The 9th Girl | [Tami Hoag]

The 9th Girl

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?

Publisher's Summary

"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 victims, 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?

    Story
    "This is No Alibi Man"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There is a lot of discourse between teenagers, I don't really want to listen to that. This is not one of Hoag's best.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was the best part of the book, I really didn't foresee it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I might wait until it's On Demand.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a fan of Hoag's Alibi Man and Deeper Than the Dead, you may not be impressed by this one.

    "Very good! I liked it very much."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, Tami Hoag's books are always good.


    What about David Colacci’s performance did you like?

    Easy to listen to, he's very articulate without being boring.

    "A bit of a twist..."

    ...but I figured it out way too soon. Tami Hoag writes good books. David Colacci did a good job narrating. Makes for pleasant listening.

    "Dont waste your time"

    This was pure garbage. A waste of time. Not well written, not original. There was really nothing I liked about it. I love mysteries but this one was not worth my time.

    "Narrator takes this book to another level"

    Mediocre authors should be queuing up for David Colacci to be their narrator. He certainly did an excellent job with this far fetched plot and actually made the package quite entertaining and enjoyable. This was a story you always knew was a story; not once did it become credible and if you can accept that then there is no reason not to enjoy this excellently read crime romp.

    "So So...."

    The narrator was alright. Nothing to write home about. The story was good. I think if the narrator could of breathed a little more life into the story I would of enjoyed it much more.

    "Not her best"

    Good enough to listen to, but not her best. I had a hard time with the narrator. He's hard to listen to through a whole book imo.

    "Worth reading"

    Liked every minute. Didn't drag like some recent books I've read. Sad but not maudlin. Good characters and good portrayals.
