PJ Parrish is just good readin'...There has not been one of the sisters books that I have not given a minimum of 4 stars to I believe. The Louis Kincaid character is one that a reader can easily buddy up to and looks forward to getting to know more and more!

This is another in the excellent series featuring detective Louis Kincaid. This time the ex-husband of Louis' current girlfriend snatches their son and Louis goes after him. Generally, I avoid books around stolen children. They are cheap as plot devices and way too predictable. But, Parrish avoids everything obvious and turns out an excellent story - once again. I am a little concerned, however, since their (P.J. is actually two sisters) website has been shut down. I hope they are busy writing i ...more

A KILLING RAIN was the first book I read by this duo author. It is the 6th installement in a series. Although I have not read any of the previous books, I was still able to get into the storyline very quickly! It was fast paced- action from beginning to end. I found Louis to be a very likeable character and I look forward to reading more of his story and his previous and next cases to come. Excellent read!!

I know I'm reading these out of order, but they aren't easy to get my hands on. I was glad I read this one though. It explains where Joe comes from in the other one I read. And it explains more about Louis's aloofness, his loneliness. An excellent series.

The characters are all pretty stereotypical, and don't show much growth. And the plot isn't brilliant. But the pacing is very impressive. Tense, taut, tightly written.

Even though this one is classified as a mystery I think of it as a suspense or thriller. It was the usual great book written by Parrish.

This was the sixth book in the Louis Kincaid series and just didn't grab me like the others have. The mystery seemed a little drawn out, but finally picked up towards the end. Louis is still in Florida and appears to be getting involved with the attorney, Susan Outlaw until her ex-husband comes back into the picture and the mystery starts with him and her son. Louis ends up meeting a detective from Miami, Joelle Frye, that his dectective friend Mel Landetta refers him too for assistance on this ...more
