After a 10 month hiatus we are back with the USA Fiction Challenge. This time around we will visit the Sate of Washington. Washington was made out of the western part of the Washington Territory which had been ceded by Britain in the Oregon Treaty as a settlement of the Oregon Boundary Dispute in 1846 and was admitted as the 42nd state in 1889.
We will highlight the J.A. Jance title
When the dentist is a sadist, an appointment can be murder...
The dentist was sitting bolt upright in his chair. Stone-cold dead.
Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont had plenty of suspects. Like the dentist's wife, who, after ten years of brutal beatings, certainly had the motive to kill. Or the pretty dental assistant, whose late night services would never appear on her resume. Or the ex-con who was the last person to see the dentist alive, and was an intimate friend of the widow. Beaumont knew he was closing in on his prey. But when a new piece of evidence surfaced, he discovered the true meaning of evil, and decided the killer should go free!
