Book Description

“If you like Mary Higgins Clark, you’ll love Wendy Corsi Staub.”
—Lisa Jackson

“Wendy Corsi Staub is a master storyteller!”
—Brenda Novak

“Once Staub’s brilliant characterizations and top-notch narrative skills grab hold, they don’t let go.”
Publishers Weekly

Superstar thriller writer Lee Child calls the novels of Wendy Corsi Staub, “Solid gold suspense,” and readers who dig into Hell to Pay will discover they’ve hit the mother lode. The third book in Staub’s exceptional suspense trilogy—which she began with the Mary Higgins Clark Award-nominated Live to Tell, and continued with Scared to Death, winner of the Westchester Library Associations Washington Irving Book Award—Hell to Pay revisits two married survivors of an unspeakable childhood nightmare fifteen years later, whose lives are shattered once again by dark secrets and a terrible vengeance unleashed by an unexpected Act of God. Devoted Lisa Jackson and Lisa Gardner fans who have yet to experience the thrilling suspense fiction of Wendy Corsi Staub…now is the time!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Horrible, But I Just Didn't Care How It Ended June 25 2012
By WestieLover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I usually love Wendy Corsi Staub, but about 1/3 of the way through this book I realized that I simply didn't care what happened to the characters. I tried to continue to plod through it (because I had paid for it), and then I quit (reading is supposed to be for enjoyment, right?). The story moves very slowly, and the character development is too shallow to make up for the slow pace. I have pre-ordered Staub's next book, and I'm hoping for better results.

1.0 out of 5 stars VERY DISAPPOINTING, VERY CONFUSING Nov. 23 2011
By Gregory D. Holderbach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have been a fan of Wendi Corsi Staub and I have enjoyed her novels over the years, but her last book is a huge disappointment. The first 30 pages are crammed with so many characters and their (over the top) back-stories it made my head spin and left me very confused, going back and forth to try to figure out who was who and who did what. I eventually gave up after reading 70 pages. I'll definitely check out the reviews for her next book before buying it. I hope she hasn't lost her touch for good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Oct. 24 2011
By A Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was really disappointed in this conclusion to the trilogy. I felt the murderder's identity was obvious right from the start, which made the book lose all its suspense. And while I agree with other reviewers that too much time was spent giving back story on some of the characters, I felt there were others where not enough back story was given, which not only made the book confusing at points, but also made you wonder why certain key details were happening.

I usually love this author, but wasn't impressed with this trilogy at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Really Hard To Get Through Oct. 14 2011
By Joanne Schmidt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Normally I like this author's books, but I had such a hard time trying to remember the characters from "that former book," and just not able to do it. I don't know if it's been too long since the original book that laid the foundation or what, but other than the names and a few other things, it was like I was reading a different book. I really struggled through this whole book until the ending which was so exciting, I was glad I hung on. Save your money - Don't be disappointed.
