While Seattle is undergoing unwelcome upscale change, it is strictly on the surface, as the Grim Reaper still lives in the shadows of the city. And it falls to Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont and his new partner, Sue Danielson, to get to the bottom of his latest handiwork. But the trail will lead to places and events that will leave two police officers and their cases shattered--and nothing will ever be the same again."--Publisher description.

Entertaining short book. It definitely helps if you are familiar with the previous books in the series to get the most out of it

JA Jance knows how to write a character that goes beyond cliche, anytime she comes close she steers away and makes it real. As a Seattle native I appreciate her approach to the greater Seattle area as another character in the book. This book was well written and had an emotional climax for sure. A GREAT read
