New York Times best-selling authors Lisa Jackson, Nancy Bush, and Rosalind Noonan unite their talents in this riveting novel of family secrets, obsession, and murder
A killer's patience…
Ira Dillinger, the family's wealthy patriarch, has summoned his children home for his upcoming wedding. Eldest son, Colton, and his siblings don't approve of their father's gold-digging bride-to-be. But someone is making his displeasure felt in terrifying ways, setting fires just like in the past. Only this time, there will be no survivors.

I have read a collaborative effort before, but each author had written 2 novella's each in a series, for a total of 4 titles, so each story was still the author's own. Sinister is a collaborative effort between 3 authors, who each write their own part to the story...so one story, three parts, written by 3 different people.
I must say that at first, I was not captivated, nor was I interested in what was going on. I was almost to the point to where I was wondering if I should give up on it and try something else, but kept listening! I am certainly glad that it did, because boy did this story grow on me! It is like a fine wine, it just got better with time.
There is a large cast of character's to keep up with, but once you get into the story a little bit, that gets easier! The Dillinger bunch is quite the family! They were wickedly entertaining and thouroughly creative! I think the characters were one of the best parts of the book!
The story was also a great one! It was a creative take and one that threw me for a loop! It's not your every day mystery! I loved that it had an element of romance to it, but not nearly enough that it took over the story!
The narrator was excellent and easy to follow. She kept me entertained throughout. I look forward to hearing more from her in the future!
I was skeptical at first, but ended up really enjoying this story! I'm glad that I stuck it out, because if I hadn't, I would have missed out on a great collaborative book! Very unique...very unique!!!
