Proof of Life

William Morrow

J.A. Jance's legendary sleuth J.P. Beaumont is back in Proof of Life. Although Beaumont is retired, he finds himself pulled back into the investigation racket after his longtime nemesis, newspaper crime reporter Maxwell Cole, is killed. As Jance told the Weekly earlier this year, Cole "knew he was in trouble, and he asked someone to be sure that, if anything bad happened to him, ask J.P. to investigate. So he's pulled into the investigation at the express wishes of the victim." The result is another engrossing tale from the New York Times bestselling master of the genre.
