14th Deadly Sin is the fourteenth part of the "Women's Murder Club" series. This one is mostly about Lindsay, a cop working on homicides and Yuki, a lawyer who changes from DA to sueing the city. The other women from the club are only minor characters. I've not read any of the previous parts of the series, but had no problems with finding my way into the story.
The book reads like an episode of Law and Order, CSI or any other arbitrary TV crime series, but I think it's one of these episodes you just watch to get to the next one.
The authors are not able to put up tension until the book is nearly over, just to let everything end in a cliffhanger. Why not put this scenes in the middle of the book? Because they want to sell another one.
Besides, the characters are only marionettes of the authors and their actions are not very coherent. At the end clues are coming out of nowhere and some characters are doing stupid things just to make everything a bit more exciting.
Apart from that there are also a lot of repititions, because of the irrational small chapters and when the story is picked up again there is often a short reintroduction for characters or events.
I also didn't like the amount of abbrevations that were used in the book, but that's maybe because I'm german and just didn't understand some of them.
At least the end was a bit exciting, even though it was very constructed, so 2 stars instead of 1.
