Book 3 of the Luis Chavez series by Mark Wheaton, Wages of Sin, finds Father Luis Chavez still dwelling on the murder of his brother, Nicholas, some years ago; something he knows he’ll never get over. However, when Michael Story, Chief Deputy District Attorney finds a link between a new murder and Luis’ brother’s death, he begins to have some hope and try to solve the murder. Unfortunately, there are more murders and Chavez finds himself overwhelmed with all of the links to his brother. His investigation may well be the death of him.

Wheaton is an excellent storyteller and his writing is good and easy to follow. Chavez is a good protagonist and Wheaton is a well-developed character who is believable. The sub-characters are also well-developed, which makes reading enjoyable and makes it seem like these are real people.

This novel has a good plot and plenty of surprising scenarios that make the story flow. Readers will be on the edges of their seats, as the suspense builds throughout the novel. The dénouement is a surprise. This novel is worth reading. Wheaton’s previous novels in this series are also worth reading.
