Publisher's Summary

Lawrence Sanders's masterpiece, The First Deadly Sin, set a standard for today's novels of psychological suspense. Now, retired Captain Ed Delaney returns to a distinctly urban milieu of paranoia and impulsive violence to solve a brutal murder that shocks New York's unshockable art world.
The victim is Victor Maitland. Long-considered one of the world's greatest artists, he excelled in capturing the beauty of life on canvas. In private, he destroyed whomever he pleased: his wife, his son, his mistress, his dearest friends and family. Fittingly, Maitland has paid for his sins. But in a world where self-delusion is rewarded, where greed triumphs, and where murder is just another art, who else will pay the price?

Almost as good as the First

I liked this story and the shorter length was about right. My only complaint is that I was awaiting one final twist that never occurred. It made sense to me if "envy" is the sin referred to. As it turned out, the "perp" seemed more to suffer from avarice. Maybe the numbering system for the sins varies. All that nonsense aside, we once again had great character development and a well-conceived plot. If you enjoyed the first, you will enjoy the second. I'll keep listening.
