New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance presents another extraordinary adventure featuring hard-bitten homicide detective J.P. Beaumont, in the series that earned Jance the American Mystery Award.
The Seattle that Beau knew as a young policeman is disappearing. The city is awash in the aromas emanating from a glut of coffee bars; the neighborhood outside his condo building has sprouted gallery upon gallery; and even his long-cherished diner has evolved into a trendy eatery for local hipsters.
But the glam is strictly surface, for the grit under the city's fingernails is caked with blood. Beau and his new partner, Sue Danielson, a struggling single parent, are assigned the murder of an elderly woman - torched to death in her bed. As their investigation proceeds, Beau and Sue become embroiled in a perilous series of events that will leave them and their case shattered. And for Beau, nothing will ever be the same again.
