Minor in Possession
by J.A. Jance
Book #8 in the J.P. Beaumont series (1990)
A gripping story of buried truths, deceit, and sudden, brutal death from the New York Times bestselling author of “Long Time Gone.”
The Arizona alcohol rehab ranch was no picnic for J.P. Beaumont. First they stuck him in a room with a sleazy, teen-age drug dealer named Joey Rothman. Then they sicked the local law on him when the punk was discovered shot dead with Beaumont’s own .38.
An all-around punk, Joey deserves neither pity nor tears–until was is murdered by a bullet fired from Beaumont’s gun.
Someone has set Beau up brilliantly for a long and terrifying fall, dragging the alcoholic ex-cop into a conspiracy of blood and lies that could cost him his freedom . . . and his life.
