Format: Paperback
Having read nearly every horror authors' works that are available, I always enjoy going back to re-read my favorite three authors: King, Koontz, and McCammon.
Although Bethany's Sin isn't one of my favorite books by Mr. McCammon, it does provide a good evening of steady page-turning with some rather descriptive death scenes and a fast-moving plot that pays homage to an old adage that "one day women will rule over men".
Overall, I do recommend this book, but not nearly as highly as I would "Swan Song", or "Boy's Life".

These are no Wonder Women May 23 2002
By nusandman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After reading the reviews posted here, I approached Bethany's Sin with a degree of caution as it wasn't that highly rated. But having enjoyed almost every other Robert McCammon book I've read, I didn't think it could be all bad. I'm happy to say that I found this book most enjoyable. Bethany's Sin is a small Pennsylvania town where the main character Evan, his wife Kay, and his daughter Laurie move. It's soon apparent that life in this town is not as quaint and peaceful as it first appeared. Kay begins having horrific and violent nightmares after meeting the towns mayor and primary antagonist, Kathryn Drago. It's up to Evan to unravel the dark secrets of the town before its too late to save himself and his family from the horrors of the coming "killing month". Sin is fairly quick read and has an interesting slant on the legend of the Amazon women and their hostile relationship with men. Some of the descriptions of this are downright brutal. It's a good horror story with some very creepy moments. Well worth reading in my opinion.

A must read for horror fans! June 26 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A story line with a difference. Anicent evil, muderous monster women in the night and a great misunderstood hero, who could ask for more. This fast paced horror/thriller really delivers the creeps. You will not be able to put it down. Take a King break and read this book.

Decent, but all in all void of any true character Oct. 13 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Quickly identifiable by McCammon fans as one of his early works, Bethany's Sin lacks the magic and rich character that made Boy's Life and Swan Song such a thrill to read. Having read the other two prior to this, I'd been hoping for something more along those lines. It's the story of a young couple who move to what they think is a normal suburban town, only to find that there's an evil that controls the people of this town. A tired theme in horror, this book doesn't show the range and ability of Robert McCammon. The characters are dull and by the end of the book I found that I really didn't care how it was going to end.

Still worth a read May 14 2013
By Boz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This may likely be McCammon's weakest but guess what; it's still pretty decent. Robert McCammon is just that good. I would have a real problem NOT recommending any of Robert McCammon's books. I have them all and have read them all more than once. EVERYONE should read Swansong.
