Acne-ridden Christian detective, Mark 'Pizza' Parlour, must find the killer among his own congregation when an ex-serviceman slumps head-first into a plate of chocolate eclairs at the Church Council meeting. But the murderer appears to have ascended into thin air. This is the first in the DI 'Pizza' Parlour series.
Review: I really enjoyed this. Don't be put off by the Christian detective and church setting - it' s very much taking a potshot at ridiculous pompous Christian types whilst not being offensive about the faith. It was very cleverly done. Lots of red herrings but plausible, which is what you want from a Whodunnit to avoid feeling fobbed off. Heartily recommended.
Likeable main character. Decent plot.
All So Deceivingly Pleasant
What a twisty roller coaster ride of a book! The author hooked me right away and made me want to read ever faster to find out whodunnit! Thoroughly enjoyable! What’s next?
This is a quintessential British murder mystery, with added quotes and asides from present day. I enjoyed this cleverly written and plotted book. The characters were 3-dimensional, quirky and entertaining. Well done!
