Blackwell North Amer
Seattle Police homicide detective J.P. Beaumont is babysitting his best friend's daughters in his penthouse apartment on a sober New Year's Day when he is called to investigate a body floating in nearby Elliot Bay. The case draws Seattle's favorite detective into the cutting-edge world of biotechnology, where business as usual means personal betrayals and selling trade secrets with ruthless efficiency. The more Beau discovers about the corpse, the more he's convinced that justice has already been served.
Amid an exasperating, eccentric cast of characters and battling with a partner who resents Beau's inherited wealth, the recovering alcoholic detective discovers that sometimes twelve-step programs don't have all the answers. With his personal life converging into his professional one, Beau struggles to find a killer he doesn't really want to find.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Nobody is grieving over the death of Donald Wolf, a biotechnology corporation executive whose numerous criminal activities included illegally trading industrial secrets . . . and rape. Too many people, in fact, are almost too eager to take responsibility for his murder.
At the start of a brand new year, Seattle Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont has his own life-shattering problems to worry about–from the imminent death of an ex-wife to trumped-up charges of child abuse. But the recently slain body floating in Elliott Bay is pulling Beau back to the job–leading him into a deadly morass of jealousies, personal betrayals, more corpses and corporate double-dealings . . .and closer to a killer he doesn’t really want to find.
