The big news story in Chicago is the murder trial of Johnny Santoro, a dock worker whose girlfriend has been killed. Most Chicagoans are betting on a quick guilty verdict, but Ellie Foreman has doubts about his complicity - Santoro is strangely familiar to her. Checking back to the outtakes of a video project in progress while the murder took place, Ellie finds evidence that could save Santoro from a lifetime behind bars. It seems the perfect alibi, but the tape is compromised by radio interference and Santoro goes to jail. Almost immediately, Ellie's world begins to shift: a suspicious vehicle follows her, the Chicago mob shows up, and the FBI wants to question her. She doesn't have answers, but she has questions of her own about the radio transmissions. Everything indicates someone wants something from her, something bigger than the Santoro case. If only she could figure out what it is.... A Picture of Guilt follows Ellie's debut in An Eye for Murder.

“A smart and exciting story… deserves extra attention…Hellmann knows what people are willing to die for and that knowledge makes her work shine.” (Chicago Tribune)
"This sequel to An Eye For Murder has it all – action, excitement, increasing tension – with the usual family complications... Recommended." (Library Journal)
“An exciting new adventure… better written than the first… will keep you up late at night… highly recommended!” (Mystery Times)
I LOVE books. And dogs & quilting & beading & volunteering.
I'm living the Libby Hellmann books about video maker Ellie Foreman and her in ability to keep out of police business!
The plot rambles some and there were loose strings left that bothered me, however the story is an exciting one with tense times.
I don't want to get into the story because it would be a spoiler - leave it to say that the narration by Beth Richmond was great, the story line exciting and were I reading it it would be a real page turner..as it was, I did listen all day and forgot about TV during the evening to finish it up.
I'm especially enjoying Ellies dad...he's a character, and her teen age daughter. Ellie has the ability to get involved in the most bazaar of situations.
Well worth your credit for the listen. I hope the series continues to be as exciting and well done.
