Seattle investigator J. P. Beaumont investigates a dark and deadly conspiracy that reaches deep into the halls of state government, in this latest thriller fromNew York Timesbestselling author J. A. Jance

At first glance, the video appears to be showing a childish game: a teenage girl with dark wavy hair smiles for the camera, a blue scarf tied around her neck. All of a sudden things turn murderous, and the girl ends up dead. It?s as bad as a snuff film can get, and what?s worse, the clip has been discovered on a phone that belongs to the grandson of Washington State?s governor. However, the boy, who has a troubled background, swears that he?s never seen the victim before.

Fortunately, the governor is able to turn to an old friend, J. P. Beaumont, for help. The Seattle private investigator has witnessed many horrific acts over the years, but this one ranks near the top. Even more shocking is that the crime?s multiple perpetrators could be minors. Along with Mel Soames, his partner in life as well as on the job, Beaumont soon discovers that what initially appears to be a childish prank gone wrong has much deeper implications, reaching into the halls of state government itself. But Mel and Beau must follow this path of corruption to its very end, before more innocent young lives are lost.

Product Description:

From New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance, a suspenseful mystery from the creator of Arizona sheriff Joanna Brady and Seattle homicide detective J. P. Beaumont. At first glance, what happens on the video appears to be a childish game: a teenage girl with dark, wavy hair smiles for the camera, a blue scarf tied around her neck. Then things turn dark and gruesome, and the girl ends up dead. When a snuff film is discovered on a cell phone belonging to the governor of Washington State's grandson-a boy with a troubled background who swears he doesn't know the victim-the governor turns to an old friend, J. P. Beaumont, for help. Of the many horrors the Seattle private investigator has witnessed over the years, this one ranks near the top-especially since the crime's multiple perpetrators might well be minors. But this case of an apparent juvenile prank gone hideously wrong has deeper, more startling implications, leading Beau and Mel Soames-his partner in life and work-down a twisted path of corruption and lies that must be exposed before more young lives are obliterated.
