Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Seattle homicide detective J P Beaumont (Beau) is growing old, is having a double knee replacement and winding down to retirement when his drug filled, painkiller mind goes back to old cases. So too then does he. But reopening them results in devastating consequences. This is a well constructed police procedural tale with a poignant side story running smoothly through the main case but without detracting from the crime element at all. It’s good.

If you like J. A. Jance you might also like to read books by Linda Castillo, John Sandford and Faye Kellerman.

Synopsis

Second Watch by J. A. Jance

From New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance, a suspenseful mystery from the creator of Arizona sheriff Joanna Brady and Seattle homicide detective J. P. Beaumont. Getting old is hell. J. P. Beaumont is finally taking some time off to have knee-replacement surgery. But instead of taking his mind off work, the operation plunges him into one of the most perplexing and mind-blowing mysteries he's ever faced. A series of dreams takes him back to his early days on the force with the Seattle PD, and then even earlier, to his days in Vietnam, reminding him of people and events he hasn't thought about in years. Are they just drug-induced hallucinations? Beaumont isn't so sure. When tugging on those threads from long ago leads to present-day murders, Beau's suspicions are confirmed. Some bodies from the second watch just won't stay buried.

Reviews
