J. P. Beaumont and Brandon Walker, two of New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance?s most acclaimed series characters, join forces for the first time in one of the most suspenseful works of her career.
Years ago, Amos Warren, a prospector, was gunned down out in the desert and Sheriff Brandon Walker made the arrest in the case. Now, the retired Walker is called in when the alleged killer, John Lassiter, refuses to accept a plea deal that would release him from prison with time served. Lassiter wants Brandon and The Last Chance to find Amos?s ?real? killer and clear his name.
Sixteen hundred miles to the north in Seattle, Mel Shames is leaving the Special Homicide Investigation Team thanks to her new job as the Police Chief in Bellingham. Her husband, crack investigator J. P. Beaumont, is dealing with the realities of life as the ?chief?s spouse??and the fact that S.H.I.T. has been unexpectedly and completely disbanded.
Brandon Walker?s search to find the truth about Warren?s killer will lead him from the sunny, hot desert of Cochise County to the damp, cool forests of the Pacific Northwest, where he eventually meets Beau, thanks to lawyer Ralph Ames who connects them. Their meeting proves all too crucial, for soon they must pool their personal and professional expertise to save Mel when her life is threatened by a gun-toting madman who is all too close to her.
From the Back Cover:
Prospector Amos Warren and Big Bad John Lassiter, his young protégé, were as close as father and son until a violent argument tore them apart. The next day, Amos disappeared, never to be seen again. Years later, his bones were found in the desert. All signs pointed to John Lassiter, and Detective Brandon Walker made the arrest in the case.
Now, more than four decades later, the retired Walker is called back to look into the killing. Lassiter?s daughter, Amanda Wasser, wants Brandon and TLC to find Amos?s ?real? killer and clear her father?s name.
Brandon Walker?s search to find the truth about Amos?s killer eventually leads to an unsolved murder that could be connected to the case. Then Brandon gets in touch with crack investigator J. P. Beaumont. Soon, these seasoned detectives must pool their personal and professional expertise when someone close to Brandon falls into the hands of a cold-blooded killer involved in a recent multiple homicide? who may also hold the key to the cold case
?Highly entertaining?an energetic plot resplendent with believable twists, leaving readers eager for Beaumont and Walker?s next outing.? Publishers Weekly (starred review)
