5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling Read!, October 21, 2014
This review is from: Next of Sin: A psychological thriller (Kindle Edition)
As her buried memories come to the surface, Gabrielle realizes she’s the sole witness to a murder and she alone is the only person with the information to take down a serial killer. As she struggles to put the pieces together, the person responsible is someone she knows well. What happens next puts Gaby and everyone close to her in grave danger.

Lisa Gordon’s Next of Sin delivers big time. This psychological thriller is fast paced with twists and turns right until the very end. It’s a thrilling read. Rather long, at 600+ pages, but well work it. Highly recommend!

The story begins with the unfortunate murder by drowning of a 12 year old girl in 1987. The drowning, unintended, starts a 14 year old on a path as a serial murderer. Only one witness, Gaby, exists in the 20 years that had passed, and she could only recall the memories she’s repressed as a result of bad dreams and therapy. The killer, who’s well connected with resources at his disposal, is motivated to snuff Gaby out.

Next of Sin is an exciting thriller sure to keep you at the edge of your seat. From the opening moments, it will draw you in and make your hair stand straight up. 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent murder mystery., October 20, 2014
This review is from: Next of Sin: A psychological thriller (Kindle Edition)
Lisa Gordon is fast becoming a favorite author of mine after reading this (and another of her books) and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a good mystery well written.

The book opens with two teenagers in holiday mood swimming in the canal on the Norfolk Broads, but the atmosphere quickly becomes sinister as ‘the boy’ , not getting his own way ends up drowning the girl he’s with to keep her quiet – the scary thing is, he’s terrified by what he’s done, but also exhilarated and enjoys the feeling of sexual arousal and power it gives him. He plans carefully how he can dispose of her body in a cold and systematic way and then carries on with his life, lying to cover up what happened. We know this will not end here. She is only the first.
The story switches to Gaby on her wedding day – it’s amazing and a happy moment with her sister and brother and her father, though tinged with memories of a family tragedy decades earlier. If you want to know more, please just read it, it’s great and what I really liked about this book is the intricacy of the plot and the level of detail and the fact that it unfolds slowly but surely – sometimes this makes it agonizing but it sure keeps you turning those pages. The story becomes Gaby’s and we see her develop through her determination to find out what happened in her life and she becomes a stronger and more self-aware individual because of it – this transformation is extremely well managed and gives a strong core to the novel. There are also some secondary characters to enjoy – Gaby’s sister Meghan, Robbie the PI, the streetwise Chantelle are my favourites. I don’t know if Lisa Gordon has any plans to develop these characters further, but I hope she does as I’d love to read more about them!
