The 13th account of Homicide Detective J. P. Beaumont of Seattle, Washington.
New Years Day, J.P is babysitting when he gets a call about a floater in the bay. This is the start of one the worst time of his career.
He is chasing a killer that seems to have kill a person that really deserve it. But it is his job to find the killer. Which isn't made easy since his partner, Kramer hates him. A sex-changing man is finding him attractive is throw into the mix.
His personal life is going from bad to worst. His ex-wife is dying from cancer and he isn't coping well with it. He is being investigating about being child molester. And being an alcoholic , will he fall off the wagon?
As normal, Jance has bits of knowledge that always makes me thing or agree with.
“When it comes to women, “ I told him, “ like it or not, there are some things you just have to accept on faith.”
When the brass starts jumping up and down and demanding results yesterday, when they lose track of the fact that instant results often breed long-term disaster, that's when I have a hard time keeping a civil tongue in my mouth.
The life of a Detective isn't easy but if it wasn't why read it. Another fast pace tale about my favorite Detective J. P. Beaumont. Soon I will read the tale of Brady and Beaumont.
