3.0 out of 5 stars Weakest so far, but still good!, 30 Nov. 2011
This review is from: The Shadow of Death (Parish & Richards Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
I loved the first three books in the Parish & Richards series but personally I found this one slightly disappointing (3 1/2 stars would be more accurate). Its difficult to give my main gripe with this book without giving away a main plot point, so I'm going to keep it cryptic. This issue I had is that upon returning to work, Parish (and others) take certain actions regarding his first case back. Without going into too much detail I found it annoyingly unbelievable that his investigation was run from the location it was after a five minute meeting with a new character. Normally this kind of thing doesn't normally bother me, and it may not bother you, but I spent large portions of the book distracted thinking 'why did he do that, he's supposed to be intelligent'? If this part of the review sounds confusing then read the first two chapters and it'll all make sense :)

Its not all bad though. The trademark Parish and Richards traits of being an easy read story is here, and one that keeps you turning the pages at that (or whatever the Kindle equivalent of a page is!). I don't mind the sometimes repetitive "You're so mean Sir" and other catchphrases throughout the book, people can be like that can't they? The story arch of 'Who is Jed Parish?' continues in this instalment. Does he find the truth? You'll have to buy the book to find out. And at this price why not, despite the flaws its a very entertaining read. I'll certainly be buying the next instalment.
