This book was utterly amazing. I remember when my mom read it back when it first came out, I think it was 2007 or 2008. I heard how much she and her friend loved it so much and I wanted to read it. I was ten and looking back now, it was probably a good idea that my mom hadn’t let me read it. This book definitely has some mature content in it that I wouldn’t have been able to handle at a young age.

The description was the thing that first caught my eye. I absolutely love the history of Russia, I think my love of it spawned from when I first started watching the movie Anastasia as a little girl.

The Sin Collector is a dark novel that follows the story of a girl, Masha, as she follows in her father’s footsteps. She is obsessed with serial killers and has made it her thesis. Due to connections she has with a family friend she begins to work with a detective, Andrey, and stumbles upon the case he is working that seems to fit her own thesis she has been working on. Together, along with some friends, they discover the killer in a turn of events that will leave the reader stunned.
