Book Review: The Sacred Sin

Updated on November 19, 2013

"Evil knows evil."


Jude Foster is an intense and angry detective, hell-bent on capturing a murderer. Someone is killing people in L.A. - violently, and without using any weapon other than pure evil. Luckily, Jude knows the suspect. Unluckily, it is his former partner Morgan Cross, who has become something dark and evil that feeds on people's fears and weaknesses.

The past drives these characters. When Jude's comes home to haunt him, he is forced to face torturous inner demons, thanks to Cross. Through the use of flashbacks and memories, suspense is built and revealing of incredible pain and suffering of both the detective and the fugitive.

With each successive kill, the demonic Cross has become stronger, and Jude must summon everything within him that is still good and whole to live and to conquer.

"Man cannot deny his true nature."


Estevan Vega has positioned his protagonist to face himself and see his own dark side, providing an enormous conflict within Jude. By making his characters human with real, albeit sad, back stories, Vega has us wondering if we should be checking our own shadows for demons.

The Sacred Sin is a second novel by a prolific eighteen year old with a bright future. Watch this author. As he gains experience, he will undoubtedly be an awesome best selling writer. His story line is good, and with a proofreader to perfect the flow of his words, his next novel will be even better.

      You're very welcome. The first few chapter I found to be a little rough, but the farther he got into it, the smoother he went. Something age and experience will fix. The plot is very interesting tho.
