Library Journal Review

The brutal murder of a black cop and his family tests the procedural skills of Seattle police detective J.P. Beaumont, the paperback hero recently promoted to hardcover ( Hour of the Hunter , Morrow, 1991). Jance, who energizes this adventure with slick, made-for-TV plotting, fast-paced action, and canned dialog, focuses on a surviving child witness, possible police corruption, rival street gangs, and Beaumont's previous friendship with the victim. Lean forward, grab on, and ride for adventure. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
