Publisher's 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.

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.

Must read Night Sins first

This is a continuation of Night Sins, which ended abruptly without complete resolution. The story immediately picks back up with Guilty as Sin. The characters from the first book are all present, plus new characters are added. Josh, the boy kidnapped in the first book has been returned to his home but he is broken and his family is broken. His mom, Hannah, has thrown his despicable father out of the house. The supposed kidnapper, Garrick Wright, is in jail and will go to trial. However it is obvious that either he is not the kidnapper or there has been an accomplice. This book reveals the truth and the story concludes, finally.

This book, as was the first book, is too long. It could have been told quicker; however it is a pretty good book.

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.

Stuck to the formula

This book, as was the prequel, was very formulaic. In spite of that, the writing is good. The suspense is good. These two are some of the earlier books by this writer. I have read many of her books, and the early promise of a maturing writer comes to fruition in her more recent books.

Excellent.

A terrific writer. It's one of a series. They are all very good. She is my new favorite. The narration is also very good.

good but not great

The story was good but the main character was not likeable at all. I will book series would pick up with the main characters from the previous book.

Duplicate story

This book seems to be an exact duplicate of Night Sins with a slight twist in the plot and characters the same but with different names. The characters in Night Sins appear in Guilty as Sin as almost a ghost like quality, a one dimensional person. The actual plot is great but this is the first book by Tami Hoag that I won’t recommend

I didn't bother finishing this book

I didn't even finish this book even though I usually like Tami. It had a cheap romance book vibe. The narrator was good though.
