I read both Night Sins and Guilty as Sin in the order they were written. Ms. Hoag spins an intricate web of mystery with twists and turns littering the path to the truth about who kidnapped a little boy in a Minnesota town. She also injects into the storyline romance fraught with secrets and obstacles for the main characters. Unfortunately Ms. Hoag does not answer all the questions that the plot poses. While the identity of the perpetrator of the crime is revealed, the books never delve into the whys and the hows. Instead, the reasons for masterminding a kidnapping and performing mind control on a child are summarized in a few vague pages. Since Ms. Hoag spent almost 1200 pages leading up the resolution she could have written a few more which explained the motives of the kidnappers.

I really enjoyed this book but I agree that some expansion could have been done regarding the "kidnappers" and what led them to their crime. My main complaint is that I had picked up both Guilty as Sin and Night Sins and had no idea Guilty as Sin was the sequel and read it first. There was no indication of that anywhere in the book. Should have visited amazon.com first!

In Guilty as Sin the story centers on the child abduction that began in Night Sins. The story surrounds the perpetrator of the abduction of eight-year-old Josh Kirkwood. Ellen North, County Prosecutor and Mitch Holt, Police Chief for Deer Lake, Minnesota investigate. Ellen North must build a case against a suspect most people don't believe to be guilty. This book is as dynamic and riveting as the first and kept me enthralled as the mystery was first built into a more devious story and then slowly unraveled to a climatic end. A great story spread across these two novels. Highly recommended.

When I read "Night Sins" it ended practically in the middle of a thought - very obviously (thank goodness) a sequel was planned. "Guilty" continues the story developed in the first book and does a good job of following through on the mystery. While I liked the first book better (personal preference, not quality of writing) "Guilty" keeps the suspense going and wraps up the storyline with a totally unexpected ending.
Don't try reading this book on it's own - you'd be missing the intensity & mystery developed in the first book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Guilty as Sin is the conclusion to Tami Hoag's Night Sins but could also be considered a stand-alone type novel.

In Night Sins we learn about the kidnapping of Josh Kirkwood a nine-year-old boy living in a small town in Minnesota. The horrible crime rocks the peaceful feeling and security of those that live there, but none so much as the parents of this child. At the end of Night Sins a villain is captured - Dr. Garrett Wright, a local college professor, and neighbor and friend to the Kirkwoods.

Guilty as Sin picks up right where Night Sins leaves off. However, instead of continuing the focus on the Kirkwood family and the law enforcement officers trying to find the child, Guilty as Sin focuses on Ellen North, an Assistant County Prosecutor who is trying to put Dr. Garrett Wright away for this heinous crime.

Along the way, we learn that Dr. Wright isn't working alone and has an accomplice, but the identity of that second villain is lost in a slew of subplots and support characters.

Tami Hoag floods the reader with a cast of support characters to the point of confusion:

Jay Butler Brooks - author of true crime novels, comes to Minnesota to research the kidnapping and trial for a new book.

Dennis Enberg - the defense attorney, originally representing Wright who commits suicide after he's removed from the case - or was it suicide?

Hannah Garrison - mother to Josh Kirkwood, ER doctor, and all around nice person who embodies the perfect mother/wife/career woman.

Paul Kirkwood - father to Josh Kirkwood, husband to Hannah, who is so self absorbed that he can't feel for anyone but himself.

Tom McCoy - local Catholic priest who starts to doubt his faith and wonders at his calling.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Guilty As Sin" is the sequel to "Night Sins". It still takes place in Deer Lake, Minnesota, but the female protagonist has changed. Instead of Agent Megan O'Malley leading the investigation into the abduction of 8-year-old Josh Kirkwood, it's now up to 35-year-old Ellen North, the prosecuting attorney, to prove Dr. Garrett Wright guilty of kidnapping. Because Dr. Wright is such an influential member of the community, Ellen is faced with some fierce opposition from his colleagues and supporters (like the Space Cowboys), but especially from Wright's defense attorney, Anthony Costello (Ellen's old-time flame who has a malicious way of practicing law).
Now although Josh has mysteriously been returned to his family without being physically harmed (emotionally and psychologically he's a mess), the young boy refuses to speak for fear of all the evil things the Taker could do to him and his family. Without Josh's assistance, Dr. Wright just might walk free. However, he might just be proved innocent anyways when--while still in custody--another 8-year-old boy is kidnapped from a neighboring town. Ellen begins to speculate that Dr. Wright might have an accomplice who is trying to divert attention from Wright by committing various crimes he obviously couldn't have committed. But when Ellen goes after Wright's closest friends, she gains a high-rising number of enemies, all of whom could be suspects in the kidnappings and would like nothing more than to stop Ellen's investigation for good.
"Guilty As Sin" began with a strangely out-of-place prologue that left me a little baffled. It wasn't until I was nearing the end of the book that I realized it had been taken from an attack scene between the kidnapper and Ellen.
