The prime suspect as far as Beau's superiors are concerned soon becomes Larry Martin, an ex-convict who was at the dental office when the assistant left on Saturday. Martin was there to install new carpeting, and his tools are still in the office. The company van he was driving was returned damaged and bloody, and Martin's employer says he's disappeared. But that does not seal the deal in Beau's eyes. He still has questions, a lot of them. And he's going to find out the answers, despite his bosses wanting him to get Larry Martin arrested, charged, and the case closed.
This installment in the J.P. Beaumont series features quirky, well drawn characters and a plot that's just right. Not too convoluted to follow, with twists that surprise the reader and yet make perfect sense. Jance at her best. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Excellent read, believable plot. Many authors have a problem bringing the new reader up to speed with many of the details of the main characters life and this is when the experienced reader flips through the pages. Or the author get caught up in too much detail with the same effect. Not J. A. Jance, who hits just the right balance. I hope you are reading these in series, for they are better that way, and shortly Beau will interact with the other great series that J. A. Jance has, that of Joanna Brady. If you haven't started her series as well, it's time to seriously consider it. The interaction occurs at book 16 in the Beaumont series which is also book 10 of the Joanna Brady series and again at book 19 for Beaumont which is book 14 in the Brady series.

I thoroughly enjoy Jance's descriptive writing. Her characters, the geographical scenes, and criminal scenarios are better than watching a movie. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Kindle Customer

I listened to this on audio. The reader for this series has a wonderful voice. This was almost a cozy mystery. A dead dentist found in his own dentist chair is the problem. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Audrey Anderson
