A Journal Of Sin
A Journal Of Sin by Darryl Donaghue

What its about

A village, isolated by a severe storm, and a young officer, alone and out of her depth. A troubled priest is brutally murdered, leaving behind a journal of the resident’s confessional secrets; secrets certain people would prefer he took to the grave.

As word spreads, the pressure rises as the eyes of the town watch her every move. With no forensic team, no support and a savage killer hiding in a turbulent town, is PC Sarah Gladstone up to the task?

I was lucky when I found this price dropped down to free on Amazon. I grabbed it just from looking at the cover. I’ve been on a horror kick lately and this the cover to A Journal Of Sin snagged my attention right away.

We start with Sarah being stuck at her mom’s house because of a horrible story that flooded the entire town (area). The storm knocked out all forms of communication and electricity. Someone alerted Sarah to the fact that a priest was missing and seeing as she was the only cop available, no matter how much of a rookie she was, she was in charge of finding him.

This was a great who done it. I read it through in one sitting, wanting to know besides Sarah, who could be trusted and who couldn’t be? I had an inkling of who did do this but I wasn’t 100% sure because this was the kind of story where you can not be positive that a character is who they say they are. There’s these words spoken that leave you wondering exactly what their intentions are. Do they really want to help? Are they angry because of this? Did this lead them to murder the priest? There’s 3 characters besides the one who actually committed the crime that I was bouncing back and forth with from their point of entry into the story. I also was heart broken over one of the characters, the more that came out, the more that was insinuated, the more I wanted to see someone save her.

Excellent read! I will definitely be looking for more books by Darryl and be following the adventures of PC Sarah Gladstone.
