A gripping story of buried truths, deceit, and sudden, brutal death featuring Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont from the New York Times bestselling author of Betrayal of Trust
J. A. Jance
Minor in Possession
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 tearsuntil he is murdered by a bullet fired from Beaumonts 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.
