something about it makes his flesh crawl. Because small errors in the ritual suggest something darker: a killer who will go to extraordinary lengths to escape detection—a fiend with a less traditional passion . . . for cold-blooded murder.

Synopsis:

A J.P. Beaumont Mystery Japanese businessman Tadeo Kurobashi had many passions, including computers, poetry, money, and Samurai lore. So his suicide method of choice would naturally be the ancient art of seppuku--what the uninitiated would call 'hara-kiri'. But despite the bloody Samurai sword Kurobashi clutches tightly to his lifeless hand, Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont senses the dead software magnate played a less active role in his own demise. Glaring errors have been made in the time-honored Asian death ritual--which has Beau looking for someone with a less traditional passion...for cold-blooded homicide.
