Publisher's Summary

A not guilty verdict. A kidnapping. A midnight trial. Six sitting in judgment and one empty chair. Revenge - is it sweet or just a bitter seed? 

Coach Terrence Jackson is the man who has divided the town of Marston. There are those who believe in the coach and his innocence, and then there are the victims who despise him, his smile, and his crime. He has a dark past - a previous life no one knew about until the not guilty verdict. Only one victim, Rose Canter, has the courage to ask for justice. The others quietly watch as her justice slips away with the verdict. He's getting away with rape. He goes back to his life wearing his signature smile, and Rose is left picking up the pieces of hers. She doesn't know that she is not the only victim who has lost the fight to the coach

Coach Jackson's signature smile is an integral accessory of his wardrobe. In fact, he doesn't leave home without it. He has one son named Jonas, a dead wife, and a young, blonde bombshell by his side. He has money and status which he earned on the football field. Now he's giving back to the community by helping high school students afford a college education.

One thing he does not have is the contentment of his victims. They want revenge and the setup for his demise begins. A trial takes place at midnight with a jury made up of six victims and one empty chair. The defendant is Coach Terrence Jackson.

There's more than one way to catch a criminal.

Kept me listening

I did not know what to expect from this audiobook when I started it. After reading the reviews on the ebook I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed. There came a point where I was not able to stop listening. I wanted to know what was going to happen next. This was a good story. I think the narrator did a good job reading the book. I was able to visualize the entire story.

Thriller full of unexpected twists and turns......

Guilty is a very exciting and suspenseful novel about how an evil rapist is finally brought to justice. The book starts with the rapist, a former professional football player now working as a high school football coach, being found not guilty of the rape of a cheerleader at his school. The author proceeds to introduce several characters and story lines that she seamlessly winds together to finally get justice/vengeance for the victims of the coach. Along the way, the reader gets insight into the lives of several of the small town characters and a true sense of the overall goodness of these town folks. With a great use of foreshadowing, the author adds just the right level of creepiness that keeps you listening in anticipation but doesn't get too scary or graphic in violence.

Beisner's narration was perfect for this story. He has a deep, resonant voice that added to the overall suspense and intrigue of the story. My only complaint was that he occasionally had long pauses in strange places, then over-emphasized the next phrase. Overall, his performance was great and added to my enjoyment of the listen.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Guilty Indeed!

I began listening while cleaning the house, but I kept finding myself staring off imagining the scenes of the book. The author does an amazing job of keeping you on your toes so you can't guess what (or should I say who) is coming next. Not everyone is who you think they are, but you can be sure that someone is guilty. I enjoyed the narrators portrayal of each character and the many emotions they feel. Well worth the read.

I LIVE

This heart wrenching story of a young lady who was raped by her boyfriend's father, who not only raped her and impregnated her, but also had raped many other young women/girls, but Rose Canter was the only one brave enough to come forward and tried to get justice through the court system. When the perpetrator is found not guilty, due to him being a successful coach of the local high school football team, other women begin to tell their stories until justice will be served.

This book was very intriguing and am looking forward to more of this series.

The narrator had a great speaking voice and feel that once he has proper equipment, where the sound quality is not as bad, he will be fantastic at narrating novels.

Bad Narration

I haven't even finished this book but I can't get in to the story because of the narrator. He is horrible. This book should have been narrated by a woman or have two narrators a woman and a different man. I think this would be a good story but I don't know because of the narration the voice and emotions sound so fake.

Injustice

Coach Terrence Jackson, the very well-liked and respected coach at a high school was found not guilty of raping Rose, a student at the school. She is also the girlfriend of his son Jason. Rose and her family are crushed by the injustice which has taken place. The detectives on the case are also infuriated and dig deeper. An unexpected twist evolves when a victim support counselor enters the picture. The plot, characters and subject matter were well developed. The narration was well done and I would recommend this book to all. I look forward to other books by this author. I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Loved it!

I enjoyed this audiobook. The suspense and cliffhangers at the end of each chapter kept me hooked. Once I started listening I had to finish. The narrator did a good job making the characters seem lifelike.

I hate writing bad reviews

I don't know why this book is getting such great reviews. It was a decent listen but there were so many things wrong with the story and the narration that it does not rise to the level of great. I can't even give it a good review. (Sorry!)

The narration. The voice was pleasant enough but there was not enough disparity to EVER know who was talking! EVER. This book was not narrated, it was read. There were some seriously emotional elements to the listen but they were delivered no more or no less than if the narrator was reading the morning news. There were also way too many mispronunciations. ("pie-thee" instead of "pith-ee".) Cringe.

The story. The opening sequence set up the story rather nicely. We know that a foul man just got away with raping a 17-year-old girl. The opening paragraphs were why I kept reading. The bad guy needed to get got and I wanted to see how that happened. Unfortunately, the author didn't exactly write this with proper police procedure in mind. I constantly shook my head. I won't give too much away but at the point that the car (which was supposedly involved in a kidnapping) showed up back at the house (on the same day) without explanation or reason, I was done.

I can't see how or why this is the first book in a series but I'm one and done.

Book 1


The story starts out slow but it got very interesting with a plot twist that I didn't see coming. The author has a smooth layering effect so you gets to know the characters and they will either love or hate them.
