#Review The Last Sin by KL Murphy @klmurphyauthor #Mystery #Crime
When I started this book I thought the title was weird, ‘The Last Sin’. It just seemed like something erotic or sexual instead of a crime/mystery story. Then I realized it had a lot of references to the Catholic church. So I understood the title a little more. After reading several chapters I realized the title was perfect. A page turner from the beginning to the end.
Just when you think you have everything figured out the author throws something new into the pot and stirs everything up. Readers are kept guessing as to who actually committed the crime. Was it an old friend? Or maybe it was a random act? Keep turning the pages because you will want to know who committed the deed.
I enjoyed how the author put in two different crimes with traces back to the victim. Was it this or that to cause the demise of Father Holland?
This is a perfect book to stay up all night reading. The perfect book for that book hangover you will have the next day at work. You will not regret it. Hurry click over and get your copy so you can start on this book now!
The bunnies and I highly recommend this book. I have not read the other two books in this series but I do not feel I needed to read them to understand anything happening in this story. Yes, I will get them to read but I it is not required.
I admit I am in love with Detective Cancini. Then I would love to have confession with Father Joe. Don’t care that I am not Catholic. He is a sweet wonderful man.
This is a fast pace story. There seems like a lot of chapters but they are short and keep the story moving along. Some of the chapters jump back in time to help explain why someone did something. However, this just adds to the story.
Thanks for an amazing read!
The Last Sin
by KL Murphy
Detective Mike Cancini has seen some dark days, but his skills are put to the test when a priest is discovered, brutally murdered in a run-down church in Washington, D.C. The man who discovered the body is none other than Cancini’s longtime friend and confidant, Father Joe Rossi. The murdered priest, Father Matthew Holland, was adored by the congregation, and it seems clear that this was a crime of opportunity in a deteriorating neighborhood.
However, Cancini soon learns some shocking details from the church secretary, and begins to suspect that Father Holland was not as saintly as he may have appeared. This new information leads to a trail of bribes and decades of corruption polluting the church. Cancini must confront his own struggles with his faith and uncover the truth of the conspiracy before more people are killed.
