Just What I Wanted

I have been a fan of J.A. Jance and the J. P. Beaumont series since I happened onto the author about 6 months ago. The plot is comfortably predictable [there is no doubt that Beau will solve the crime] but the mystery is interesting and does keep one guessing until all possible suspects have been cleared. The narrator, Gene Engene, is just about perfect as Beau and presents the other characters--including children and women--in a subtle yet distinctive manner. I recommend this book to anyone who likes good stories, good characters, and knowing the good guy will win.

Some of the Voices Made Me Cringe!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. J.A. Jance almost always hits a home run as far as I am concerned. My favorite series is Joanna Brady, but J.P. Beaumont is a close second. I have heard many books narrated by Gene Engene but this was the first one where I just didn't like the narration. He was great when he was doing the voice of Beau......but I seriously disliked almost all of the other voices, starting with his partner, Al. His portrayal of Al sounded like he couldn't possibly have enough brains to qualify as a detective........more like a punch-drunk fighter!! He did the words of the sergeant so fast that I sometimes had to replay them in order to understand what was being said. A great book and I know this narrator can do better because I've heard him do it.
