SECOND WATCH by J A Jance



SECOND WATCH   by J A Jance

Jance takes us back in time to relate how beau became a detective and the “one that got away.”  Beau’s first homicide was never solved.  Now, in the present, Beau revisits that crime.  Does he solve it? I won’t tell, but you enjoy the juxtaposition of past and present in this tale of crime and aging knees.
Jance keeps you interested while giving the reader a glimpse in to Beau’s back story.  As usual, the writing is crisp, the plotting is well paced and the characters ring true.  Another winner for the mystery lover, especially those who have Beau’s career through the years.

W IS FOR WASTED





Grafton has written another winner.  The characters are real. The conversation is logical. The view expressed of the homeless is very interesting.  The mystery is quirky enough to keep you reading. The “new” family members for Kinsey are always a revelation.  Not quite sure how this fits with the previous books, but I am happy for Kinsey’s new found wealth. All in all, a good read from a favorite author.
