I read Patricia Cornwell books in the past. I picked up one of PJ's novels from a thrift store and fell in love with the series. A+++++

I just think it's awesome that my professor Dr. Sue Steffel is in this book. That alone makes me like it. Dr. Steffel should be in more books because she is amazing.

In Devil's Garden on the Archer Ranch, cowboys find the body of a man in approximately the same place that the corpse of the owner's son was found twenty-eight years ago. The police identify the dead person as Mark Durand, lover of Reggie Kent of Palm Beach. Reggie is a walker who escorts wealthy women to events that their husbands do not want to attend. The work enables him to enter the upper crust of society without spending any of his money and excludes sex. Police detective Roy Barbary believes Reggie killed Mark during a lover's quarrel and in a further fit if rage decapitated the victim. Private investigator Louis Kincaid with his friend former cop Mel Landeta, who is going blind, arrive to help the latter's pal Reggie clear his name. As they investigate, they discover two more similar homicides spread out over the years with the decapitated bodies found at that same spot. The men have in common being studly handsome in physique and looks and financially needy. Louis believes if the killer(s) is not stopped soonest, a fourth murder will occur, but the answers are concealed inside the close knit elite of Palm Beach society; a place where a dick and an ex cop will never gain entrance. P.J. Parrish always provides a strong tale starring a special hero who is black working in white Palm Beach without regard to the rage of the affluent locals that a working class African-American dare question any of them; three strikes and he still swings the bat. Filled with plenty of action but clearly character driven, The Little Death is a top notch whodunit. Harriet Klausner

The Little Death by P.J. Parrish The newest Louis Kincaid book will be out in February. I got a sneak peak, and wow what a ride! Mel has a friend in Palm Beach that needs help. He's accused of killing his boyfriend. Mel takes Louis along to help figure out who really did it. The mystery is soon complicated by more bodies, many more suspects and very un-accommodating law enforcement. They do have one cop that is willing to help, Lt. Swann, and I hope we haven't seen the last of him. He was a great character. There are quirky rich women, irate husbands, illegal aliens, cowboys, an actual sex scene for Louis, and so much more. This has a mystery that will keep you guessing to the end and the ending will floor you! This is an outstanding mystery that you won't be able to put down. The Parrish sisters are on a roll and keep getting better and better. Put this on your list of MUST READS! Best book of 2010!

The plot - Mallory has a one-night stand with vampire Jonathan. He has only one rule, to never spend more than one night with a woman. Unfortunately, Cian has a tendency of tracking down Jonathon’s conquests and Mallory is the next one on the list. He stalks her, he wants her to be his grail. However, that’s not something she wants to be. Mallory is a scared but does a fairly good job holding her own against Cian – with Jonathan’s help. Because of course, he can’t stay away and that’s what attracts Cian to her. Now if only Jonathon can save Mallory from Cian – without falling in love.  Is it wrong that my favorite character was Cian? Nothing against Mallory or Jonathon, I like Cian as the antagonist. He has the smarmy conscienceless attitude that makes him creepy yet interesting. The interactions between all three that eventually lead to the ending really kept me hooked. However, I have mixed emotions regarding this book. I loved the story line. What I found irritating was the dialog. Not what they said because frankly whether it was sexual or in the vampire gonna-scare-you style, it was fitting in the story. What annoyed me were the constant… broken… unfinished… sentences of dialog that were wearing me down. The story is told in first person by Mallory and her internal monologues didn’t seem to have this issue. Only the external… conversations… did. Really, I get that there is a time and place for unfinished sentences. However, I felt that there was an excessive amount of them and after a fashion, they began to distract me from what was really a good story. But then again - it could be just me… Stilted conversation aside, this was a good story. The characters were well fleshed out enough to make you either like or hate them. The plot was fascinating with its quick twist. This is my first book by author Scarlett Parrish and would not hesitate to read any more of her writings. Anyone who like vampires story will enjoy this book. I received this book from JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated. Stars– 3, Flames – 2.5
