Sinister Jana Deleon

Jana Deleon

New York Times best selling author Jana DeLeon was raised in southwest Louisiana among the bayous and gators. Her hometown is Carlyss, but you probably won't find it on a map. Her family owned a camp just off the Gulf of Mexico that you could only get there by boat. Growing up, Jana read many books, and had a designated reading spot on her families rope hammock which had stretched out over the water. Jana had spent many hours reading countless books on her rope hammock as a kid.

Sinister, was Published January 18th 2016 by Jana DeLeon. The book tells an eery story about how one day street kids start to randomly disappear, but when people look into it, they wonder whether or not they existed in the first place. The book Sinister is the part two, to the Shaye Archer series, which also include malevolent, and Diabolical. All of Jana Deleon's books are based around the topic of crime and investigation considering that Shaye Archer is an investigator.

One of the main characters, Hustle, is certain that something bad has happened to his friend Jinx, and the only person he can turn to for help is private investigator Shaye Archer. Since from the polices point of view it looks though as nobody has disappeared or gone missing, Hustle has to resort to private investigator Shaye Archer. Shaye Archer has experienced some crazy things in her life time so she's a strong believer that everybody has some sort of point and that theres some sort of truth behind every story.

Shaye Archer, the main character in the book series, was found by police in an alley, beaten and abused and with no memory of the previous fifteen years, not even her name. Ruffly 9 years later she was a licensed private investigator. Shaye had only on goal in mind, to get answers for her clients when there aren’t supposed to be any. Some people think that Shaye wanted this job so she could find out answers for herself, others think its just because she could connect and understand her clients better due to her history.

Jana Deleon uses imagery more than any other writing technique in her books. I believe she does this in order to grab the readers attention and to give them a clear understanding of whats really going on in the book, so that they don't walk away with unanswered questions. In the book sinister, she grabs the readers attention by giving them a sense of false hope on the suspenseful journey in order to figure what was really going on.

I really enjoyed reading the part two, to the Shaye Archer series because its that type of book were you don't wanna put it down, all you wanna do it read to the next chapter to figure out what happened in the previous one. The book engages the reader by painting an image in the readers head in order to make them feel though as if they are really there in the book with the characters.

The theme of the book is suspense. Throughout the book there is constant suspense to know what happens next. Jana Deleon did a good job in incorporating this theme into her book because when theres suspense, the readers bound to know happens next. The main question that i had wondered while reading this book, was whether or not Hustle was ever gonna see his friend Jinx again, but you'll have to read the book to find out.
