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.
just barely. I fell in deep like with J. P. in the middle of this series. because of Audible I was able to hear about him from the beginning. the reader, at least, through the first 5 books is so disappointing in comparison to the reader that helped me wanted to know more about J. P.
J. P. is a grump with a very big heart. he doesn't want to leave anyone behind. he's there for the underdog.
the reader was boring. he makes J. P. sound so harsh in comparison to the reader I remember. I've spent too much time hoping that the next book in the series would have a new reader.
I know future books (# 6 ?) with J. P. are coming my way with a different reader & I can't wait to hear him..
love Jance"S books. I like to have some tongue and cheek humor along with suspense. there are some genuinely profound moments in Jance's stories. when are we going to see Beaumont, Brady and Ali Reynolds in a book all at one time.
