Book Review The Sanctity of Sloth

Title: The Sanctity of Sloth
Author: Greta Boris
Genre: Suspense, Mystery
Series: The Seven Deadly Sins

There’s one thing more dangerous than testifying to a crime—staying silent.
Locked in the ruins of a California Mission, Abby Travers watches helplessly as a girl dies outside her window. As she struggles between her moral obligation to come forward as a witness, and her commitment to a Medieval religious practice that requires her to retreat from the world, the situation spins out of control.
Abby’s hesitation starts a series of catastrophes. She finds herself at the center of a deadly cover up where every minute counts and indecision could be fatal. She questions all her beliefs and everyone she knows becomes suspect. To save herself and those she loves, she must break free from her self-imposed prisons of stone and fear.
The Sanctity of Sloth is a taut, psychological thriller that answers the question: What happens when a good woman does nothing? Fans of Paula Hawkins and A.J. Finn will enjoy this third book in Greta Boris’s Seven Deadly Sins Series.

"The Sanctity of Sloth" was an emotional read for me, because I recognized a lot of features of myself in Abby Travers, the protagonist of the story. In the face of tragedy, Abby is the person who tends to focus inward rather than outward, who keeps her feelings bottled up, and who finds herself isolated without even realizing it until the isolation has already happened. This connection made the book quite personal for me, but even without it, I would've enjoyed the story: suspenseful, thrilling, it it has all the elements of an excellent mystery novel.
