Publisher's Summary

Seattle investigator J. P. Beaumont investigates a dark and deadly conspiracy that reaches deep into the halls of state government in this latest thriller from New York Times best-selling author J. A. Jance.
At first glance, the video appears to be showing a childish game: a teenage girl with dark wavy hair smiles for the camera, a blue scarf tied around her neck. All of a sudden things turn murderous, and the girl ends up dead. It’s as bad as a snuff film can get, and what’s worse, the clip has been discovered on a phone that belongs to the grandson of Washington State’s governor. However, the boy, who has a troubled background, swears that he’s never seen the victim before.
Fortunately, the governor is able to turn to an old friend, J. P. Beaumont, for help. The Seattle private investigator has witnessed many horrific acts over the years, but this one ranks near the top. Even more shocking is that the crime’s multiple perpetrators could be minors. Along with Mel Soames, his partner in life as well as on the job, Beaumont soon discovers that what initially appears to be a childish prank gone wrong has much deeper implications, reaching into the halls of state government itself. But Mel and Beau must follow this path of corruption to its very end, before more innocent young lives are lost.

Kept me guessing ...

Personally, I found this book to be very enjoyable -- if you like murder mysteries, which I do, then I think you will too. I had never listened to the J.P. Beaumont Series of books before and if they are all this entertaining, then I know I've got 19 others I can enjoy -- since this is Book 20, apparently. I'm always amazed by the different reviews for a book -- I'm reading them and thinking, hey, this is right up my alley and then BOOM somebody invariably (or several somebodies) will write a really bad review. I guess that's just another example of how we are all different. I would recommend this book. I like it.
