Descripción

The bloody corpses stashed in the broom closet of the Seattle School District building were lovingly entwined. It looked like a classic crime of passion to Detective J.P. Beaumont - especially when Pete Kelsey admitted that his slaughtered wife was an 'A' student in the fine art of adultery. But Pete swore he had nothing to do with the two brutal deaths. Beaumont's gut instinct told him to believe the sinned-upon widower, but he never dreamed that Pete might be harboring a secret hotter than extra-marital sex...and more lethal than murder...

    I don't believe I've read any books by J. A. Jance before but I have certainly heard of her. This book is the 9th in her J. P. Beaumont series and I quite enjoyed it. There are a few references to things that have taken place in the past which I would like to know more of so I may try to pick up some more of these books. It was interesting that this book takes place during an unexpectedly cold snap in Seattle. Cold in Seattle is apparently +6 F. This morning in Winnipeg the temperature is -32 C (or -25.6 F) which is what I consider cold. J. P Beaumont, a homicide detective with the Seattle police, is summoned out into the cold to check out two dead bodies in the Seattle School District office. The bodies are of a male security guard and a female school district employee. It appears it might be a murder suicide at first but that is fairly quickly discounted. The woman's husband, Pete Kelsey, is the next logical suspect and there is certainly some evidence to point to him, like a gun in the dead woman's laundry drawer and the security guard's uniform in his garage. J. P.' s partner for this case is Paul Kramer, the homicide's squad golden boy but a devious player, and he believes Pete is the killer but J. P. is not so sure. The evidence as the case unfolds points to another person and the ending was quite a surprise to me. Well-crafted and suspenseful. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good murder mystery.

    I have always liked the series on Detective Beaumont, excellent characters, an in depth plot and yet fallible humans! Jance is one of the best contemporary writers on mystery and crime!

    PLOT OR PREMISE:Beaumont's case with a up-and-coming ambitious partner focuses on a woman working at the local school board office who winds up dead -- semi-clothed in a closet with a clergyman-turned-security guard and the hints of an affair..WHAT I LIKED:The school board politics and the politics around the police station office are first-rate, and it is nice to see a positive side to the journalist character who constantly hounds J.P. A large cast of characters helps keep the story interesting..WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:The sub-plot is a bit obvious and while the cast of characters is good, it leaves a bit of a feel of happenstance rather than expert detecting..BOTTOM-LINE:Solid but not quite awesome.DISCLOSURE:I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.
