A unknown black male is found heaped in a dumpster. J.P. Beaumont is on the case. Through a series of connections, Beaumont figures out who the man is: a leading high school basketball coach who just lost at the finals before he was murdered.Jance presents us with an entire array of suspects and they keep us interested and reading well into the night. Yet, there are definitely deadends, as promising though they may have first seemed, an interesting and distant wife who isn't laying her cards on the table, some racial issues bring cause for consideration of certain suspects, an angry father is brought into the mix and we just don't know whodunit until the very final pages -- yet with almost no clues, somewhere around a third of the way through the book, the reader may start to find their gut leading them in an unlikely direction. Gut reactions sometimes tell us a whole lot.Beaumont is entirely likeable and human. This is no supercop who is spit shined and blemish free. Beaumont's life is his job; other than that, things are a mishmash. He drinks too much at times, he has many life regrets, he doesn't get the respect he should get from his peers -- and yet, he remains true to his work, and of course, triumphs!A great character. Certainly a favorite among J.A. Jance readers.Really enjoyable, eminently readable mystery, as it should be... despite the lost sleep that may come with opening the cover!A Definite Winner!
