After more than twenty years of distinguished service with the Seattle Police Department, Jonas Piedmont Beaumont is now working
for the Washington State Attorney's Special Homicide Investigation
Team or, as it's more commonly called, the SHIT squad. But the more
things change, the more they stay the same. An eyewitness to a
fifty-year-old murder has just come forward, and Beau has been
hand-picked to lead the investigation. While undergoing
hypnotherapy, a middle-aged nun unexpectedly recalls the grisly
details of a cold-blooded killing she witnessed when she was five
years old. Though fear has kept these memories repressed for half a
century, they've now risen to the surface to cast a harsh light on a
deadly plot that spans two generations. And Beau's caught in the
glare, facing a ruthless band of coconspirators willing to go to any
lengths to keep their secrets hidden.

'While Jance writes without the humor of an Ed McBain or Robert B Parker, fans of those authors will appreciate Beaumont.' - PW
