“The Sinner” by Petra Hammesfahr is receiving the TV-tie-in treatment with a re-release of the novel.
The USA cover art, which features a somber Jessica Biel, was also used for the Penguin Publishing release.
Cora Bender killed a man on a sunny summer afternoon by the lake and in full view of her family and friends. Why? What could have caused this quiet, lovable young mother to stab a stranger in the throat, again and again, until she was pulled off his body? For the local police it was an open-and-shut case. Cora confessed; there was no shortage of witnesses. But Police Commissioner Rudolf Grovian refused to close the file and started his own maverick investigation. So begins the slow unravelling of Cora’s past, a harrowing descent into a woman’s private hell.
The book will be available starting July 25th, but you can pre-order your copy today!
USA’s “The Sinner” premieres August 2nd.
