Summary

Since the disbanding of the Special Homicide Investigation Team, JP Beaumont's biggest concern is pondering whether he and his wife, Mel, should finally get a dog. But one voicemail from his old friend Ralph Ames is about to change that. Through Ralph, Beau has become involved in an organization called The Last Chance, which enlists a number of retired homicide investigators to tackle long unsolved cold cases. The one that has just landed on Beau's plate is a 30-year-old missing person case.

The facts are muddy at best; Janice Marie Harrison's car was found abandoned near a bridge, and scratched in the dirt nearby was the word "sorry". It's possible her death was a suicide, but her body was never found. And as Beau begins to investigate, he discovers that no one connected to Janice - not her once all-star football player widower, Anders; not her long-grieving, sister, Estelle; not sheriff Gavin Loper, who was deputy sheriff at the time of Janice's disappearance; and not Anders' second wife, Betsy - is exactly what they seem. The question is, which of them knows the truth?

And why have they kept it buried?

Too short for the price...

I grew up on Whidbey Island and have been most of the places cited. Much nostalgia. But, for a novella this cost too much.

Don’t waste your time or $

Most boring Beaumont story ever, made even more boring by worst Beaumont narrator ever. He sounds half asleep, and voices all the characters exactly the same.

Go ahead and skip this one — it adds nothing to the Beaumont canon.
