#24 in the J.P. Beaumont series. This 2019 series entry by author J.A. Jance is a fine continuation to the series story arc. The story starts somewhat slowly with repetitive pieces of Beau's backstory and it doesn't help that he excuses it with the excuse that he is old and allowed to repeat himself - it just seemed like lazy writing or editing. But once the book got into the swing of things, the story moved well and was an entertaining read.

Former Seattle homicide cop, J. P. Beaumont, is now a private eye, more out of boredom than need. One day Alan Dale, an old acquaintance, shows up at his door with a six-week-old baby girl named Athena. Athena's drug-addicted mother, Naomi, who abandoned the infant at the hospital after giving birth, has gone missing. Alan also admits that Naomi is his daughter. Beau thinks it's a simple case of finding a homeless mother, but he soon discovers that a past indiscretion of his is linked to the case. The stakes rise as his search uncovers the murder of Athena's father, a real estate scandal, and the theft of the baby's inheritance. What starts out as a missing person's case becomes a life-changing event for Beau and his wife, police chief Mel Soames.
