Description

Halle Jacobs has just landed her dream job as an investigative reporter for an up-and-coming TV production company. She is immediately thrust into an investigation about an unusually high number of childhood cancer cases on an East London housing estate.

Ably assisted by her researcher Todd, she is confronted by a community that, rather than pulling together under these distressing circumstances, is torn apart by intolerance and racism.

Halle progresses the investigation, identifying two family firms that were involved in the construction of the housing estate back in the 80s. Both firms are run by strong patriarchal figureheads. As she delves deeper into the two families, Halle comes across a mother in prison for murder, a set of ruthless business men, a suspicious money trail and a daughter determined to find out what is going on between the two firms.

Will Halle crack this case and expose The Sins of the Father?

This was a great book. I loved every paragraph, every sentence and every word of this masterpiece! I read it in 12 hours, which is a lot for me to do! It had everything and more laid out in the novel! I sure hope he writes more! I am totally hooked!

I thought this book had such an interesting premise and so I was keen to read and review it and I loved it. It was dark, tense and atmospheric with a gripping story that kept me hooked until the end. Twisty and unpredictablr and very hard to put down.

This was a book that I devoured in the span of a day because I couldn't put it down. The plot twists were incredible and I loved the story/character development. It's definitely a page-turner and the antagonists are so unlikeable and thoroughly obnoxious (very well-written!) that you really want to keep reading in hopes they get their just dues. Now it's up to you to read it and see what happens...
