The 9th Girl

Item Details

#1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag brings back her fan-favorite Minneapolis investigators Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska in the haunting new thriller The 9th Girl . "Kovac had seen more dead bodies than he could count: Men, women, children; victims of shootings, stabbings, strangulations, beatings; fresh corpses and bodies that had been left for days in the trunks of cars in the dead of summer. But he had never seen anything quite like this . . . "   On a frigid New Year's Eve in Minneapolis a young woman's brutalized body falls from the trunk of a car into the path of oncoming traffic. Questions as to whether she was alive or dead when she hit the icy pavement result in her macabre nickname, Zombie Doe. Unidentified and unidentifiable, she is the ninth nameless female victim of the year, and homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska are charged with the task of not only finding out who Zombie Doe is, but who in her life hated her enough to destroy her. Was it personal, or could it just have been a crime of opportunity? Their greatest fear is that not only is she their ninth Jane Doe of the year, but that she may be the ninth victim of a vicious transient serial killer they have come to call Doc Holiday.   Crisscrossing America's heartland, Doc Holiday chooses his victims at random, snatching them in one city and leaving them in another, always on a holiday. If Zombie Doe is one of his, he has brought his gruesome game to a new and more terrifying level. But as Kovac and Liska begin to uncover the truth, they will find that the monsters in their ninth girl's life may have lived closer to home. And even as another young woman disappears, they have to ask the question: which is the greater evil--the devil you know or the devil you don't?   .

As an avid reader of Hoag and past writing's, this was a very tough book to read and now comments due to: although she touches upon current social issues, and concerns teens face such as bullying, gay rights, belonging, social media, pedio- phlia, divorced parents; the storyline teeters on being for teens, and teen interactions with dialogue ala Nancy Drew, while trying to sustain the adult tale of psychotic crimes and killers.

Great book! Tami explored the personal lives of her characters and we got insight that wasn't previously seen. The story was compelling and the book was hard to put down. I would definitely recommend it!

Hair raising. Cogent. Inciteful. Should be required reading for all parents of teenagers. Typical Tami Hoag. I loved it if one can love such a terrible story.
