Publisher's Summary

Homicide Detective J. P. Beaumont had little to go on: a body, definitely male and decidedly dead, with strange little puncture wounds.

Taking the Fifth

A friend had introduced my to J.A. Jance books and I started the the Joanne Brady series and have enjoyed it. Read a few of the new Beaumont books but now have started at the beginning and working my way though. Beaumont has changed over the books which I find interesting. In this book Beaumont thinks or feels the main suspect is being framed. The book has interesting twists and turns and I was beginning to wonder how it was all going to tie together but Jance did a good job doing so. Enjoy the descriptions of Seattle.

I'm sure others will like this

Not my cup of tea. As a woman, I found the writing weirdly obnoxious and sexist (and I'm not usually like that) and I disliked the chararcter finding him rather pompous and stupid. I tried to like it right up to the end. I have heard very nice things about this author so I am hoping that others pay me no mind and give this audiobook a try
