Sinner is the third installment in the Paradise Trilogy, which begins with Showdown and then Saint. Sinner brings back Johnny Drake and reunites him with Darcy and Billy from Showdown. While this book and the series in general has some very good parts, when compared to Adam and Three, they are slow and cumbersome. If you are a Dekker fan read them because they do have some very good messages. If you are just starting with Dekker, I suggest the Circle Trilogy (Black, Red, and White) or THR33, which is absolutely AWESOME.

I love Ted Dekker's books so I find it hard to say that I hate this book, but I will definitely say that it is his worst. The characters are not likable and I hardly had the desire to read the book.
I bought this after reading the Circle Series by Ted Dekker and starting the Lost Books, also by Ted Dekker. Sinner is the worst of the Saint, Sinner and Showdown trilogy (also called the Paradise Novels).The storyline was a lot darker than Dekker's previous books. I only finished the Paradise Novels to have a better grasp of the universe Dekker created, and for only that reason, I would recommend Saint as well as Showdown and Sinner.
Also, I would suggest starting with other Dekker books such as the first 3 books of the Circle Series - Black, Red and White -, before reading the Paradise Novels as you would gain a better understanding of Dekker and his style. I would also suggest reading Green after the Paradise Novels because some of the characters from this trilogy appear in Green.
