A thriller from beginning to end. I listened to the book, and enjoyed it. Actually, it was hard to stop listening. ( )

The [9th Girl] was the story of a serial killer, Doc Holiday and a group of troubled teens and overworked cops. ( )

Audio version listened to on a road trip. Nicely handled, with enough leads and trips to keep the listener (me!) entertained for the miles I was driving. Not sure if this is part of a series or not, but I didn't feel like I was coming into the middle of an established set of characters. Would read more with the main ones though, just not the bad guys.

Read from October 16 to 19, 2014

Suspense is the name of the game in this novel. What issues interest you? Bullying in schools? Second marriages? Divorce? Serial killers? Other kinds of murder? Abductions and torture? Homosexuality? Lying? Family relationships? Poetry? Zombies? Yes, and these things and more await you in the pages of this book. And somehow the author ties them together and brings the reader to a satisfying conclusion. Graphic in places (I could have done with less description from the autopsy), and tragically sad in others, it is nevertheless fascinating, seeing how the police reconstruct crime scenes to understand the mind of the killer. Or killers. This book will keep you turning pages. And looking over your shoulder at the shadows. ( )

The 9th Girl. Tami Hoag. 2013. This is the second novel I have read by this popular author. It doesn’t take but a day or two to read these suspense novels. On a freezing New Year’s Eve night Detectives Kovac and Liska are called to investigate the homicide of a young woman that appears to be the work of a serial killer, Doc Holiday. As they become more involved in identifying the victim they realize she may be Penelope Gray a student at the same high school Liska’s son attends. The question becomes is she really a victim of the serial killer or was she brutalized by someone she knew and trusted. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525952977, Hardcover)

#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.

The ninth unidentified body to turn up in Minneapolis in 2012 is nicknamed Jane Doe 9. Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska take on the case and discover a shocking fact: This victim has been found without any identifiable characteristics, except for those that peg her as an adolescent girl. Before the investigation is through, the case will take the two detectives deep into the life and death of a teenage girl who wanted nothing more than to be “normal.” They will come perilously close to the bullies who tormented her, the twisted family dynamics that may have contributed to her death, and ultimately to the haunting details of a young love that just may hide the secret of Jane Doe 9’s terrible fate.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:14:16 -0400)

Minneapolis investigators Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska find themselves in pursuit of a serial killer whose latest victim is a bullied adolescent who desperately sought a normal life.
