    Not a typical mystery

    My Thoughts **contains possible spoilers!**: I like author Nancy Allen, she’s a good storyteller whose writing style makes the subject matter easy to understand. But even though The Wages of Sin can stand on its own, I think I would have benefited from reading books 1 and 2 before this one. I had a hard time connecting with Elsie and found her to be one-dimensional and perhaps not very good at her job. She forgot to interview the single most important person in her case – the eyewitness. What kind of prosecutor puts this interview off for several days, especially when your only witness is a child? She does recover from this mistake, but it just struck me as odd. The reader knows from the beginning who is responsible for the murders and there are no big surprises during trial, so this isn’t a typical mystery. The verdict is assured, not because the prosecution is so good, but because the defense has other priorities in mind. The final chapters are exciting, and the ending is satisfying, finally bringing justice for the senseless murder of a pregnant woman and her unborn child. I enjoyed the passages written from Ivy’s perspective and was dismayed to think about how much this six year old has seen in her short life that she should never have been exposed to at any age. It would be nice to see her make an appearance in a later book as a young adult and see how her life turns out. This is one girl who can overcome a tragic childhood and become a successful adult!
