Smexy times - there was alot in this book that it took away from the story, and honestly, the h was in pain alot of the times they did it. Although this isn’t really a “horror novel” as such, it certainly takes influence from them during a few moments and, like a classic 1980s splatterpunk horror novel, this isn’t a novel for the easily shocked. I feel a bit hesitant about watching the TV series now as this novel overall just didn’t work for me. So, I thought that I’d take a look at Tess Gerritsen’s 2003 novel “The Sinner”, which I ended up finding a second-hand copy of online shortly after enjoying Gerritsen’s “ The Apprentice” about a month or so earlier.

Cora's hatred towards doctors because they can say something is wrong with you and no one can say otherwise and Frankie is a doctor. Yeah, the translation may have been rough sometimes but if you're going to read a German author you're gonna have to accept that before going in. When one of Shakespeare’s boy actors goes missing, and Bianca discovers a disturbing painting that could be a clue, she embarks on her own investigation. Even the murderer sometimes seems at a loss to explain his actions, and we sense that the final answer will expose the moral workings of his whole generation, who have fallen into the trap of utilitarianism, determined to found peaceful utopias by violent means. I have to say, I’m usually very lucky when it comes to reading translated fiction – the narration always flows, and I never feel anything was lost in translation.All in all, although I slightly preferred Gerritsen’s “The Apprentice” to this novel, it’s still a really good detective thriller story 🙂 If you want a police procedural story with a bit of extra drama and horror, and a wonderfully wintery setting, then this one is certainly well worht reading.

A young mother, Cora Bender, seemingly content with her husband and little son, suddenly stabs out at a man in a beach as he makes out with his wife, and kills him brutally. I had a hard time getting through the first 100 pages, and felt bad that I forced my friends to read this.She lives in Oklahoma with her high school sweetheart, who is a wonderful, supportive husband and their two daughters.

In addition to being confusing, the book was long and drawn out, waiting for the big reveal at the very end after slogging through pages and pages of lies and filler that served absolutely no purpose other than maybe to make the characters seem more "real", but to me just fell flat. This is my second venture into Shantel Tessier's world, and OMG, I wasn’t expecting to love "The Sinner" this much. But it would be a mistake to read the title as referring to Lacenaire the Sinner, and Dostoevsky the Saint.In his editorial note on the Russian translation he commissioned, Dostoevsky wrote that accounts of criminal trials like this are “more exciting than all possible novels because they light up the dark sides of the human soul that art does not like to approach”.
