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.

    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.

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

    "Not the best"

    I generally like Tami Hoag's books. But this one just felt off. I really didn't relate to the characters, particularly the main protagonist. I was kinda rooting for her to lose. Plus, the book felt like it dragged and was too long. There was a lot of stuff that didn't have that much to do with the plot, i.e., the kidnapping. Interesting twist ending though.

    "A bit Hard to Follow & Too Long"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. I was disappointed in this one. This must be an early Tami Hoag. I found it hard to follow and considerably too long. I also wasn't thrilled with Ellen North, the main character. She is so standoffish and fearful of letting her defenses down that she has virtually no allies.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tami Hoag? Why or why not?

    Oh, yes. LOVE several of the other (later) ones I've read.


    What aspect of Jennifer Van Dyck’s performance would you have changed?

    I sometimes found myself straining to catch what she said. I'd suggest reading a LITTLE more slowly. Perhaps a little more enunciation.


    Did Guilty as Sin inspire you to do anything?

    Like what?!


    Any additional comments?

    The best thing about the book was the revelation of who was the killer. I usually focus on a suspect fairly early on. This book kept me guessing a bit longer and was very satisfying in that respect. I also liked Jay Butler and found him really appealing. Have trouble seeing why he pursued main character Ellen, though. According to the book, she undid his cynicism but she's such a closed person I'd say he did that on his own. On the minus side, I found the book unnecessarily complicated and convoluted. After the grand solution I still didn't know WHY all the bad acts were committed aside from the fact that one perpetrator is a psycho and the other was an arrogant psycho-sadist??? WHY were particular people chosen as victims? Even psychos have some logic, don't they??? And there were many unnecessary side issues: For example, what was the point of discussing the priest & Hannah's mutual attraction that is not acted on? What was the point of the whole section about Megan O'Malley's being attacked and permanently injured? More germaine: Why didn't the police and D.A. push for information from Josh Kirkwood when another child has been kidnapped & his info could be vital and why didn't his mother Hannah INSIST that he tell what he knows for the sake of another mother & child?! I really found Ellen's assistant's attitude problematic -- if she worked anywhere I worked, she would be OUT OF A JOB. I found Ellen's tolerance of Phoebe's disrespect and poor performance very aggravating. Conculsion: I read that the child abduction began with earlier book Night Sins. Maybe that's my problem - I didn't read that.
