THE SINNERS CLUB
Though occasionally uneven, Pearce’s series starter is a shocking, sultry journey into a world of secrets and dark desires. Longtime fans will recognize the hero, but his transformation over the course of this complex investigation is one all readers will savor. The gothic feel of the story is instantly engaging, and the secrets of each character’s past keep the plot taut with suspense. However, the numerous sexual encounters between the three main characters lack some of that same tension and emotional impact. Ultimately, this is a promising start to an intense and titillating series.
