Details (if other): Cancel. Thanks for telling us about the problem. A Willows and Parker Mystery by. Laurence Gough.

Book by Gough, Laurence. It was very entertaining reading how the dynamic duo investigates the crime, and how they interact with each other during the investigation. Very interesting and entertaining book, recommended.

Willows’ favourite was a guy named Bobby Chow. Once upon a time Bobby had been a high profile drug lawyer, but he’d made a serious mistake - sold his services for a kilo of cocaine in lieu of cash hen the case went to court, Bo. . Once upon a time Bobby had been a high profile drug lawyer, but he’d made a serious mistake - sold his services for a kilo of cocaine in lieu of cash hen the case went to court, Bobby lost. And his client, looking to settle the score and maybe knock a few years off his sentence, had sold Bobby down the river. Suddenly Bobby Chow had almost ten thousand a month in overhead, and zero income. He’d bought himself a good lawyer, but the lawyer hadn’t been good enough.

Book in the A Willows and Parker Mystery Series). Claire Parker and Jack Willows are Vancouver detectives who are called to investigate a bizarre crime. The body of a man, strangely frozen in a lotus position, has been found in a Chinese ornamental garden. Around the same time, two young men decide to go beyond petty theft, and a housewife can't seem to shake the memory of her handsome car jacker. Strangely enough, these three events become intertwined and Parker and Willows must sort everything out. Watching everything come together is always so much fun in Gough's books.

I had no clue this was an older book being republished. I like the way the author told multiple stories inside of one and brought them together towards the end. Each mini story inside would appear every few chapters swapping between them to move you along at the same pace until they all meld together. From the police and their intriguing team relationship to the crime partners and their own twists. Throw in some lust, a bunch of darkness and a frozen corpse and you have the makings of a fine mystery and who-dun-it.

I breezed pretty quick through the book and only had one or two small spots that seemed slow. the rest flowed well. A couple times I was unsure who was talking as the paragraphs did not define it well enough or the breaks did not match. That is editing as well as the author and kept this from 5 stars.

Overall I won't say much more so I do not ruin any twists or turns. There are many characters, a few subplots and only one ending. The police have to solve the why, when and who of the frozen corpse.

Great crime story. I love the way the stories of the various characters are interwoven. The dialog is believable as is the relationship between Willow and Parker. I had to keep reminding myself that this took place not too long ago, before anyone had a cell phone! I could not have predicted the way it would end, always a sign of a good story. Just bought another book by this author, can't wait to read it.

Now is the hard part, coming up with the twenty words required by the silly Amazon people.

I don't want to give anything away. I enjoyed reading this book.

I was hooked from the very first page and the action continued through out the book. Entertaining and well written.
This book was first published in 1990, but still relevant to today's society and crime scene scene. This is the fourth book in the series, featuring Jack Willows and Claire Parker again, and once again this duo made for some entertaining reading.
They have to investigate the death of a man, found in a peculiar setup at a restaurant.
It was very entertaining reading how the dynamic duo investigates the crime, and how they interact with each other during the investigation.
Very interesting and entertaining book, recommended.
