A psychological dissection of Cora Bender, who murders a man, seemingly a stranger to her, in plain sight of her husband, child, and dozens of other witnesses on the beach. Darkly enthralling, The Sinner cuts sharp as a knife and then shines like the surface of a lake on a summer day—two defining images in the beginning chapters of Hammesfahr's novel that continue to echo throughout. A refreshing story of why rather than who. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost

Published: Picador USA - January 9th, 2018

This intriguing novel begins with a gruesome crime perpetrated by a troubled 14-year old boy, Matthew, while his 12-year old best friend Patrick (aka Tricky or Patch) watches on in secrecy and silence. Matthew is caught and serves time for the act, but Patrick swallows the guilt and shame of his inaction. Although Matthew seems to be the bad guy here, his position morphs over time until it’s not so simple anymore. There are clearly extenuating circumstances involved in the childhood crime. Patrick, however, balances on the precipice of a mid-life crisis, edging closer to a breakdown, pushed even further by the reappearance of a now-successful and wealthy Matthew. The twists and turns in this novel keep you on guessing until the very end. ~ Reviewed by Shirley Cagle
