BLURB:
 
There are seven deadly sins, so they say.
Pride, Envy, Wrath, Gluttony, Lust, Sloth, and Greed.
We are guilty of them all. But what happens when someone decides to become judge, jury, and executioner of those that commit these sins?
Detective Mich Curtis is thrown back into a world he thought he’d managed to struggle out of.
It started as a simple murder case to solve – it became a fight to survive.
Seven sins, seven murders – who will be the last man standing?
The executioner or the only person fucked up enough to get inside his mind?

Suspense/thriller for readers over the age of 18

My Rating:




Favorite Quote:



She growled, like an animal...She barred her teeth and I watched every muscle on her body tense.  If she could, she would have pounced, she would have torn me limb from limb.  She was like a caged animal; she'd regressed beyond the point humans walked on two legs.  They'd broken her.



My Review:


Tracie Podger is an evil genius... and grr, I fear she has broken me.  Far and away from my typical genre of women's fiction, I was totally enthralled with this twisted and diabolical story, despite the plethora of chilling and gruesome thoughts, memories, and crimes mentioned. This killer's story was creepy, eerie, gooseflesh-inducing, taut with intrigue and suspense, and ingeniously paced and expertly detailed to keep the reader on edge.  A Deadly Sin reminded me of a cross between the Brad Pitt movie of Seven and Alfred Hitchcock's version of Psycho, but even better.  I was totally invested and had remained engaged from page one until the worst thing in the world that could have happened - happened... I stamped my little foot, I turned the air blue with every obscene word I knew and even made up a few new invectives to hurl at Ms. Podger's likeness on her facebook page...  She dared to end this fiendishly clever and addicting installment with an ungodly cliffhanger.  Arg!  How cruel and inhumane!?!  I detest cliffhangers with the heat of a thousand suns!  A pox on her for ruining me... but only after she writes the next equally intriguing book at the speed of light - that does not end in another cursed cliffhanger.  THEN a pox should be delivered!  And it should be a really itchy one ;)
