Getting old is hell. J. P. Beaumont is finally taking some time off to have his knee replacement surgery. But instead of taking his mind off work, the operation plunges him into one of the most perplexing and mind-blowing mysteries he's ever faced. A series of dreams take him back to his early days on the force at Seattle P.D. and then, even earlier, to his days in Vietnam, reminding him of people and events he hasn't thought about in years. Are they just drug-induced hallucinations? Beaumont isn't so sure.

Working on a cold case while "on leave" isn't Beaumont's usual, and I enjoyed it. Yes, it started off slowly, but give the guy a break. He's recovering from double knee replacement surgery. In reality, he would be a lot slower than he is shown to be. Knowing what surgery and post-surgery drugs do to one's brain, that part of the plot's not far fetched. I also appreciated his tribute to vets. I enjoy all Jance's series, but Beau's my favorite. They're a quick read, but always have meat and a moral point to them.

J A Jance is one of my favorite authors-love all her books.

I used to love zipping through these J.P Beaumont novels, but this drifted off into slow-poke territory. Maybe because I've gravitated toward Daniel Silva, Alex Berenson, Robert Crais, and Micheal Connelly lately, Jance's pacing and characters seem pokey in comparison. It was disappointing because I've enjoyed her books so much in the past.
