Tiffany Reisz's USA Today bestselling Original Sinners series returns with the long-awaited sequel to The Queen.
When a New Orleans parish priest is found dead of an apparent suicide, the police see no reason to investigate. Private detective Cyrus Tremont knows a cover-up when he sees it, however. A former cop, he's seen it all...or so he thought.
Clues point him in the direction of Nora Sutherlin, an erotic romance writer who moonlights as a dominatrix. Together, they form an unlikely bond built on their shared need for justice.
As Cyrus is drawn deeper into Nora's underground world of pleasure and pain, what lines will he cross to discover the truth about the priest? And what will he and Nora do with the truth once they find it?
The Priest is the beginning of a new era for Reisz's Original Sinners series, and the perfect jumping-on point for new readers.
Tiffany Reisz’s latest addition to her Original Sinners Series is a mystery. Although each of the books has an element of mystery with questions that need to be answered, The Priest is a real mystery with an authentic private investigator looking for the answers and guess who gets to be PI Cyrus Tremont’s assistant? Right the first time! None other than our favorite Sinner-in-Chief, Nora Sutherland!
“You’re a dominatrix dating a priest and a French farmer. You got a dog that worships you on command. You got a witch stalking you. You have your own dungeon on the third floor of a bank building. Lady, I hate to tell you this . . . but you are one of the kooks.”
“That would hurt,” Nora said as she shook off her black leather jacket, “except it’s true.”
Our mystery begins with a question. What is a disgraced Søren going to do with the rest of his life? Place him in the perfect location for a mystery, the mysterious city of New Orleans. Add the mysterious death of a beloved priest and a mysterious “witchy woman” — yes, I’m channeling The Eagles. Stir the cauldron carefully because the explosive brew is a worthy addition to a series that has captured the imaginations of readers of every genre. You don’t have to love kink and erotica, you don’t have to be a believer or a non-believer, you don’t even have to be good at solving mysteries to appreciate the author’s unique combination of witty banter and heart-pounding drama or her ability to put you in touch with feelings you didn’t know you had. How can you love a sadist? Or a dominatrix? Or a man who has committed acts that shock the Devil himself?
So back to the mysteries. . . . there is evidence to be gathered and what it reveals will be more shocking than the act that precipitated the investigation. There is a decision to be made that will affect the lives of each of the sinners, and there is a small, black cat to be named. No spoilers as to which item remains a mystery at the end of the book. As always with this ménage, there are questions raised that are answered and there are questions asked that are unanswered. Although The Priest isn’t really a standalone, there is enough detail given that you may certainly begin your love affair with these characters with this book, but you will be your own sadist and/or masochist if you don’t start with the first book in the series, The Siren. Welcome back, family, and 5 Stars to our reunion!!
Many thanks to the 8th Circle Press and Andrew Shaffer for the opportunity to read and review.
