Seattle homicide detective J.P. Beaumont explores a puzzling double murder; the bodies are found in the school department's central office. Recovering alcoholic Beaumont is a low-key kind of guy; the suspects, from an overweight harridan to a frightened lesbian to a teenaged girl, are not. At first, Engene's narration seems choppy; then one realizes that his slow, ironic voice could be Beaumont's own. It captures the portrait of the middle-aged cop perfectly. The fully voiced narration renders each character distinctively, and the deep voice creates an overall tone of quiet rumination. There are eight additional titles in the series.
