Taking the Fifth: A J.P. Beaumont Novel (J. P. Beaumont Novel #4) (Mass Market)
“J.A. Jance does not disappoint.”
The fourth electrifying novel in the J. P. Beaumont series by New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance.
There are many bizarre and terrible ways to die. Seattle Homicide Detective J. P. Beaumont thought he had seen them all—until he saw this body, its wounds, and the murder weapon: an elegant woman’s shoe, its stiletto heel gruesomely caked with blood. The evidence is shocking and unsettling, even for a man who prowls the shadows for a living, for it suggests that savagery is not the exclusive domain of the predatory male. And the scent of a stylish killer is pulling Beaumont into a world of drugs, corruption, and murder to view close-up a cinematic dream at its most nightmarish . . . and lethal.
“Taut . . . entertaining.”
