Getting old is hell. J.P. Beaumont is finally taking some time off to have 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 takes him back to his early days on the force with the Seattle PD, 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. When tugging on those threads from long ago leads to present-day murders, Beau's suspicions are confirmed. Some bodies from the second watch just won't stay buried.

Been a while since I have read a J A Jance book but still enjoyable read, despite the different styles that are around in the intervening years.
If you enjoyed her books before, they should still please you!

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.
