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.

Definitely some suspenseful material
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.
Awful story, hard to follow characters. Borring
O.K. I guess
not that I could see
May be i just don't like Tami Hoag's style.
Yes, I think Tami Hoag is a good author.
This one isn't as great as others.
The performance was ok.
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.
Very complicated plot but very well thought out and portrayed. Good character building and loved the complexity of the players.
I am addicted to talking books, but only mystery/thrillers or some particular authors like Terry Pratchett.
This is not a sequel to Night Sins so much as the second part of the story, which was unfinished in the first. Both books are very long and I was surprised by how gripping they were all the way through. Really good.
Jennifer Van Dyck does a superb job narrating both novels. Each character has a distinct voice and I never got them confused. I especially liked her portrayal of the children.
About the story. Well, I felt like the author was told to write two books of more almost 600 pages each (18+ hours each as an audiobook) and end the first one in a cliffhanger to be completed in volume two. Consequently, there is so much filler that I felt like I was treading water waiting for the plot to progress, when she could have filled out the characters and solidified the clues. It took me a great effort and gritting of teeth to finish this audiobook. The storyline of both books should have been condensed into one. I don't like the idea of leaving a storyline to be completed in a second book, but if they had to do it then each book should have been shortened by half. +/-19 hours each is ridiculous.
It started with "Night Sins" and was breathtaking from the first paragraph!!!
I eagerly will search for the next "game"!
