Injustice for All: A J.P. Beaumont Mystery (J. P. Beaumont Mysteries)by J A Jance
Synopses & Reviews
A gripping tale of bloodlust and terror from the New York Times bestselling author of Exit Wounds
It was a scene from a "slasher flick"—a beautiful woman's terrified screams piercing the air, a dead body sprawled at her feet, blood staining the pristine sands of a Washington beach. But the blood is real, and the victim won't be rising when a director yells, "Cut!" In one horrific instant, a homicide detective's well-earned holiday has become a waking nightmare. Suddenly a lethal brew of passion, madness, and politics threatens to do more than poison J.P. Beaumont's sleep; it's dragging the dedicated Seattle cop into the path of a killer whose dark hunger is rapidly becoming an obsession.
Coming to the rescue of a beautiful blonde, Beaumont finds a corpse at her feet, an ex-member of the State Parole Board. When a politician gets involved in the case and Beau is framed for the murder, Beau must find the killer quickly--before it is too late.
Top ten New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance brings us a classic thriller featuring Seattle homicide detective J.P. Beaumont as he tracks down an obsessed killer.
