Beaumont is back

October's mystery fiction recent picks include the latest in J.A. Jance's Beaumont series. Seattle cop J. P. Beaumont has the same job, working with the city's Special Homicide Investigation Team; the same girlfriend, fellow investigator Mel Soames; the same straight-shooting, stick-to-it, never-say-quit attitude. The Beaumont series has been going strong for more than 20 years now, and this time around Beaumont tackles the death of an ex-con. Also included this month: a forensic anthropologist investigates a possible death by spontaneous combustion in the Hebrides, a crime writer becomes embroiled in a mystery of his own, Daisy Dalrymple stumbles into yet another mystery, and Nick Stone's new novel is on show.
