Format: Mass Market Paperback
A unknown black male is found heaped in a dumpster. J.P. Beaumont is on the case. Through a series of connections, Beaumont figures out who the man is: a leading high school basketball coach who just lost at the finals before he was murdered.Jance presents us with an entire array of suspects and they keep us interested and reading well into the night. Yet, there are definitely deadends, as promising though they may have first seemed, an interesting and distant wife who isn't laying her cards on the table, some racial issues bring cause for consideration of certain suspects, an angry father is brought into the mix and we just don't know whodunit until the very final pages -- yet with almost no clues, somewhere around a third of the way through the book, the reader may start to find their gut leading them in an unlikely direction. Gut reactions sometimes tell us a whole lot.Beaumont is entirely likeable and human. This is no supercop who is spit shined and blemish free. Beaumont's life is his job; other than that, things are a mishmash. He drinks too much at times, he has many life regrets, he doesn't get the respect he should get from his peers -- and yet, he remains true to his work, and of course, triumphs!A great character. Certainly a favorite among J.A. Jance readers.Really enjoyable, eminently readable mystery, as it should be... despite the lost sleep that may come with opening the cover!A Definite Winner!

This series keeps the ingredients that made it a winner from the start: a divorced detective that has lots of money and loves McNaughton's, a partner that only eats healthy food and lives with his two kids, a lawyer that was "inherited" together with the money and an obnoxious reporter that hates the detective's guts due to past rivalries. This mix makes the Beaumont series a highly enjoyable one. You can read each of these books in a few hours non-stop and be eager for more!
If you are not interested in reading the whole series you can still read this book alone, sine there is enough background information in it to fully enjoy it. Nevertheless, I would not recommend reading Injustice For All (if you are planning to read this one too) after Trial By Fury since the latter has information about the ending of the former.
It is hard to say which series is better, J.P. Beaumont of Joanna Brady. My recommendation is: READ THEM BOTH!

This is a definate must read. I love how J.A. Jance turned the hometown hero basketball coach into a scandalous "cheat". What a plot!! I couldn't wait for the end when... A suspense thrilled novel.

HASH(0x98b052e8) out of 5 stars A Great Murder Mystery Sept. 14 2010
By Richard J. Short - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I have drifted in and out of being a regular reader of mystery novels, only due to a demanding schedule. I bought Trial by Fury a few years ago after having really enjoyed a few Jance Beaumont and Brady books. It sat on a shelf until a few days ago.

I breezed through this exciting, plot twisting story hangning on every word to see what would happen next. I stayed awake a few nights and got through it in just a few days.

I tend to figure who a killer is early in a story, and this one was no exception. However, I was thoroughly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed "tagging along" with Detective JP Beaumont as he tracked down the murderer of a high school basketball coach.

A number of "scenes" came out of no where and blew me away.

The cool thing about the Jance novels is that you get to know and get to like the characters. Beumont reminds me a lot of '70's and '80's TV detectives who act tough, who are really very soft hearted, and always lonely and drink a lot.

I'm now an official Jance fan. I recommend this and all of the Beaumont and Brady books. They're enjoyable in any order, but it's kind of cool to read them in sequence and alternate between the two.

HASH(0x98b05690) out of 5 stars J.P. Beaumount Mystery Series by J.A. Jance March 5 2013
By Joanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I recommend this series of mysteries for enjoyable reading. Based in Seattle, Washington and areas around the Northwest Coast of Puget Sound. Detective Beaumount is a likeable, big man, smart with an inability to let go or give up... so he plods, He's old fashion enough that he tries to have manners and respect but lacks some people skills. Still he is a cop you want on a homicide. He infuriates his superiors but has been doing the job for a long time. Divorced and living alone, he drinks too much and never gets enough sleep or good food. The stories keep you interested with difficult cases woven with believable characters, a view into Seattle life. You may read too late at night because you can’t lay it down and when your finished you can’t just read ‘one book from this series’. I haven’t read a bad one yet!
