This was a quick read and once I got into it I couldn't put it down. J.P. Beaumont is trying to solve the murder of Donald Wolf, a biotechnology corporation executive whose numerous criminal activities included illegally trading industrial secrets and rape. He was not well-liked and many have motive for murder. Beau has lots of problems in this one also.

There are those who don't deserve to live, and the corpse floating in Elliot Bay may have been one of those people. Not surprisingly, many individuals-too many, in fact-are eager to take responsibility for the brutal slaying of the hated biotech executive whose alleged crimes ranged from the illegal trading of industrial secrets to rape. For Seattle Detective J P Beaumont, who's drowning in his own life-shattering problems, a case of seemingly justifiable homicide has sinister undertones, drawing the haunted policeman into a corporate nightmare of double deals, savage jealousies, and real blood spilled far too easily, as it leads him close to a killer he's not sure he wants to find.

From the book cover: "There are those who don't deserve to live - and the corpse floating in Elliot Bay may have been one of those people. Not surprisingly, many individuals - too many, in fact - are eager to take responsibility for the brutal slaying of the hated biotech executive whose alleged crimes ranged from the illegal trading of industrial secrets to rape. For Seattle Detective J.P.

A good, light read.

Long before she started her hot new series about Arizona sheriff Joanna Brady, J. A. Jance was already one of the stalwarts of the police procedural genre because of her books about Seattle homicide detective J. P. Beaumont. Like the Brady novels, the Beaumont books are a perfect balance of the personal and the professional--placing the main characters in human contexts without making them seem cute or trite. The latest Beaumont, just out in paperback, is one of the best in the series: Beau wrestles at home with his own dying ex-wife and the vindictive former spouse of his best friend, while his office time is spent trying to discover who murdered a very nasty biotech executive.
