Meanwhile, Beau's lover and fellow cop, Mel Soames, is given her own hush-hush investigation. A routine check on registered sex offenders has revealed a disturbing pattern: they're dying off at an alarming rate, and not all due to natural causes. Details of the latest death suggest an inside job, but Mel isn't letting this go. Suddenly, Mel's investigation becomes entangled with Beau's, and the two begin to uncover a nightmarish conspiracy that could involve people in high places - including their own top brass.

Once again J. A. Jance has proven to be one of the best writers I've ever read. JP Beaumont is my favorite character of Jance's. I only wish she would write faster, I can't wait for the next book.
Very slow moving and really quite a waste of time; when I find myself doing other things instead of listening to the book, I know it's not for me! Half-way through I just gave up and moved along to another book.
No, as I like this genre of book.
She's only as good as the words she is given to read. While a good narrater, there wasn't much she could do for the story.
While this may be from a best selling author, I really wish I hadn't spent the money to get it. It is very slow moving and really not that interesting.

The author has gone form male friendly to making every case a tutorial on feminism and how the world has changed.
Always, JP Beaumont. He can no longer be the hero in a cop story since he spends his days learning about what men no longer can do.
This is my last book of JA Jance. She has changed dramatically.
An avid reader, demanding of the story, characters and narrator. Mysteries and historical fiction are my favorites.
Love JP, love Mel, and all the friends and family in these stories. This is book 17 - and Beau is back in the saddle. (Book 16 paired him with another police person, and it was not as good as the JP series.)
All of these Beau Beaumont books are good, this is one of the even better ones. It's good to see an injustice turned around. It gets complicated, which is good, it makes you think. It's satisfying, and that is Very Good!
