I enjoyed the 1st book in this series, as it was well-written and the dialogue between the detective and his constable was witty. This 2nd book is still well-written, but the writer is repeating the same dialogue as previously used. How many times do I want to read that the detective likes 'coffee with four sugars' and the constable calling the detective "mean"? Also, the relationship between the constable's mother and the detective is bordering on unprofessional and the details of their sex life is are totally unnecessary. I don't plan to read the 3rd book in the series.

Love the murder mysteries and this one is no exception. For so long I was stuck on 2 authors only, but now have found another one to add to my growing list. I bought this second book not realizing it was a series of 3 and after reading it I have since bought the third. The storyline was intense and the relationships between the characters kept me not wanting to put the book down.

I read books 1 - 3 of the Parish & Richards series back-to-back. Therefore, the reviews are being posted all at one time.

In "Wages of Sin" DI (Detective Inspector) Parish and his trainee, Richards, are once again on the case of a serial killer who targets "sinful" women. After a seven year hiatus, a psychopath starts killing again. He is mutilating women, and hanging them upside down in abandoned buildings with a meat hook through their ankles. Pinned to their breasts are messages in ancient languages.

As Parish and Richards begin their investigation, the disgraced Chief Inspector (CI) Trevor Naylor seeks to destroy Parish, while the killer has decided Mary Richards will make the perfect mother for his children. However, Ruben has a problem. He's impotent because of his diabetes and it sends him into a killing rage. When Ruben kidnaps Mary, the clock starts ticking, Parish has hours to save her. Unfortunately, Parish, is unconscious in the hospital due to Naylor's murderous actions. Sorry, can't say more without spoilers.

This author has a gift for all the elements of good fiction, and this entry is a grabber. He makes you care about all the characters, not just the nice ones, and has a good handle on the nuts and bolts of humanity. Well done.

The storyline was good, the banter among all the detectives was entertaining. There is something at the end that made me feel the story isn't completely over. I sure did like the comeuppance one of the characters got. The only thing I didn't like was having the killer be autistic. Maybe I'm overly sensitive to that, because my nephew is autistic, but it just rubbed me the wrong way.

The concept was good. It was spoiled with too much extraneous details. Evidently the author was trying to add additional pages.

I found this book and it's predecessor while searching for British police procedural novels and was somewhat disappointed with it from that standpoint. These are not the classic procedural novels that I was used to but Mr. Ellis has written novels that are amusing and interesting with plenty of twists and turns. Just as I would be ready to lay the book down I would come across another incident that would make me keep reading and losing another 30 or 45 minutes of sleep. I find it difficult to give a book a 5 star rating as many seem to do with ease. The book must be very exceptional in my opinion to get such a rating and few are. Having said that I would feel comfortable giving this book a 4 star rating if not for one thing. Please, please Mr. Ellis, drop the "Sirr" and "You are so mean" and let Richards grow up a bit. It is amazing how such small things can detract from an otherwise excellent read. I found myself dreading the next instance of either or both of the sayings and cringing when I came upon them. I will read additional books by this author and will recommend this series of books to others and try to overlook the "sirrs and means" if I come upon them in future books. Perhaps it is just me.
