Beaumont encounters two high school friends while trying to solve a homicide. Very good story
Enjoyed very much, interesting twist.
Another good JP Beaumont mystery!
One of the first books I've read from this author. I really like the character J.P. Beaumont. This is a pretty fast-pased suspense.
I really enjoyed this book
Good read like all of the Beaumont books.
Another in a series by J.A. Jance featuring Seattle Police Detective J.P. Beaumont. Great descriptions in and around the Seattle and Puget Sound area. A good read.
Great mystery. Else Dedriksen was a beautiful but troubled teenager when she walked out of Seattle Homicide detective J.P Beaumont's life. She turns up 30 years later when her husband's mutilated body is found on a charred boat.
Love, love, love Beaumont!
