The first title in a dark and gritty crime series.
Brought up believing that sex is the devil’s work, a killer only finds release once he has saved his victim’s souls. Abiding by his vision, he marks them as his. A gift to guide his chosen ones on the rightful path to redemption.
Detective Inspector Paolo Sterling is out to stop him, but Paolo has problems of his own. Hunting down the killer as the death toll rises, the lines soon blur between Paolo’s personal and professional lives.

While I did like the book a lot it seemed that it dealt too much with religion and the characters weren’t quite as developed as what I like.
The main character was fun to read about just had a lot problems that seemed to permeate everything they did.
There were some very warped parts of this book which make me glad that religion such as this is rare to see and glad I don’t have to deal with it.
The story was very powerful and had so much emotion packed into some of the better chapters. I do think that there was some extra scenes that maybe weren’t necessary.
