    One thought on “The Seventh Commandment”

    1. The Seventh Commandment by Lawrene Sanders had me hooked from the first page. I started it in the morning, and finished it in the early evening. Dora Conti, who is an insurance investigator, gets sent on the tough cases. What I find ingratiating is that Dora, the heroine in this story, is not a super model type - she is an average looking woman, slightly overweight, but with a mind as sharp as nails when it came to getting down to the nitty-gritty truth of matters. Dora's boss sends her to New Y [...]

    2. Good bookAll Lawrence Sanders are.I liked this Commandment a bit more than the others.It's a good who done it.

    3. Lawrence Sanders is one of the first authors I've read. I was in high school and might have been a bit young for his genre at that time but when you're a kid and have limited book resources you can't be picky lol. I got his books from my dad's little library. I thought this one lacked the whatever it is I got from his books before lol. I remember I liked the other commandments and deadly sins books. This one, not so much. Also, I can't remember if his style in writing dialogues in this book is [...]

    4. So what is the seventh commandment? Unless you are Catholic or Lutheran, the seventh commandment is "You shall not commit adultery." If you are Catholic or Lutheran, it’s "You shall not steal", which also works in this storyline. But mainly, the title is referring to adultery. Woven in to all of this adultery (or possible adultery) is a caper involving a jewelry empire and the trading of gold. And greed, and drugs, and a little bit of conning, too. I liked the mystery part of the book, but the [...]

    5. Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.4 stars I really [...]

    6. I read "McNally's Risk" (my first Lawrence Sanders book) and enjoyed it so I thought I'd try another of his. I happened to have picked up "The Seventh Commandment" at a book sale so I thought I'd give it a try. I didn't find it as good: the female character's struggle with fidelity was not plausible and the plot in general was tepid and too contrived. Well written but a story a little too bland for me. I'm now reading one of his earlier works "The Case of Lucy Bending" and finding it more to my [...]

    7. Years ago I read several of Sanders' books and remembered them as being well-written and intriguing. Either my memory is faulty or this story is different from the others for I found it less than satisfying. There is a small group of people who set about murdering each other and an insurance investigator who considers committing adultery with a police investigator who, I thought, was not worth it if, indeed, committing adultery with anyone ever is. Bottom line a ho-hum book with few surprises or [...]

    8. This is a fairly typical mystery novel. The suspense is good, and it engrosses the reader because we want to know who killed the victim. The most annoying thing about the book, though, is that different characters continuously uses the same phrases to describe different people/situations. This seems to me to be lazy writting--the author has a pet phrase (or several in this case) and they surface from chapter to chapter with no continuity in the characters that use them.

    9. I read this book back in the 90's. I'm an author so I know how much of one's heart and soul goes into every book, which makes me reluctant to give a bad review. What I'll say about this book is it does not come close to what Lawrence Sanders is capable of. It's not a waste, it's just not his best.Dora was diligent, perceptive, faithful and smarter than most men. But these qualities were just not enough to carry the book.

    10. Interesting and fun mystery with a female insurance investigator leading the way to a complex solution of four murders. The story outlines one of the most incestuous and sociopathic group of individuals that you could find in a lifetime of looking. Not highly realistic, but keeps you awake and turning pages.

    11. I haven't read a Lawrence Sanders book in years; I believe I may have stopped after the Deadly Sins series. This story has enough crimes, perpetrators and victims to make any reader of this genre happy!

    12. This story was told 3rd person omniscient with several people and the main character Dora an investigator for an insurance company playing detective along with a dectective helping to solve four murders. A good read.

    13. Enjoyed reading The Seventh Commandment. There were some good twists and I particularly enjoyed the character of the female insurance investigator Dora Conti. I look forward to more from Lawrence Sanders.

    14. PB-B @ 1991, 3/95. Sex, murder, treachery, drugs, scams, scandal as an insurance investigator decides whether to honor the family's claim of a fabulously wealthy jeweler's stabbing death on the streets of NY. Okay.

    15. Refreshing that a book about drug abuse and murder can have as its central dynamic the relationship between a middle aged man and woman with believable sexual tension.

    16. Sanders writes really good, gritty and sexy mysterious with realistic and enjoyable characters. This is one of my favorites of his.

    17. Nothing gets by Dora Conti. Her latest case brings the tough-as-nails claims adjuster to the mean streets of New York, where Lewis Starrett, a wealthy society jeweler, has been fatally stabbed.

    18. I enjoyed reading this book even though it was predictable. Sanders' style of writing is quite descriptive.

    19. This is a good book by Lawrence Sanders. I enjoyed reading it and thought it was well written.J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"
