Getting old is hell. J. P. Beaumont is finally taking some time off to have knee-replacement surgery. But instead of taking his mind off work, the operation plunges him into one of the most perplexing and mind-blowing mysteries he's ever faced. A series of dreams takes him back to his early days on the force with the Seattle PD, and then even earlier, to his days in Vietnam, reminding him of people and events he hasn't thought about in years.
When tugging on those threads from long ago leads to present-day murders, Beau's suspicions are confirmed. Some bodies from the second watch just won't stay buried. A masterful demonstration of J. A. Jance's superb craftsmanship, Second Watch is a thought-provoking novel that is also a poignant look at one of the most painful and divisive moments in our history - Vietnam - and a reminder of the staggering cost of war and the debts we owe to those who served then...and those who do now.
Performed by J. R. Horne

a unique idea
After writing 20 books about Beaumont what can an author do different? Jance certainly came up with a unique twist for the twenty first book. I found the weaving of fiction with non-fiction a distinctive idea. Beau is in the having both knees replaced and has had some hallucination with his pain medication that triggers him to ask to open a cold case, his first homicide. He is also hallucinating about his Lieutenant from his Army days in Viet Nam. What Jance does with these two plots is interesting and different from her usual stories. One is non-fiction the other is fiction, there is of course suspense, some action, and humor as she weaves her story. In this book she also brings in Bisbee, Arizona and Sherriff Joan Brady in a brief appearance. J.R. Home did a good job narrating the book. If you are a fan of Jance you will enjoy her new book.
