Independent reviewer for Archaeolibraian – I Dig Good Books What a total mind f**k. This book was insane. It was crazy. It was gruesome. It was a perfectly written thriller suspense that leaves you on the edge of your seat the entire story, hanging on the last sentence. This author has the ability to write a story that keeps you hanging, keeps you guessing, and keeps you grasping for ideas, page after page. Her ability to write such vivid details and descriptions is top notch. It’s absolutely incredible. You won’t have a single moment where you’re scratching your head guessing what’s happening. She lays it out for you, word for word, just like a perfect painting. The story details are crazy. The characters are equal part crazy and insane. The story feels like I stepped into an episode of Criminal Minds for lack of a better description. I happen to absolutely love the show but I only reference the story because her writing mimics the way in the tv show the characters get together and try to solve the case and the steps they take in getting information and solving it. I think the author did an absolute phenomenal job researching and having the ability to write such a great story. So, would I recommend this book? You betcha! However, first, I definitely recommend to read her story “Gabriel” as it is referenced several times in this book, then prepare yourself for a wild ride. I cannot wait for book two to come out, without a question; I will for sure be reading it. I have to know more. I’m addicted to this authors writing now. *A Copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
If you've read Tracie Podger before, you know that she has the uncanny ability to weave stories that will keep you up at night, wondering what happens next. And probably pay extra attention to the dark corners just to make sure that nothing unexpected is going to jump out from them. Well, this story doesn't disappoint. It will catch you from the very beginning and make your head spin until the very end. Probably even after that. And don't be surprised if you find yourself sleeping with one eye open ;) The truth is, I am not really sure how to review the book. My head is still spinning from this heart-stopping thriller. One of the things I really enjoyed about the plot is that it is unpredictable. No matter what you think will happen, you should expect that there is something else around the corner. I loved Mich and Eddie and their seemingly casual relationship. They are both intriguing, brooding and carry secrets that can destroy them. And unfortunately, the gruesome murders are entwined with their past, present and will leave deep scars into their future. The idea of using the seven deadly sins as a backdrop in the story is simply genius. But then, what else can you expect from Tracie Podger :D Those of you who've read her before, know that she is one of the very few authors that will keep you on the edge of your seat and never let you down. And if you haven't read her yet, that's a huge miss on your part. So get your #oneclick finger ready and pick up your copy :) This review was originally posted at Living In Our Own Story Book Blog. I received an ARC of the book in exchange of an honest review.
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.
5 Stars!!! I was given this book in turn for an honest review. Mich Curtis thought he had left his sins behind him. When a case touches closer to home than he ever imagined, can he protect his own life as well as the lives of those around him? A Deadly Sin is more than just a mystery crime thriller; Tracie Podger takes you into a world of dark, psychological torture. It is not only torture for Mich Curtis who has no clue of what path lies ahead of him, it is also torture for us the reader as we find our mind processing all the clues desperate to find the person behind the horrendous and terrifying crimes. Each time we feel we might have a grasp of who the psychopath is, another revelation is revealed and has our minds processing each clue once again. Each revelation is delivered with amazement and disbelief that someone could go so far and be so cruel to deliver a message. This crime journey is not for the faint hearted and I would be surprised if no one begins to question the mind of Tracie Podger. She has revealed her dark, twisted and vicious mind and wow what a mind it is to be inside; A Deadly Sin is without a doubt an outstanding story and one of my top reads of 2016!!! It’s hard to give this book the full admiration and praise it deserves without giving away some of the story line, and that is something I simply refuse to do. What I can add is that if you are a fan of crime, thriller and suspense stories you must give A Deadly Sin by Tracie Podger a try. She has put her heart and soul into this book and genre and once again has delivered an excellent book that is worthy of way more than the five stars I can give.
