BOOK REVIEW: JUSTICE DENIED
When Detective J.P. Beaumont is given his latest assignment it seemed to be almost routine. His job was to find out what really happened to LaShawn Tompkins who was shot to death at his motherís home. LaShawn is an ex-drug dealer who was recently released from prison.
As Beaumont starts to investigate this murder, he realizes that it is not just a routine case and much more is involved. Much to everyoneís surprise, LaShawn dedicated much of his time to the King Street Mission where he was helping others.
Beaumont met his lover, Mel, when they were both working for the Washington State Attorney Generalís Special Homicide Investigation Team, better known as the SHIT Squad. Mel started out staying in Beaumontís guest room but over a period of time that changed.
Mel was given an assignment of creating a catalog of the whereabouts of released Washington State sexual offenders. She wasnít too thrilled with this assignment because it seemed like a job to just keep her busy Ė that is until it is discovered that there is some connection between what Mel is doing and the case Beaumont is investigating. What is it?
As if all of this isnít enough, there are several other personal problems going on in Beaumontís life right now that add to the problems.
Is Beaumont successful at finding out what really happened to LaShawn?
