Mystery Private Eye
The investigation of LaShawn Tompkins's murder seems
straightforward enough. Upon his release from death row, the
ex-drug dealer returned to his old neighborhood, where he
was gunned down on his mother's doorstep. Just another case
of turf warfare.
At least that's what it looks like
on the surface to Seattle investigator J. P. Beaumont, who's
been handed the assignment under the strictest confidence.
But as Beau starts digging, the situation becomes more
complicated than he'd thought. It appears that LaShawn
really had turned over a new leaf at the King Street Mission
and his murder was premeditated. Someone had targeted the
man for death.
Meanwhile, Beau's lover and fellow
cop, Mel Soames, is given her own hush-hush investigation. A
routine check on registered sex offenders has revealed a
disturbing pattern: they're dying off at an alarming rate,
and not all due to natural causes. Details of the latest
death suggest an inside job, and Mel isn't letting this go.
Suddenly, Mel's investigation becomes entangled
with Beau's, and the two begin to uncover a nightmarish
conspiracy that could involve people in high
places—including their own top brass.
