Overview

An electrifying story of vengeance and the sins of a nightmarish past featuring Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont.

The sky above Puget Sound blazes orange, as a burning fishing boat fills the air with acrid smoke . . . and the sickening odor of charred flesh. The terrible death of a Seattle fisherman has raised more questions than answers, opening a Pandora’s Box of evil that was kept tightly closed for more than half a century. Now a dark cloud is descending over the dead man’s frightened widow, and she must turn for help to an old friend, Detective J.P. Beaumont, the one man who can free her from a web of murderous greed and oppressive terror. But the secrets that hold Else Didricksen prisoner are about to ensnare Beaumont as well . . . in ways he never dreamed possible.

This was my 12th J P Beaumont book and I must say that I have enjoyed each and everyone of them. Jance has the ability to hold your attention from the first page. I have not really read many murder mysteries, but Jance has me hooked.

I love her books, from the plot to the characters. I can never put them down.

It was alright. Seemed to fall flat compared to the other Beaumont books. Missing the spark the others always have. The end payoff was not satisfying and not laid out well. Left some things unexplained and seemed to move on from the climax without a blink. Worth the read only if youre following the series in order. My least favorite yet.
