Publisher's Summary

It is three days before Christmas, and two young girls have disappeared from the local academy. This hasn't happened for 15 years, since Rouge Kendall's twin sister was murdered. The killer was found, but now Rouge, 25 and a policeman, is forced to wonder: was he really the one? Also wondering is a former classmate named Ali Cray, a forensic psychologist with scars of her own. The pattern is the same, she says: a child called out to meet a friend. The friend is the bait, the Judas child, and is quickly killed. But the primary victim lives longer. . .until Christmas day. Rouge doesn't want to hear this. He's spent the last 15 years trying to avoid the memories. A little girl has haunted his dreams all these years - and he has three days to finally put her to rest.
Filled with rich prose, resonant characters, and knife-edged suspense that have won so many fans, Judas Child is Carol O'Connell's most powerful novel yet.

Good book, bad narrator..

I had a hard time getting through this book only because of the narrator, Erika Leigh. She should read children's books. She doesn't have the voice for this kind of book.

I really like Carol O'Connell's books and have listened to many of them and alway gave a four star rating. Not this time. The narrator was terrible in my opinion

Absurd procedural plot hole is infuriating

Most of this book was enjoyable and I was certainly interested. However, much of the plot and character activity focuses around the fact that a psychiatrist will not reveal the name of his patient who is the likely suspect. This is portrayed as some sort of noble code of medicine when in fact it is the opposite. Patient doctor confidentiality is protected EXCEPT when it is suspected that the patient will do harm to themselves or others and then it is actually illegal not to report it. So much dialogue and effort was put into trying to convince this doctor to do what he is legally required to that it was infuriating. This was a glaring oversight.
