The Sacred Sin by Estevan Vega
Jude Foster is a homicide detective in Los Angeles who is about to have a mental breakdown. About one year ago, Jude was left to die by his once close friend and partner, Morgan Cross. Cross had betrayed him, and now Jude is one the verge of a menta crash. He is seeing a pshychiatrist whom he strongly dislikes so that he can be reinstated into the department and all the while, everything around him is moving just too quickly. His brother, the only family he has left, is in need of help but does not want it, and Jude tries his best to give it to him.
A body is found in West Hollywood, and Jude realizes that this is just the first of many bad things to come. There are markings on the body which are actually a trail all leading to a new evil. Jude has to uncover the sacred sin of a killer who murders his victims without even touching them, only by stealing their souls. And time goes by all the while, given Jude only a week to find “the darkness that lies within all men.”
This was a very good book. The way it was written, I just couldn’t put it down.This book has so many different emotions in it that you can’t see what the author, Estevan Vega, will make you feel next. Overall, it was a really great book and a definite page-turner.
This book may be scary for younger children because it deals with a murderer and his victims.
