EXCERPT: From Chapter 1
" “Thank you, Jonas,” she said in a voice that was surprisingly quaver-free. “Thank you very much.”
Most of the time I go by the name of Beau or by my initials, J. P. Only two people in the world have ever called me Jonas—my mother, who has been dead for many years, and now my grandmother. It was only in the course of the last few months, after accidentally encountering my estranged grandparents’ name and address in the phone book, that my mother’s mother had emerged from the shadows of the long-buried past into the present. At eighty-six, Beverly Piedmont came into my life as both a puzzle and a blessing.
Now she was also a widow.
My grandfather and namesake, Jonas Logan Piedmont, was dead at age ninety-one.
I turned the key in the ignition, and the Porsche’s powerful engine roared to life. With headlights slicing through sheets of slanting raindrops, we headed for Newton’s Family Mortuary off Aurora Avenue, where Mr. Lloyd Newton, III, at age sixty or so, had been genuinely dismayed when my grandmother had told him in no uncertain terms that there would be no services for my grandfather.
“Absolutely not,” she had announced determinedly. “At our ages, there aren’t that many people still around that we know, and we only see them at weddings or funerals. These days there are a lot more funerals than weddings. Each time, someone else turns up missing. It’s too depressing.”
Her decree had brooked no argument. Mr. Newton had been forced to comply with reasonably good grace.
“Are you taking care of yourself?” I asked, glancing in her direction as I threaded through evening traffic made worse by the steady downpour. A rain-slicked layer of newly fallen leaves covered the gutters and blocked Seattle’s storm drains, leaving the streets awash. “Are you eating properly? Getting enough rest?”
“Mandy’s the one you should be worried about,” my grandmother returned with a shake of her head. “That crazy old dog won’t eat a thing.”
I remembered how Mandy used to sit for hours in mute companionship with my stroke-silenced, wheelchair-bound grandfather. She usually stuck close enough to his side that the slightest movement of his faltering hand would bring his flesh into contact with her patiently waiting head.
“Try bread and peanut butter,” I suggested. “That’s how Kelly and Jeremy get their dog, Sunshine, to take her arthritis medicine. Kelly claims there isn’t a dog in the world that doesn’t love bread and peanut butter.”
Six months earlier, it would have been inconceivable to me that my daughter—Kelly, the complete airhead, as I once disparagingly called her—would end up passing out dog-care advice to her great-grandmother, but Beverly Piedmont nodded as though granting Kelly’s suggestion serious consideration. “That sounds like a good idea,” she said. “I believe I’ll give it a try.”

Beau is called to investigate a rather gruesome murder. A man’s boat is set on fire, with him handcuffed to a table after being tortured, and he burns to death. Beau is surprised that the people connected to the victim are some old classmates he hasn’t seen in decades. Digging deeper, he discovers the current crime has its roots in Nazi Germany. It’s a well told mystery, gripping and intriguing. ( )

Voor Dirty Dick en de andere ontspoorde stamgasten. En voor de sportieve veilingmeesters en bezoekers van veilingen voor goede doelen, die voor mij van Seattle een heerlijke plaats maken om te wonen en te schrijven. Maar bovenal voor Thomas Blatt, een overlever en een bron van inspiratie.

De oude witte hond keek me aan toen ik de veranda betrad, maar deed geen poging om overeind te komen en me te begroeten.
The old white dog studied me from her usual place as I stepped up onto the porch, but she made no effort to rise and greet me or even to lift her head off her paws.
