It was like a scene from a movie: the beautiful blond screaming on a Washington beach, a dead man lying at her feet; the dashing Homicide detective arriving to offer kindness and solace to the distressed lady. What it wasn't was a restful vacation for J.P. Beaumont. And now a murderous mix of politics and passion is turning Beau's holiday into a nightmare – and leading the dedicated Seattle cop into the path of a killer whose bloodlust is rapidly becoming an obsession.
This is my second book to read in the J.P. Beaumont detective series. I found this book to be more intense then the first book in the series (Until Proven Guilty.) The book pulled me in right away because of a dead man being pulled out of the water by a woman. We learn this on the first page. With a beginning like that it made me want to go on to see why and how that happened. Of course in most mysteries parts of them are not as intense as other parts. So I didn't find the book to be intense throughout but the ending definitely was and brought everything together. When I read a suspense book I am always trying to put the pieces together to solve the mystery/crime. That is another reason why they hold my attention. There are 20 books in the J.P. Beaumont series and I know I will continue reading them.
