Summary

A cold-blooded kidnapper has been playing a twisted game with a terrified Minnesota town. Now a respected member of the community stands accused of a startling act of evil. But when a second boy disappears, a frightened public demands to know: Have the police caught the wrong man? Is the nightmare continuing...or just beginning?

Prosecutor Ellen North believes she’s building a case against a guilty man - and that he has an accomplice in the shadows. As she prepares for the trial of her career, Ellen suddenly finds herself swept into a cruel contest of twisted wits, a dark game of life and death...with an evil mind as guilty as sin.

Loved it

A fantastic continuation of Night Sins with a surprise villain at the end. Tami Hoag doesn't disappoint.

Great listen, but something is missing...

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Definitely some suspenseful material

Have you listened to any of Jennifer VanDyck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, Solid!

Any additional comments?

Make sure you listen to Night Sins first! Great characters and great build up for the end, once the mystery is revealed there is not enough details about all that the "bad guys" did. I'm not one to rewrite an authors book but this ones ending did let me down a bit. still highly recommend it! But I feel like there is a lot left unresolved with these great characters.

Beware, this is a continuation of another book.

Would you try another book from Tami Hoag and/or Jennifer Van Dyck?

Yes, I think Tami Hoag is a good author.

If you’ve listened to books by Tami Hoag before, how does this one compare?

This one isn't as great as others.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performance was ok.

Did Guilty as Sin inspire you to do anything?

Nope

Any additional comments?

The list of characters was really long, and I had to write them down in a notebook to keep track. I don't know why so many characters were needed for the story.

Great story, just a slow start

This book was a little slow at the beginning. It gained momentum in the middle and towards the end it all started coming together. It took some getting used to as the narrator went from one topic to the next without a break or any indication that a new section was starting. So she'd be having a conversation between two characters then go on to a completely different topic, and I found myself having to go back to where the one part ended and a new one began. This made it confusing at times.

good story held my interest

I like the story and like the characters. I'm not so much interested in the sex scene and some of the language is a little bit more than what I interested in.

Nowhere near her best

Would you try another book from Tami Hoag and/or Jennifer Van Dyck?

yes

Any additional comments?

Actually, of all Tami's books , and I've read many, I liked this the least. It was downright boring.

Hard to follow

I enjoyed the story, but there wasn't much transition between scenes. I'm not sure if it was the reader or director
