An extended stay in an Arizona alcohol rehab ranch is not
J.P. Beaumont's idea of a carefree vacation, especially
with a teenage drug dealer as a roommate. It only gets
worse when the punk is shot dead with Beaumont's own .38.
Someone is trying to frame him for the murder of Joey
Rothman, but that's not the end of Beau's problems.
Because if he doesn't find the killer before the killer
finds him, the recovering Seattle detective faces a fate
far more unpleasant than cold turkey: either a long
stretch in the State cooler. . .or an even longer one
beneath the cold, cold ground.
