Life has changed for J. P. Beaumont. The special homicide Investigation Team has been disbanded by the new Governor after a terrible accident.
Mel Soames, J. P. Beaumont’s wife has accepted a new job as Chief of Police for Bellingham, Washington. Beau and Mel have moved to Bellingham and are renovating a new home. Beau is trying to stay out of Mel’s problems and let her handle her new job in her own way. Then Mel is kidnapped and Beau jumps in to search for and rescue Mel.
This is a novella that is to fill in Beau’s life since the prior novel and set up for the new book coming out called “Dance of the Bones”. The book is well written and moves at a very fast pace with lots of action.
J. R. Horne is the narrator but for me Gene Engene the long time narrator of the series is Beaumont. I had problems adjusting to a different narrator.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Has Stand Down Novella turned you off from other books in this genre?
Usually enjoy Jance but this was only a compilation of words: Spoiler: They buy a house, his wife gets kidnapped because she got the job another guy wanted, Beaumont rescues her. That's it presented in as dull and incompetent way as possible.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
