Recommends it for: yes
Book two of the Erin Solomon Mystery series ramps up the danger and darkness as Erin digs deeper into her father's past. Old murders become connected, and the trail leads to assumptions about her father's implication in the horrific murders. The story is fast paced, and unfolds in a natural manner, introducing colorful characters and twisted motives. All the while, Erin's love interests tag along, with intent to help her, creating an awkward tension in the triangle relationship between herself, ...more

I'd go 4.5 if I could, more tension, deepening and expanding the mystery around Erin's father, great stuff. Real review to follow.

It's rare for the second book in a series to be as good, let alone better, than the first book. The first book gets all the advantages. As readers we want to like the first book, so we go in with a more forgiving attitude. We forgive poorly developed character, plot flaws, and writer's quirks that would otherwise drive us to distraction because we're too busy being willfully seduced by the charms of a new story and all that it promises. Of course it's the second book that suffers for the literar ...more

This is where the story starts to hit its stride. I started reading and promptly forgot everything around me. The expanded cast of characters and the varied locations around Maine all ring true (I've lived here for over 60 years). Just enough was answered to make me feel satisfied, while the tension level and new unanswered questions had me ready to jump into the next book.

Keeps you reading.

Can't wait for number 3. What is going to happen next? She should be with Diggs! Who is the angel of death?

Action packed! Sol is still annoying but other than that still loved it.

This is the second book in the Erin Solomon series and picks up where the previous one (All the Blue Eyed Angels) left off. Kind of.

Erin is sucked into visiting a man imprisoned for raping and killing his daughter. The carrot is that he has information about her father (missing, presumed dead for 10 years). But he won't say anything until she agrees to look into his case. He claims he is innocent and has some compelling evidence.

And so it begins. Coincidentally, five other bodies have been disco

This second book in the Erin Solomon series is not for the faint-hearted. Significantly grittier than the first, All the Blue Eyed Angels, takes us into the realm of thrillers when Erin's stubbornness nearly gets her and her friend Diggs killed. Personally, I can't say that I actually enjoyed Erin and Digg's forced participation in the murderer's sick games, but it did make for riveting reading and would suit readers of thrillers and suspense.

As with the first in this series I enjoyed Ms Blood'

In the second installment of her Erin Solomon series, Jen Blood offers a riveting suspense novel. Whether one has read All the Blue Eyed Angels or is meeting Erin and company for the first time in Sins of the Father, the characters develop and take shape in satisfyingly real ways. Where other authors leave holes, Ms. Blood weaves a coherent fabric that causes the reader to feel the reasons behind the characters' behaviors. Though there were many times that I wished characters would make differen ...more
