Oh.....Is there Going to be Another "Oak Knoll" Book.....Book 4???
Secrets to the Grave is the second in a trilogy about the town of Oak Knoll, not a place to live if you’re squeamish about grizzly murder. The story centers on the particularly gruesome murder of a young single mother. Her four year old little girl witnesses the murder. Sad premise to start. Ann Leone, the main character of this trilogy, is a lover of children, studying child psychology, and comes to the aide of the girl. The ultimate villain came to me much sooner than Tami Hoag would have liked, I’m sure…but, I won’t be a spoiler. I think my favorite character in the series is Fanny. I hope he appears in more books, a fun guy…had me laugh out loud a few times.
The book is read by Kirsten Potter, and she does a credible job with all character voices except the former Chicago cop. He sounds more east coast/Bostonian than midwestern (speaking as a born and bred Chicagoan). Great job with the other characters, including the child. Unabridged audiobook, about thirteen hours of listening.
If you enjoy a Hoag murder mystery, you’ll enjoy the story. I did, and I’m ready for the third book in the Oak Knoll trilogy.
Economic litigation attorney. Reading, the arts and physical activity are all necessary.
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.
Say something about yourself!
This is a great series and a good narrator. The writing styles gives the perspective from all characters giving a better perspective and more in-depth story.
It’s interesting to remember what it was like in the 80’s (for those of us that are old enough) I tend to forget the days of not being able to get in touch with someone at any time.
I loved the first book, but this one bored me to tears. Eight hours into the book I decided I DID NOT care how it ended. The winy little girl got on my nerves! I don't know if the author, narrator or both are to blame.
Yes, could not stop slistening.
The story line.
This was the best combination of story line and reader I have ever listened to.
This book kept me so emotionally engaged. The performer drew you into the story as though you were part of it.
I am excited to start the next book with the same characters
Audio Book Junkie!
I read Secrets to the Grave and immediately downloaded the next two books in the series. It is a series that I will listen to again. I like Tami Hoag, she is one of my favorite authors.
I would listen to it again because Tami Hoag is one of my favorite authors and she stays true to form with this one.
Loved all the different voices and inflections.
There were a couple times I laughed during the reading of this book.
Yes, it is an entertaining novel with good intrigue...
Yes, just a great story...
A great listen...
This book is entertaining and is perfect for any long drive or distraction.
I truly enjoyed this book, Tami Hoag does a good job writing a murder/suspense thriller in an age before DNA & computers. Although sometimes its a bit ridiculous that the main detectives (Vince & Tony) talk about what DNA will bring to the job of solving murders. I can't imagine any detective in the 80's had any notion DNA & computers would take the role they have taken in solving murders. That is hardly a complaint just a musing I had while listening to this great novel. The characters are rich in substance and don't always take the path that is most predictable. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and the one before it and Already downloading book 3.
