I feel that the fans of J.P. Beaumont will love this one. It is so typical J.A. Jance. I enjoyed every page of this one. Another reviewer has done a wonderful job of outlining the plot, so I will not repeat what is obvious. Jance's character developement (this author's strongest skill) holds very true to form with this work and we learn more and more of her detective Beaumont. We also get a look at the drug culture in that part of the country (Seattle of course) and some of the alternative life styles found their. This work has some fascinating twists (no spoilers here) and as one reviewer points out, just when you have things figured out, you get the rug pulled from under you. Of course, the book will be much better for those who have read the preceeding books dealing with this seattle Cop, but the book is also able to stand on it's own and is simply a good read. Recommend this one highly.

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.
