Parrish expertly guides readers along the journey, ensuring that a good time is had by all. Like a fun Maeve Binchy, the characters are warm and lovable and the adventure enjoyable. The writing is tight and the tale breezy and fun. Such stories, while appearing simple and straightforward, are very deceptive and can easily fall flat if not well told, but in Parrish's skilled hands, you'll want to return to the world of Number 59 Kensington Street again and again. When is the next one, Mr. Parrish?
His style is that of a film or television writer with short scenes that take us to different characters so readers can be pulled in to numerous storylines. Almost as if watching an old episode of a favorite 70s/80s television shows that gave us different characters each week on a boat or an island. One can see the influences of those prime time soaps on Parrish's writing as well as some of the classics like Jackie Collins with his own personal spin that gives a fresh take on this well-loved style. I think this technique is quite riveting because it allows you to peer into moments of his characters which all come together as a good mystery should in the end.
I also applaud Carey Parrish for introducing gay characters into his novels who just `happen to be gay' without making any sort of proclamation about it or giving it any different weight. He truly is an author that shows there are all kinds in this world - and those `kinds' inhabit the environment he has created at Number 56 Kensington Street. Give this mystery a try - you'll be glad you did.
