Publisher's Summary

J. P. Beaumont's latest investigation strikes too close to home in this riveting mystery from New York Times best-selling author J. A. Jance.
Be careful what you wish for....
Before he retired, J. P. Beaumont had looked forward to having his days all to himself. But too much free time doesn't suit a man used to brushing close to danger. When his longtime nemesis, retired Seattle crime reporter Maxwell Cole, dies in what's officially deemed to be an accidental fire, Beau is astonished to be dragged into the investigation at the request of none other than the deceased victim himself. In the process, Beau learns that just because a long-ago case was solved doesn't mean it's over.
Caught up in a situation where old actions and grudges can hold dangerous consequences in the present, Beau is forced to operate outside the familiar world of law enforcement. While seeking justice for his frenemy and healing for a long fractured family, he comes face to face with an implacable enemy who has spent decades hiding in plain sight.

Please bring the other narrator back!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His voice was too wimpy & just didn't go with the vision I've always had of JP Beaumont.<br/>It made for an unpleasant listening experience.

What did you love best about Proof of Life?

I love the story and am glad to see Beau back!

What did you like best about this story?

JP Beaumont

What didn’t you like about Alan Sklar’s performance?

He read so damn slow that I had to change the speed on my iPod to 1.25 to get the story in a reasonable voice and speed.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Lucy's story.

Any additional comments?

Love the book, dislike the new reader intensely but only because he reads so slow. Won't listen to any more books with Sklar as the reader.
