Synopsis:

With Second Watch, New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance delivers another thought-provoking novel of suspense starring Seattle investigator J. P. Beaumont. Second Watch shows Beaumont taking some time off to get knee replacement surgery, but instead of taking his mind off work, the operation plunges him into one of the most perplexing mysteries he's ever faced. His past collides with his present in this complex and thrilling story that explores loss and heartbreak, duty and honor, and, most importantly, the staggering cost of war and the debts we owe those who served in the Vietnam War, and those in uniform today.

My Thoughts: 

While I was reading this book my boyfriend was in a similar situation medically he was having a Anterior Spinal Fusion.  Our beloved loved Cop J.P Beaumont is recovering from double knee-replacement surgery and being visited by ghosts of his past one a young woman from a cold case he was investigating the other was an old military buddy who died during the war and in Beau's mind saved him from dying with a book.

Beau is visited by a young woman who died in the 80's and her case was never solved and it turned into a cold case in which got buried until Beau decided to do the unthinkable to solve her murder.  Figuring that technology would definitely be on his side by now.  Which leads to old cops being talked to, old witnesses being located and finding the answers for the young girl's family.  Which leads them all over Seattle and New Mexico.

As for the old military buddy that was great to see Beau was like way back and then and the things he dealt with.  He decides to find Douglas Davis's fiance and tell her what her fiance meant to him.  What he finds is so much more a woman who had a great love and was so pleased to connect with Beau and hear about her love and how much he meant to others.  

I loved this story, heck this is one of the first murder mystery series I started with way back when and I have loved watching the things Beau has gone through and over come!  Definitely a great series and I'm so glad that Ms. Jance continues this series and updates Beau with iPads and iPhones.  Such a great adventure to go on!

Author Bio:

A voracious reader, J. A. Jance knew she wanted to be a writer from the moment she read her first Wizard of Oz book in second grade. Always drawn to mysteries, from Nancy Drew right through John D. McDonald's Travis Magee series, it was only natural that when she tried her hand at writing her first book, it would be a mystery as well. J. A. Jance went on to become the New York Times bestselling author of the J. P. Beaumont series, the Joanna Brady series, three interrelated thrillers featuring the Walker family, and Edge of Evil. Born in South Dakota and brought up in Bisbee, Arizona, Jance lives with her husband in Seattle, Washington, and Tucson, Arizona.
