Parrots Prove Deadly: A Pru Marlowe Pet Noire, Book 3 | [Clea Simon]

Parrots Prove Deadly: A Pru Marlowe Pet Noire, Book 3

Parrots will repeat anything. They don’t talk sense—or do they? When Pru Marlowe is called in to retrain a foulmouthed African gray after its owner’s death, she can’t help hearing the parrot’s words as a replay of a murder scene. But the doctor on call scoffs at the idea, and the heirs just want their late mother’s pet to stop cursing.

Publisher's Summary

Parrots will repeat anything. They don’t talk sense—or do they? When Pru Marlowe is called in to retrain a foulmouthed African gray after its owner’s death, she can’t help hearing the parrot’s words as a replay of a murder scene. But the doctor on call scoffs at the idea, and the heirs just want their late mother’s pet to stop cursing.

The only other possible witnesses being an evasive aide, a blind neighbor, and a single-minded service dog, Pru is stuck with what may be a featherbrained theory. Even her crotchety tabby Wallis doesn’t buy it, although Wallis would be more than willing to “interrogate” the bird up close.

Meanwhile, Pru, the bad-girl animal psychic, is also called on to deal with drugs, jealousy, and a potential rabies outbreak.

    "Has Pru Gone Soft?"

    This is the third book in this series. I have become fond of Pru and her cat. Three stars is really too generous but two seemed a little too harsh. The narrator does a great job with the various characters but it is hard to enjoy some of these characters. Her whiny version of Jane - the parrot's current owner, and the parrot itself, do get tiresome. I stopped this book for a while in the middle because it wasn't holding my interest (I eventually finished). Part of that has to do with the fact that I am not as interested in parrots as in cats or even dogs. If you aren't already a fan of this series, I wouldn't start here. Not a whole lot happens in this one. Pru doesn't even show as much personality as she has in previous installments. I guess this is her softer side. On the one hand, she was less pushy in her investigations and didn't do those things that made me cringe in earlier books like showing up at funerals to ask obnoxious questions. Her cat even accuses her of having become domestic. I'm not sure that's a good thing. I'm not in a hurry to go on to book 4.

    "PARROTS ARE PERFECT FOR MYSTERY'S"
    If you could sum up Parrots Prove Deadly in three words, what would they be?

    I absolutely loved this book. I got it because it included a parrot.(I'm a parrot parent) Now I'mm listen to all her books! Better give this one a try if you haven't!


    What other book might you compare Parrots Prove Deadly to and why?

    The Meg Langslow Series by Donna Andrews as she uses birds as characters in her mysteries, too!


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    She is wonderful with all the quirky voices she had to cover and even animals! LOL


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Parrot's Make Perfect Detectives!
