Baker & Taylor
Seattle sleuth J.P. Beaumont seeks a killer in the theatrical world, a search that plunges him into the seedy and deadly world of kiddie porn, where an insane revenge play comes to life


A shattering tale of tragedy and horror from top ten New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance.

A desperate father's search for his runaway daughter has led him to the last place he ever expected to find her: backstage at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. But the murders in this dazzling world of make-believe are no longer mere stagecraft, and the blood is all too real. The hunt for his child has plunged former Seattle Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont into a bone-chilling drama of revenge, greed, and butchery, where innocents are made to suffer in perverse and terrible ways. And many more young lives are at stake, unless he can uncover the villain of the piece before the final, deadly curtain falls.

& Taylor

When J.P. Beaumont trails his runaway daughter Kelly to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, he lands in the middle of an investigation into the murder of a sleazy PI, but Beaumont believes that the accused young actress is innocent, in a tale of revenge, deception, and death. Reissue.

I don't know why but I found it difficult to get into this book. I thought the plot didn't flow smoothly like other Jance's books
