Publisher's Summary

The newest thrilling Beaumont suspense novel from New York Times best-selling author J. A. Jance, in which Beaumont is approached by a visitor from the past and finds himself drawn into a missing person’s case where danger is lurking and family secrets are exposed.      

Years ago, when he was a homicide detective with the Seattle PD, J. P. Beaumont’s partner, Sue Danielson, was murdered. Volatile and angry, Danielson’s ex-husband came after her in her home and, with nowhere else to turn, Jared, Sue’s teenage son, frantically called Beau for help. As Beau rushed to the scene, he urged Jared to grab his younger brother and flee the house. In the end, Beaumont’s plea and Jared’s quick action saved the two boys from their father’s murderous rage.

Now, almost 20 years later, Jared reappears in Beau’s life seeking his help once again - his younger brother Chris is missing. Still haunted by the events of that tragic night, Beau doesn’t hesitate to take on the case. Following a lead all the way to the wilds of wintertime Alaska, he encounters a tangled web of family secrets in which a killer with nothing to lose is waiting to take another life.

Narrator awful

I am in hell. What idiot hired this guy to be JP. He has an awful whiny, high-pitched voice. Never thought I would ever return a JAJance book but audible is getting this one back.

Narrator’s Voice

The narrator’s voice was so distractive- alternating between audible to a low tone which is indiscernible. Usually the end of his sentences is where it’s most noticeable. I enjoyed the author’s storyline, but would have preferred a different narrator.

Narrator is awful.

I'm buying the book so not be distracted by the bad narration.
Love JA Jance books. Have read all her series. i wait anxiously for her books but the narration of 'Nothing to Lose' is horrible. I went back thru JP Beaumont series in Audible listened to samples all were good, this one sounds like Mike Ortego
needs to spit.

Poor reader

The reader dropped his voice often, particularly at the end of the sentence. Either you have to turn up the sound to blasting for most of the book or miss crucial words.

Bad Reader

Why can’t a decent reader be kept? Does she put it out to the lowest bidder every book?

New narrator?

The narrator leaves a lot to be desired. Not at all what I think Beau should sound like. The story was not one of the best but still worth listening to.

Don't Listen to Nay-Sayers - Excellent!

Loved this story and performance. I almost didn't buy after the negative performance ratings. I'm glad I ignored those negative remarks. :This is quintessential J A Jance JP Beaumont! The narrator was great - clear and emotive. I thought the pathos was especially well done. The story was attention grabbing and absorbing. I can't wait for the next book from J A Jance.

Nothing to Lose

I enjoyed this audio book, filled with hard core murder and many clues. a quirky driver added to the entertaining characters.
