Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

South of Hell by P.J. Parrish


Parrish (or should it be Parrishes) have crafted another entertaining thriller.  Once again, Louis Kincaid a former cop who now is a P.I., is ensnared in OPP (other peoples problems).  These problems involve maturity, death, philandering, friendship, love and perhaps a tiny pinch of the occult.   

Louis’s friend Mel plays a very small part in this book.  His failing health saddens Louis.   Louis’s girl friend is going to run for sheriff in Michigan.  This driving of roots makes Louis aware of the widening rift with him and Joe.   A Michigan detective requests Louis’s help on a case.   It seems serendipitous to be paid to fly to Michigan so he incorporates his work and a reunion with Joe.   Louis’s journal to see Joe is in an area of Michigan where multi-racial affairs may be seen askew.  The reunion leads to his embroilment in not only an old murder but an even older murder. 


Amy and Lily, two children, share some similarities in their desire to reach their roots.   Louis finds a part of himself that he never knew he lost.  Joe discovers things about herself she never knew she had.   There were both touching and highly disturbing scenes in this book.  Overall, this was a better book than The Little Death Parrish book I read back in 2010.   

I recommend the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
