Review: Parrot & Sweeney
The kidnapping of an innocent child. The murder of a witchy, widely hated socialite. A shooting with ties to the banking crisis and economic meltdown. It's all in a day's work for Detective Chief Superintendent George Parrot and his partner Detective Inspector Daniel Sweeney.
Alan Roberts' Parrot & Sweeney (Alan Roberts, 2012) is a delightful trilogy of good, old-fashioned detective stories. There are no explosions, car chases, or shoot-outs here. Instead, Parrot and Sweeney solve cases with police work, deduction, and the occasional bit of luck. Humorous, clever, and entertaining, Parrot & Sweeney is a very enjoyable read.
I received a complimentary copy of Parrot & Sweeney to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. For full disclosure, see the sidebar.
