REVIEW for South of Hell by P.J. Parrish

TITLE: South of Hell
AUTHOR: P.J. Parrish

DATE: August 2008

GENRE: Thriller


This is the most recent book in the Louis Kincaid series. PJ Parrish (who are actually two authors) have written another winner!I love Louis Kincaid - he is dark, broody and honest!!! In this latest book, we find Kincaid back in his old stomping grounds trying to help another cop try to put away a murderer - but there are a few problems - one of them being that the cop is not being totally honest with Kincaid.With the help of Joe, Kincaid will find himself, investigating a cold case, in which a young girl's life may be at stake.Parrish is great with details - just enough to give you a real sens of the surroundings in which Kincaid finds himself. In most of their books, there is a decrepit, abandoned (or almos) building and South of Hell is no exception - I LOVED the chilling description of the house, especially the kitchen and the barn. I was getting goose bumps just reading it - you just know something bad happened there.The pace of this book is just perfect - however, I have to say that I prefer Louis minus Joe. For some reason, the relationship does not jive for me and I do see Louis as a loner - but I do see why Joe had to play such an important role in this book.What is also interesting is that with each book, we get a little more of an insight into who Louis truly is and where he came from.I LOVED, LOVED this book. RUN TO BUY IT.
