It was a murder so casually brutal that no one believes it actually happened.

Not the police. Not the editor of the local newspaper.

The paperboy who saw the crime tells the only person he trusts. That person is reporter Rice Channon, known to the police as the Ratcatcher for his past success in identifying murderers.

The cops and Channon’s boss think the boy’s claim is a

Excellent mystery

I loved the characters, the story, the stories ascribed to the characters, and the intrigue. The Ratcatcher himself is an outstanding hero, with few niceties, and fewer friends. Definitely worth a read.

I thought the premise for this book was interesting - a reporter (and others) who sees ghosts and protective spirits such as angels. Other paranormal aspects that are believable if you are open to them.
The era appealed to me - 1970s with much social upheaval and attempted change.
(I admit even with all the changes, some of those battles are still being fought today)
What I didn't care for - the pace of the book was painfully slow. Perhaps certain sections would not have felt as confusing if the

So Says the Ratcatcher is the second story in the Rice Channon Paranormal Mystery by Dennis Anthony. I had read the first a long time ago so did have an understanding of who the Ratcatcher was. Unlike some series it didn't matter if the reader hadn't read the previous book 'Ratcatcher, Be Still' A Rice Channon Mystery.

We meet back with The Ratcatcher aka Rice Channon known to the police as the Ratcatcher because of his past success in identifying murderers. Set in 1972 a brutal murder occurs

As an aficionado of this genre, I was impressed by the quality of writing in this book, which was sufficiently good as to almost distract from its other good qualities, not limited to its very credible characterization and well-crafted plot.

The book has a “gritty noir” feel to it, though it stands out for being set in the 70s, a decade most traditionally ignored where possible; this work however makes its home there very well—most of the scenes felt quite timeless to me, though I daresay someone

Full disclosure, I didn't finish this book. If you are of the opinion that a review without reading the whole thing, skip this one. I generally give books 50 pages before giving up on them. I wanted to like this enough to give it another 50 pages but it just wasn't grabbing me. Since I read to escape, reading that feels like work isn't terribly enjoyable to me.
I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Ratcatcher

A reporter with a twist. He sees ghosts. This is a good story that is a stand alone book, something many series don’t do. I usually don’t like series because the authors don’t finish a story in each book. This author does. Cudos! I will read more of your creative books.
