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 almost didn’t review The Last Sin. The synopsis and excerpt really pulled me but I was concerned that there would be disparaging remarks made about Christianity, God, and/or Jesus. After reading this mystery, I can honestly say I’m happy I overcame my hesitations as there was only a sentence or two I didn’t like in the entire book!
What I liked: The Last Sin is an interesting mystery that I enjoyed following.
The players and the winding investigation in a priest’s murder are extremely intriguing! The most compelling character is the priest who’s under suspicion. His internal battle between his vows and right vs wrong was so interesting and something to admire.
What I didn’t like: Although I really enjoyed reading The Last Sin, seeing the humanity and sin of a priest is a difficult thing to read. It’s not that I expect perfection, maybe I just prefer not to know.
