Overview

Minor in Possession (J. P. Beaumont Series #8) by J. A. Jance

A gripping story of buried truths, deceit, and sudden, brutal death from the New York Times bestselling author of Long Time Gone.

All manner of sinners and sufferers come to the rehab ranch in Arizona when they hit rock bottom. For Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont, there is a deeper level of Hell here: being forced to room with teenage drug dealer Joey Rothman. An all-around punk, Joey deserves neither pity nor tears—until he is murdered by a bullet fired from Beaumont's gun. Someone has set Beau up brilliantly for a long and terrifying fall, dragging the alcoholic ex-cop into a conspiracy of blood and lies that could cost him his freedom . . . and his life.

Although a bit slower than Jance's previous JP Beaumont novels, it's a good read in the series.

Jance has done it again. A series of all too believable and touching characters with human foibles in a real life situation, in this case, detox. Coming back after a long absence, reading about Beaumont's adventures is like meeting an "old friend" again. Learn a bit about the process of alcoholism/substance abuse treatment, as you follow Beaumont through the twists and turns of a murder mystery. Jance would seem to have a firm grasp of the process of police investigations and the culture surrounding detox treatment. Combining that with a comfortable and humorous writing style, makes for a novel that is hard to put done.

It was nice to go with Beau to Arizona and a new phase in his life though the visit had all kinds of unexpected happenings, resulting in another case to solve. By now I feel that if Beau walked up to me somewhere I would recognize him. I have gotten to know all his friends and associates as well. I would LUV to see a series of television movies based on the J.A. Jance, J.P. Beaumont books!

Another suspense mystry in the J. Beaumont series. Difficult to figure "who done it". At the end, it all fits being its a mystry novel. Have a large numer of Jance's book in my nook library and not one of them has been a disappointment.

I would recommend this book. When I read the synopsis I wasn't sure I wanted to read it but I was 7 books into the series. I decided to go ahead and although parts I didn't care for I ended up enjoying it.
