Failure To Appear by J.A.Jance

J.P. Beaumont is back
Tracking a trail of broken hearts and shattered dreams

J.P. Beaumont's teenaged daughter Kelly has run off and her tracks have led the sober-but-struggling sleuth to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. But in addition to once very headstrong offspring, there is something else waiting for Beau backstage. A case of cold-blooded murder. The victim is an acquaintance, a sleazy rival P.I. brutally butchered, supposedly by the Festival's current young Juliet. Though J.P. has his doubts. But the Second Act is about to open with a second corpse and a touch of kiddie porn. Leaving Beau center stage in a heart stopping tragedy of revenge, deception, and death.

  1. Scott - That's such an unusual kind of knife on the cover - it's attention-getting, that's for sure.
