Minor In Possession
by J.A. Jance

A Stiff Shot Of Murder

The Arizona alcohol rehab ranch was no picnic for J.P.Beaumont. First they stuck him in a room with a sleazy, teenage drug dealer named Joey Rothman. Then they sick the local law on him when the punk was discovered shot dead with Beaumont's own gun. But the party responsible for Joey's early checkout wasn't satisfied with simply framing J.P. for murder. Suddenly the Seattle detective faced a choice of fates for more unpleasant than cold turkey. A long stay in the state cooler, or an even longer one beneath the cold, cold ground.

  1. Scott - Oh, cool! A J.J. Jance. Interesting cover on that one, too.

  2. The stakes are definitely high when you are investigating the crime to exonerate yourself. I love the Elvis hair on the victim who I'm guessing is the teenage drug dealer.

  3. I have got to try one of these books in the J. P. Beaumont series. And this one sounds particularly good.

  4. A new to me author. Sounds good...
