The Last Sin
by KL Murphy
on Tour March 13 - April 14, 2017
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.
I have this thing for covers with creepy houses or churches on them so I was instantly drawn to this book when I saw the cover. And I know they say "Do not judge a book by it's cover" but in this case I can promise you the book itself is even better.

I really enjoyed The Last Sin. It has a great mystery, is written vey well and I really liked the main character Mike Cancini. I really enjoyed the way he handled the case and I am going to read other books in this series just to see if he is like this with all his cases.
But I really liked the writing. It has a nice flow and doesn't linger on important topics, but is not rushed. K.L. Murphy knows how to draw you in and will not let you go untill the last page. She knows how to keep the mystery in there untill the end. It is nearly impossible to stop flipping those pages.
And I know I have said it a lot lately, but I have just been reading to many good books, but I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series and this is one that goes on my "Series to follow list"
My rating: 5/5
