I have been a fan of J.A. Jance and the J. P. Beaumont series since I happened onto the author about 6 months ago. The plot is comfortably predictable [there is no doubt that Beau will solve the crime] but the mystery is interesting and does keep one guessing until all possible suspects have been cleared. The narrator, Gene Engene, is just about perfect as Beau and presents the other characters--including children and women--in a subtle yet distinctive manner. I recommend this book to anyone who likes good stories, good characters, and knowing the good guy will win.
