Not the best J.P. Beaumont, but Jance is always worth reading. On a New Year's Eve he's spending happily drinking root beer floats with two pre-teen daughters of friends who themselves are spending the night at their probable last getaway before their new baby's born, Beau gets a call that there's a "floater" in Elliott Bay, a few blocks from his penthouse suite. The "drowned" man turns out to have a bullet hole in the back of his head. He also ends up having a multitude of people standing in line wanting to confess to his murder. The ending is a bit over the top. This one is full of humor and pathos together.

Typical Jance, well written and engaging but not something you will remember in a couple of days

Nobody is grieving over the death of Donald Wolf, a biotechnology corporation executive whose numerous criminal activities included illegally trading industrial secrets . . . and rape. Too many people, in fact, are almost too eager to take responsibility for his murder.

At the start of a brand new year, Seattle Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont has his own life-shattering problems to worry about–from the imminent death of an ex-wife to trumped-up charges of child abuse. But the recently slain body floating in Elliott Bay is pulling Beau back to the job–leading him into a deadly morass of jealousies, personal betrayals, more corpses and corporate double-dealings . . .and closer to a killer he doesn’t really want to find.
