I was a little disappointed when Louis did not see the relationship between the killers methods and the racial connection. I was on to it in the very first murder.

I have read all of PJ Parrish's books and they are all fantastic! This one was no different. If you haven't read any of his books you don't know what you are missing. There is never a dull moment for the reader. I can't wait for the next one!

I have read and enjoyed the novels of Cornwell and Kellerman , and felt I would try what looked like an interesting crime novel. A most fascinating novel. Would highly recommend to others. I will be interested in trying more books by this author. True crime and actual investigatory information --- make a very interesting approach to a novel.

This author is incredible. Reading Parrish's books is like watching a movie. You can easily relate to the characters and feel the emotions of Kincaid as he strives to solve these vicious crimes.

At twenty-six, his police days seem over so when his former boss in Mississippi Sam Dodie calls to offer him some private work, Louis Kincaid leaves his current home in Michigan for Sereno Bay in the Florida Gold Coast. Sam introduces Louis to attorney Scott Beldsoe who wants the former cop to investigate who killed Walter Tatum, the husband of his client. The local police believe Walter¿s wife Roberta and her missing brother Levon Baylis committed the murder that looks like a crime of passion.

Louis immediately realizes that his black skin got him the job because the white lawyer needs someone to communicate with his difficult black client. A second similar murder of a black man, Anthony Quick, soon occurs. As Louis works closely with Police Chief Wainright, a deadly pattern of a nasty serial killer surfaces, one who must be stopped if the carnage is to end.

PAINT IT BLACK is an exciting private sleuth tale that actually reads more like a police procedural because of Louis¿s background and his cooperative alliance with Wainright. The story line is fast-paced and loaded with non-stop action. Louis is an engaging lead character and the support cast augments the plot by allowing the audience to see the star in different relationships. PJ Parrish has crafted a tense serial killer thriller that sub-genre fans will appreciate and they will want to read Kincaid¿s previous novel DARK OF THE MOON.
