1987. Nete Rosen thought she'd put her traumatic youth behind her. Her caring foster parents and loving husband helped her start again. However, when a man from her past reappears one night, Nete's new life could be shattered. But she won't be drawn back into that nightmare - she won't be a victim again...

This is the Book "The Purity of Vengeance" Renamed

This has happened to me previously. Audible brings another narrator's version of the story online, changes the title for the North American audience, and I end up buying it, unaware that I have already listened to the novel. I am a bit torqued over this because now I have to go through the hassle of returning the book. I have purchased 1257 audio books and I want to be able to rely on Audible to get this stuff right the first time.

Buy the "Purity of Vengeance," narrated by Graeme Malcom…he is a much more compelling narrator.

Same book as Purity of Vengeance, just renamed!

What disappointed you about Guilt?

I didn't buy "The Purity of Vengeance" on I bought it here, I was thrilled when I saw a new book in the Dept Q series... didn't need to read the summary, just bought it. Then as I got ready to download it, I read the the synopsis and thought it sounded awfully familiar! There should be something in Audible's database that detects a purchase like this. Yes, I was able to return it, but why waste my time?!

What other book might you compare Guilt to and why?

Um ... The Purity of Vengeance!

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Steven Pacey?


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

I think my feelings are obvious at this point!
