Publisher's summary

Who is the sinner and who is the saint?

Jamie Brooke is working as a private investigator in the London Borough of Southwark when the body of a priest is found in the ruins of Winchester Palace, his tattooed arms flayed, his mouth stuffed with feathers.

Jamie begins the hunt for the skin collector with the help of museum researcher, Blake Daniel, who is haunted by visions of a terrifying past.

As violence erupts, leaving a trail of bodies in its wake, Jamie and Blake must find the murderer before those they love are taken down in the chaos.

Steeped in spirit, sensuality, and studies

What did you love best about Deviance?

While I apologize for the above alliteration (ha, I did it again!) - I hold my words to be true - J.F. Penn's dedication to detail in history, sex without sleaze, and the mysteries of this world and others make it a very enticing story. The audio book is a nice companion to the book, if you want to switch between the two, and read in the very tony voice of Ms. Ashford. Third in the series, this is the end of the London Psychic trilogy (Desecration #1, Delirium #2) - or, at least for now, the reader/listener hopes there are more adventures to be had by the now PI Jamie Brooke and psychic researcher Blake Daniel. What I really connected to was the very creativity of the story - existing things woven into old and existing things in a new way.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

This is where I don't want to spill spoilers - but suffice it to say, it is well worth it!

What does Rosalind Ashford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The emotion, the very "Britishness" of her voice describing London, etc. is entirely apropos and just adds to the theatricality of the story, which helps me to see it my mind as a movie when listening.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I quite enjoy the tag line of the book: Who is the sinner, and who is the saint?"

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly recommend this author and her books to anyone that seeks a thrilling read (this is NOT Sci/Fi, even though there are mystical elements in it).
