Number-one New York Times best-selling author Tami Hoag returns with the latest entry in her riveting Oak Knoll series.
Deeper Than the Dead introduced Tami Hoag's millions of fans to Oak Knoll, a small California town that, in the mid-80s, seemed as idyllic as any... until the See-No-Evil killer shattered that notion. It took FBI agent Vince Leone and a new technique called "profiling" to put an end to the trauma.
Secrets to the Grave brought Leone's teacher-turned-child- advocate wife, Anne, into a central role. Together with Vince and local sheriff 's deputy Tony Mendez, she solved an Oak Knoll murder with a particularly challenging mystery: The victim never existed. And now Hoag returns once more to Oak Knoll for the third installment of this best-selling series.
Through Leone's pioneering, science-based investigatory skills, Hoag explores the early days of forensic police work. And through the chilling case at the heart of Down the Darkest Road, she hooks ever more readers and listeners into the meticulously crafted, all-too-terrifying world of Oak Knoll, where the scariest secrets of all can be found... Down the Darkest Road.

I don't if it is the performance or that the authors are just good but whenever I'm not sure what book I want to buy I usually pick one Kirsten Potter narrated and I'm never disappointed.
excellent would want this story to keep going! oak knoll series are my favorite books, hoping there are more.
I have just finished the third book in the Oak Knoll series .... She is an incredible writer !!! I could hardly break away to go to work !! Prior to these three books, I had never read anything by Tami Hoag..Now, I'm about to select another! She so develops her characters that you become attached to them and wonder how they are ... Even after the book is over !!! I hope there will be more to come in the Oak Knoll series !!! Thank you , Tsmi, for so much suspense and enjoyment !!
I truly enjoyed this recording. This was the third book in a series and I have enjoyed all three of them. Tami Hoag just keeps improving with age. I hated for this story to end. Bring on some more Ms Hoag.
I absolutely loved it! The narrator was amazing in being able to express the different characters and there emotions. She really made it easy to feel apart of what was going on. Kept me locked in from page one. The story line was great and I loved the ending.
This is a moving,. complex story. It is told from point of views of mother and sister of young girl who goes missing at age 16 years. Years. pass and while police have person of interest no proof can be found. How does that impact mother, father, sister, and police who are trying to find out what happened? Meanwhile what is happening with kidnapper who remains free to torture survivors and seek more victims? This is a disturbing,
moving story that is full of tension and despair. I found it hard to pause my read of this novel. I love author's vivid, complex characters. Hope there will be other Oak Knoll novels.
Not as good as the other Oak Knoll books. I was hoping for a mystery, but this isn't really a whodunit. You know from the beginning who the bad guy is so there's not much suspense or excitement. There is some interesting character development but not much on the part of the main characters from the Oak Knoll series so that was a little disappointing.
I don't know about you, but why are there so so so many 5 star reviews. I LOVE books, but so few are 5 star.
Publisher's summary is a little misleading, in the way that news teasers are.
I listened to the 3 Oak Knoll series because the first one was okay and I was curious. The story is good, but I wasn't really all that entertained. I listened to it because I want to see how she was going to wrap it up. It was as expected and a little disappointing.
Really a 2 and a half.
