Beaumont #13 NAME WITHHELD vg-
By J. A. Jance
Investigating the shooting death of a man whose corpse is found in Elliott Bay, J. P. Beaumont turns up an excess of suspects. Nobody grieves when the victim is identified. An executive at biotechnology start-up company, he had been involved in everything from corporate power grabs to rape. The rape victim's aunt, a local antiques dealer, confesses and demands to be arrested; the dead man's boss declares himself a prime suspect. Meanwhile, a woman?possibly the murder victim's wife?is found shot to death. The one person who may understand what's happening, a wheelchair-bound PI, vanishes. Faced with these puzzles, Beaumont also confronts personal problems: his ex-wife is dying of cancer; his sometime partner remains jealous of Beau's independent wealth; and a social worker seems to be trumping up charges of child abuse against him.
A later Avon printing (21st) undated. Clean, glossy covers with corner wear. Pages are white. Binding is flexible but intact, and slightly canted.
