The Penance List


The Penance List (David Trilogy – 1) by SC Cunningham

This one comes with a warning – a steamy suspense-ridden psychological thriller – think Silence of the Lambs meets 50 Shades and hold on tight! S C Cunningham writes with a skilled mix of fueled tension, dark humour and pulsating sex scenes. Grab a glass of wine, close the bedroom door and read alone!

What happens when opposites attract – when a scorned childhood sweetheart grows into a gorgeous sexual tour de force – when a fun loving career girl, her racy girlfriends and insatiable lovers get caught in his revenge – when sex becomes a weapon, hearts become bait and straight tastes gay – when hi-flying careers, clandestine affairs and wannabe starlets are hunted by celebrity hungry press? Obsession, kidnap, murder… and he’s just getting started!

Author’s Bio

British Crime Investigator & Crime Writer, Siobhan C Cunningham creates steamy psychological thrillers and kick-ass paranormal romance with a skilled mix of fuelled tension, dark humour, and pulsating sex scenes. Having worked in the very industries she writes about, her novels offer a fresh level of sincerity and authority, rare in fiction.

An ex-model, British born of Irish roots, she married a rock musician and has worked in the exciting worlds of music, film, sports celebrity management and as a Crime Investigator for the British Police (Wanted & Absconder Unit, Major Crime Team, Intelligence Analyst, Investigations Hub).

Abducted as a child, she survived; and every night for months afterward, she prayed to God, asking for a deal. This personal journey sparked the fuse behind the intriguing and riveting fictional world she portrays in The Fallen Angel Series. Twenty years later she crossed paths with a violent serial attacker who haunted the streets of London, the seed for The David Trilogy was sown, book one is The Penance List, and has been adapted to film screenplay.

She is the proud mother to contemporary Artist Scarlett Raven and is owned by three dogs.

My Review

5 Stars

This story is about three women; Tara, Helen, and Josie. All three are closer than sisters and meet every Friday for lunch to discuss their lives. Each has their own perks and quirks with men and themselves. But there is more to their lives than what they discuss. It seems someone is obsessed with Tara and has been following the women around. It seems he is NOT happy to learn that Tara has a new boyfriend.

I have to be honest, after reading the blurb to the story I was not expecting what I got with this book. It is filled with darkness, evil, and a whole lot of sex. Tara is looking for a relationship that is going to last. Helen has body issues which leads to her lifestyle and Josie might seem to be the girl next door but she has her own secret side.

Then there is David. I couldn’t help but feel for him a little bit with I learned of his past and what drove him to this point. But knowing what he wants to do to Tara puts him up on the creep shelf and made me never want to be around him.

This is a killer story that has a great plot with well developed characters and enough sex to keep everyone happy. I was very surprised and will definitely be keeping my eyes open for the next book in this series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
