Description
Else Didriksen was a beautiful but troubled teenager when she walked out of Seattle homicide detective J. P. Beaumont's life. She turns back up thirty years later in the most harrowing of circumstances - when her husband's mutilated body is found on board the charred remains of their commercial fishing boat.
Relying on hard work and solid sleuthing, Beau commands his investigation the old-fashioned way: with powerful determination and tireless legwork. But only a detective as smooth and likable as Beau can win the trust of the most skeptical and endear himself to all. From Seattle's briny fishing enclave to the graceful estates of the white-collared high society, Beau dismisses no suspect as he tracks a killer whose vicious determination is fueled by a haunting, decades-old murder.
In 1993 Jance's fans awarded Failure to Appear, the most recent Beaumont, the American Mystery Award. Now, Lying in Wait delivers the Jance trademarks of breakneck plotting, characters so human they could be the people next door, and the riveting suspense that Jance's following has come to expect. With the most noble and inventive detective around, Lying in Wait is a harrowing tale of manipulation and greed that will leave Jance's fans shocked and starved for more.

display_descriptionAn electrifying story of vengeance and the sins of a nightmarish past featuring Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont. The sky above Puget Sound blazes orange, as a burning fishing boat fills the air with acrid smoke . . . and the sickening odor of charred flesh. The terrible death of a Seattle fisherman has raised more questions than answers, opening a Pandora's Box of evil that was kept tightly closed for more than half a century. Now a dark cloud is descending over the dead man's frightened widow, and she must turn for help to an old friend, Detective J.P. Beaumont, the one man who can free her from a web of murderous greed and oppressive terror. But the secrets that hold Else Didricksen prisoner are about to ensnare Beaumont as well . . . in ways he never dreamed possible.
