These comments are intended to encompass all three of the books in the series (of which this is the third). Dr. Ransom and his wife Emma have contributed to my walking regime and have turned me into a long distance freak as I cant shut off the iPod when I am into their exciting narratives. I tend to really "get into" a book, if it is riveting. Any one of the three in this series so far qualify as very riveting. Others have described this as the "driveway effect," for me it is the "walk an additional mile" effect. The narration is appropriate and contributes to the enjoyment. I would recommend starting with the first book "Rules of Deception" and working through the three in order....then wait impatiently for number four to appear...(Please hurry Mr. Reich).
He has the formula down pat. Parker has his three stock characters and they are all well done. The writing is crisp, plots are well realized and I find them all wonderful accompaniments to a long run or bike ride. My favorite is Spencer though the chief of police in Paradise is a close second. At this juncture I await the latest Parker as one awaits the whipped cream on a wonderful cup of coffee...not substantial yet the perfect end to a good meal...Now if Parker could only write like Lee Child. As for Sea Change...The topic is disturbing yet engaging..it is well paced..it is a typical Parker. I just hope he keeps turning them out at his usual pace.
