The Last Sin
by KL Murphy
on Tour March 13 – April 14, 2017
Detective Mike Cancini has seen some dark days, but his skills are put to the test when a priest is discovered, brutally murdered in a run-down church in Washington, D.C. The man who discovered the body is none other than Cancini’s longtime friend and confidant, Father Joe Rossi. The murdered priest, Father Matthew Holland, was adored by the congregation, and it seems clear that this was a crime of opportunity in a deteriorating neighborhood.
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.
This was the 3rd book in the Detective Cancini Mysteries but read easily as a stand alone.
The very handsome Father Matthew Holland has returned home. As a child he had a very dysfunctional life living with, and losing his drug addicted mother. He fled the the foster care system and had to do what he needed to for survival. But he turned his life around and returned to the neighborhood parish in hopes of helping women, like his mother, and the children who needed a successful path to the future.
Then it all ended. He was found dead with a gunshot wound to his face. Did his past sins catch up with him? Or was it his most recent sin where the end justifies the means? And was it really a sin? And now his mentor, Father Joe is missing.
This book grabbed and pulled me in from the first few pages to the shocking end. I had trouble putting this book down.
I have found a new series that I must read! Compelling! I highly recommend!
