The vital clue lies locked in away in a memory - a memory that now wants to be remembered. A desire to explain a recurring nightmare, leads young lawyer Gaby to a horrifying discovery which throws into question everything she thought she knew about her past, her family and even herself. She is forced to stray onto the wrong side of the law in world where the scales of justice are rigged in favour of her eminent and respectable adversaries. Along with an unlikely set of allies from across the social strata she digs into her past, knowing that it will change her future forever. Gaby's hunt for the truth will cost her everything; it may even cost her her life.
I haven't read a thriller type book in a while so I was excited for the suspense factor of this book. While I did have a bit of a difficult time getting into it, I ended up enjoying the storyline. I felt like I had to talk myself into reading for the first few chapters, but after a while, I began to have the feeling of not wanting to put it down. You know that feeling where you just HAVE to know what happens next? I felt it :)
There were a few things that I didn't love. First, there were times when a choice word would be thrown in that really didn't need to be there. It was like it was put there to make the book seem harder, more tough (if that makes sense at all). Second, it seemed like certain scenes and scenarios were kind of out of place. I don't really know how to explain it clearly.
I definitely didn't hate this book. It wasn't my favorite book ever, but it was pretty good. Next of Sin was a fairly quick read and it was enjoyable. Thanks to Author Lisa Gordon for sending it my way!
