Cover for 'Sin' Sin. A simple little word that conveys so much. It means lack of morals, the acting against that which is right and just, the suspension of good, and many other unpleasant definitions. People sin for fun, in anger, for profit, or simply on the spur of the moment without any lack of forethought or intent.

In the mind and imagination of Shaun Allan, however, Sin is a person, the hero and main character of a story by the same name as this leading man, if indeed, the term can be applied to such a one as Sin Matthews. There's a problem with Sin Matthews, though, that should be addressed early on here and it seems best to refer at this point to the third installment of The Pirates of the Carribean movies, starring Johnny Depp as one Captain Jack Sparrow. If you are one among the many who watched this particular movie you most likely were first puzzled in the beginning of it and then progressed to being bewildered, finally ending up completely confused and befuddled. At least until you reached the point in this movie where you finally realized one extremely important and salient fact - Jack Sparrow was quite insane. Once you understood that the entirety of the movie depended upon Capt. Jack's mental incapacity, then everything you had seen up to that point and indeed, everything after that as well, made perfect sense.

So is it with the main part of Shaun Allan's Sin. Much of it seems odd, if not outright perplexing, until you grasp that same fact here, that the narration of this tale is derived from the mind of Sin and Sin is "crazy as a loon". Yes. Thank you. Now it all makes perfect sense and you can continue on to read this bizarre tale of a mental patient within the confines of a mental asylum, at least until such time as Sin escapes, by means of teleportation, an ability inherent within him rooted as psychically as certain abilities within his sister, Joy, who appears to Sin variously throughgout this story, even though his sister committed suicide.

Wait. If his sister is dead, how then can she appear to Sin while he is yet alive. Is this merely another aspect of his insanity? Ahh, not exactly, but for the answers to that and many other questions certainly raised by this review you will need to opurchase a copy of Sin, by Shaun Allan. You didn't atually think this review would give away all the key points to this story, did you? Huh. You must be as crazy as Sin.
