Amanda Stevens, why are you so good at hooking me?
Now, I have already covered that this is full of spoilers. So, let us continue.
Kendrick. I knew you didn’t have a chance because, clearly, Amelia is not finished with Devlin, but I am honestly so very surprised that Amelia fell for this. He had a skull on his hand, for pity’s sake.

p. 263, The Sinner, Amanda Stevens (French to English translation)
Isn’t that BEAUTIFUL? Honestly, I might copy that over in French onto a piece of paper and turn it into some gorgeous lettering. That, literally that statement, made me want to meet someone who speaks French and possibly be okay with them whispering sweet nothings into my ear.

But he didn’t.
Is Devlin happy now, I wonder?
