A JP Beaumont mystery. The bloody corpses stashed in the broom closet of the Seattle School District building were lovingly entwined. It looked like a classic crime of passion to Beau, especially when Pete Kelsey admitted that his slaughtered wife was an A student in the fine art of adultery. But Pete swore he had nothing to do with the brutal deaths of the lusty school official and her security guard. Beau's gut instincts told him to believe the widower. But.........

It looks like a classic crime of passion to Detective J.P. Beaumonth: two corpses found lovingly entwined in a broom closet of the Seattle School District building. The prime suspect, Pete Kelsey, admits his slain spouse was no novice at adultery, yet he swears he had nothing to do with the brutal deaths of the errant school official and her clergyman-turned-security guard companion. Beau believes him, but theres something the much sinned-upon widowers not telling--- and that spells serious trouble still to come. Because the secret Pete's protection is even hotter than extra-marital sex...and it could prove more lethal than murder.

This is my first Jance book and it was kind of slow in places due to too much detail for me. The plot picked up in the last few chapters for an exciting climax. Will try another one more Jance novel to see if the writing improves.
