Book Description

June 18 2013
#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?

Product Description


Praise for THE 9TH GIRL

“Hoag’s prose is martial-arts quick and precise, her humor is high-voltage, and her insights into the misery of high school, the toxicity of divorce, and the extreme psychosis of a serial killer are knowing and thought-provoking…one of her very best.” - Booklist

"The 9th cannily plotted and peppered with some of the sharpest dialogue in the business." - Entertainment Weekly 

"Outstanding! Tami Hoag continues to set the standard for excellence in her genre." - Suspense Magazine 

"Gripping"- Publishers Weekly

Praise for Down the Darkest Road:

“A mesmerizing psychological drama on loss, guilt, frustration and implacable, unexplainable evil.” - Kirkus

“Hoag keeps tight control over her plot in this book, raising the tension with every page that turns. She knows her characters, both good and bad, and intensifies the conflict in the most absorbing way. Not every writer of suspense can manage it so successfully, but Hoag does it from beginning to end.” —Huffington Post 

“Newcomers will have no trouble getting into this suspense novel rich in pre-DNA detecting methods.” —  Publishers Weekly 

“…the story zooms along to a satisfyingly creepy conclusion.” — USA Today

“Once again, bestselling Hoag plots craftily and creates characters readers root for.”—Kirkus Reviews (Starred) 

"The chilling premise and exciting twists make Hoag's thriller in every sense of the word. Guaranteed to be in high demand" - Booklist

“Stunning…Here [Hoag] stands above the competition, creating complex characters who evolve more than those in most thrillers. The breathtaking plot twists are perfectly paced in this compulsive page-turner.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“One of the most intense suspense writers around.” —Chicago Tribune

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.75 stars mystery , drama and suspense Aug. 3 2013
By Sandy S. TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
THE 9th GIRL is the fourth installment in Tami Hoag's contemporary crime series focusing on the high profile murder investigations in and around a fictional police precinct in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Although The 9th Girl is part of a series, each novel is a stand alone story of mystery and crime. The storylines are graphically detailed and the descriptive narration leaves nothing to the imagination. The 9th Girl focuses on a string of murders all pointing to a serial killer but the latest victim's identity hits too close to home.

Tami Hoag has combined the intrigue of a murder investigation with all the hallmarks of a television episode befitting Law and Order, Dexter and CSI. Add the camaraderie and anxiety of a close knit group of investigators, detectives and police detectives and you have the formula for a story of suspense, mystery and the criminally insane.

The storyline focuses on the recent murder of a young woman and its connections to a series of murders-all with a similar MO. As the investigation moves forward, all clues begin to point to something more personal and familiar.

The storyline also pulls into play the social media and online bullying seen in many recent headline news stories around the world using teen texting, Facebook cyber stalking and the viral propaganda of the powerful and rich. Where once bullying remained in the playgrounds and schoolyards it is brought onto the world stage through social media and shown to be a breeding ground for viral innuendo, discrimination and personal attacks. Even the dead are not protected from abuse and bullies.

The 9th Girl is first and foremost a story of suspense, mystery and criminal intent.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read Jan. 26 2014
When my friend suggested I read The 9th Girl , Disciples of Fortune, Les Miserables, as well as a couple of other stories that all turned out to be great, I had some doubts.I started with this story first and I don't regret it. Now, I trust his judgment on stories to read. I find this eerily disturbing story very fascinating. It is just great. This astonishing and well-written story held my interest all the way to the end. It is very touching and inspiring at the same time.

I could not leave the book; it kept my attention really acute; to discover the underlying truth with the Gray family's problem when it looks to be the serial killer's doing. The police team is great; and i really like Liska's attitude with her kids
