Devil to Pay by C. Northcote Parkinson: a short review

Dull. Dreadfully dull. This is, I think, the best in Parkingson’s Richard Delancey series–but this second time through I found myself choking on the stultifying prose. There’s some good action in here, and Delancey seems like an interesting guy, but you’ve got to plow through all that leaden text.

This book is really difficult to recommend. So is the entire Delancey series.
