Keeps you in suspense from beginning to end.
I love Kristen Potter... she's such a good narrator.
I couldn't put it down until the end. Keep writing books like this one. I enjoy it a lot.
I did not want to put this book down. With several excellent possibilities for the serial killer, Ms. Hoag kept me guessing a lot longer than usual. The author's characters, especially the children, are very compelling. The main hero and heroine are likeable and their romance, though a small part of book, was gently touching. I hope we can visit them again in another mystery thriller by Ms. Hoag.
Tami Hoag presents a thriller that moves quickly, has interesting characters and,especially important, is set in 1985-before cell phones, DNA evidence and profiling. The nascent field of behavioral science is fascinating. Fans of killer thrillers will find the story intriguing. Best of all is the narrator. She is phenomenal.
Kept me Guessing
Yes, I thought it was great
I loved this book, the character are fabulous
Reading, the arts and physical activity clarify, explain, illustrate, and interpret life’s goods and bads.
All three Oak Knoll stories are good get away from everyday life and loose oneself in a mystery thriller. Not the best mysteries, always about a horrid subject; but Hoag knows how to entertain.
Book One was very good, Book Two as good, and Book Three was not bad. By the third in one week though, I had enough. Good characters in Books One and Two. Less so in Book Three but the read does not disappoint.
Audiobook. First time I’ve listened to a Tami Hoag story, and not the last, as it is certainly an enjoyable read. It’s rare for a procedural crime novel to be penned by a woman, for starters. How great is that! The who-done-it story of Deeper Than the Dead is filled with well defined characters and suspense. Although the villain became apparent probably a little sooner than Hoag might have liked, it was still an enjoyable tale and I’ll likely continue the series.
Deeper Than the Dead has a significant problem, though. The portrayal by the narrator of one character, the Chicago FBI agent, doesn’t work. Kirsten Potter does a credible job with all except when dealing with this Chicago accent. The character sounded a bit more Bostonian, the opinion of this local Chicagoan. But, this minor faux pas is forgiven … she does a good job with children, women, and men. It’s a fun mystery, worth the purchase.
A quiet town is suddenly infused with multiple criminal and or dysfunctional families. All the suspects just happen to be parents of children seemingly located at the same school in the same grade. Apparently these same kids stumble upon the body of a victim which leads to a serial murder investigation.
This is an excellent read with believable characters that you can care about and root for and also despise. The setting was nostalgic and revealing. We have really come along way.
The plot was fast paced but had very good character development. The murders and kidnappings were chilling and more realistic than you want to believe.
Kirsten Potter is an excellent narrator who portrayed both children and adults, men and women in separate distinctive voices without being distracting.
I would recommend this author to anyone who loves mysteries and well developed characters.
Married "mom" of 3 crazy dogs and 1 cat! I developed a love for reading just after college & only recently for audio. Loving it so far!
I started listening to this book and soon began to think I had read this book already! I checked my Kindle and I was right.... I read it about 2 years ago. I remembered the premise and that I liked the book, but I didn't remember "who done it". So, I decided to go ahead and listen. I am so glad I did!!
Kirsten Potter is AMAZING in her performance! She brings Tami Hoag's great characters and story to life!! She is the best I have heard so far!
I would be surprised if you regret this buy!
