This book was very hard to put down, a real page turner. It has all that makes it a good book--mystery, murder, suspense, and intrigue.

Parrish is in a league with Michael Connelly, Vince Flynn, Greg Iles, and such great authors. Be sure to read her books in the order published. They are great and unputdownable.

This was the first book I read by PJ Parrish. I read it a week and a half ago and went directly to Barnes and Noble to get her other books. I only have 'Island of Bones' left to read *sigh*... I have enjoyed watching the character Louis Kincaid go through all his trials and the subsequent changes in his personality as a direct result of his experiences. He starts off in Dark of the Moon as a good cop working hard to do the right thing. Throughout the series the lines become blurred as to what IS the right thing to do. Parrish repeatedly puts Kincaid into positions where moral right and legal right are often at odds with each other leaving Kincaid in a quandry as to what he should do. Taking the moral ground is usually his choice which leaves his ability to return as an active policeman near impossible. I was afraid Parrish was going to put him back into the role of policeman but the way that she has transformed him into somewhat of a vigilante, it would not make sense for him to return to a more restrictive role as a lawman. Kincaid has learned to dole out his own justice and it is something that many of us would like to do from time to time. I found myself cheering for him breaking the law. I am only sorry that Parrish releases one book a year. Since Island of Bones came out this year I fear I will have to wait another year before reading about Kincaids latest antics.

I first picked this book up for an online book chat group, & now I am a true fan of the P.J. Parrish sisters. I love Louis who is a bicultural cop trying to get along on an all white police force in Black Pool, Mississippi. He returns to his painful roots, to aid his dying mother. He stumbles upon some old bones, & decides to reopen a long forgotten case. I found this mystery to be very realistic, I'm sure many of these mysteries have been buried away in the past. If you want to read a book, that will keep you wanting more then this is the mystery for you. ;) I just couldn't put the book down, until I finished it! That's a sure sign of a great writer. My respects to the Parrish sisters. You have a winner book here!Enjoy your reading. :)

I'm not the best reader in the world. I love reading, but sometimes I get lazy, put a book down, and neglect to pick it up again. That was not possible with 'Dark of the Moon'. It kept me up late. I couldn't turn pages fast enough, yet I hated to see the end draw near. It is a wonderful work, an outstanding novel. I'm very excited to see a second book by P.J. Parrish.
