An explosive novel of betrayal and blood vengeance featuring Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont from the New York Times bestselling author of Betrayal of Trust

There are those who don't deserve to live--and the corpse floating in Elliott Bay may have been one of those people. Not surprisingly, many individuals, too many in fact, are eager to take responsibility for the brutal slaying of the hated biotech executive whose alleged crimes ranged from the illegal trading of industrial secrets to rape. For Seattle Detective J.P. Beaumont--who's drowning in his own life-shattering problems--a case of seemingly justifiable homicide has sinister undertones, drawing the haunted policeman into a corporate nightmare world of double deals, savage jealousies, and real blood spilled far too easily, as it leads him closer to a killer he's not sure he wants to find.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (1997-06-01)

Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont's New Year's Day festivities are interrupted by the discovery of a body floating off a local pier. Gunfire, not drowning, caused the death of this wheeler-dealer from a local high-tech genetics research firm. Two additional murders appear to be linked to the floater. Meanwhile, a prominent "old money" spinster confesses to the crimes. The gruff but soft-hearted Beaumont is touched but not fooled by this false admission of guilt that seems concocted to protect a beloved niece.

Following well-placed clues and perceptive hunches, Beaumont closes in on the real culprits. Readers who relish a varied rendition of diverse characters will appreciate narrator Gene Engene's dramatic interpretation. Recommended for large mystery collections.

Book description

An explosive novel of betrayal and blood vengeance featuring Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont from the New York Times bestselling author of Betrayal of Trust

There are those who don’t deserve to live—and the corpse floating in Elliott Bay may have been one of those people. Not surprisingly, many individuals, too many in fact, are eager to take responsibility for the brutal slaying of the hated biotech executive whose alleged crimes ranged from the illegal trading of industrial secrets to rape. For Seattle Detective J.P. Beaumont—who’s drowning in his own life-shattering problems—a case of seemingly justifiable homicide has sinister undertones, drawing the haunted policeman into a corporate nightmare world of double deals, savage jealousies, and real blood spilled far too easily, as it leads him closer to a killer he’s not sure he wants to find.
