Review: Suspense by Parnell Hall

Suspense (The Stanley Hastings Mystery Novels)Suspense by Parnell Hall

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Parnell Hall sets up the rules for writing suspense in this novel: literally. Kenneth P. Winnington, husband of Stanley Hastings' new client, writes suspense novels for a living and is happy to share them: Don't write in first person. Don't use a continuing character. Don't let the hero know the danger he's in.

Parnell Hall breaks all these rules in the commission of this novel, including one more, but revealing it here would give away the ending.
