Seattle investigator J. P. Beaumont investigates a dark and deadly conspiracy that reaches deep into the halls of state government, in this latest thriller from New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance

At first glance, the video appears to be showing a childish game: a teenage girl with dark wavy hair smiles for the camera, a blue scarf tied around her neck. All of a sudden things turn murderous, and the girl ends up dead. It’s as bad as a snuff film can get, and what’s worse, the clip has been discovered on a phone that belongs to the grandson of Washington State’s governor. However, the boy, who has a troubled background, swears that he’s never seen the victim before.

Fortunately, the governor is able to turn to an old friend, J. P. Beaumont, for help. The Seattle private investigator has witnessed many horrific acts over the years, but this one ranks near the top. Even more shocking is that the crime’s multiple perpetrators could be minors. Along with Mel Soames, his partner in life as well as on the job, Beaumont soon discovers that what initially appears to be a childish prank gone wrong has much deeper implications, reaching into the halls of state government itself. But Mel and Beau must follow this path of corruption to its very end, before more innocent young lives are lost.

    " Jance has written another J.P Beaumont mystery. This one features many sites in my home town. Its a good story and a quick read. "

    " Even though this was not an edge of your seat type of mystery, I really enjoyed this book. Something about Jance's "Beaumont" books, and the way she writes in this characters voice, that make them fun to read, even without near misses with serial killers. "

    " First one of the J.P. Beaumont novels I've read. Liked the book and intend to look for others in this series. Interesting to see how they follow the evidence and slowly the case evolves. This evolution doesn't take you where you think it's going, but it's an interesting journey. The main characters hold your interest and you're left still wanting to know more about them. "

    " I rarely if ever read mysteries except for the Maisie Dobbs series which means I have never read anything by J.A. Jance. This book was my book club selection for this month. Oh my gosh I read this in TWO days, it was fantastic. I also loved that the book takes place in my home state of Washington. The crime was horrific and that's what turns me off about most mysteries, but this story was so well told and J.P. and Mel were detectives I could relate to. Now the question is will I begin at the beginning with the J.P. Beaumont series or just read the next one in the series. "
