"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?

What a wide range of reviews!
Not having read this author before, I am glad I didn't just stop at the first three or four reviews for I liked this book. I am thrilled I took a chance.
It's a police story that I found somewhat believable. It's tough being a working mother, especially of teenagers. I found this to be very realistic of that without being too whinny. Very plausible. The story was engaging in a way that kept my attention to the bitter end. I am looking forward to reading more of the author's work.
The narrator did a decent job - I don't get the beef.
Social sci-fi, vampires, and modern detective thrillers, oh my!
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.
The ending was the best part of the book, I really didn't foresee it.
I might wait until it's On Demand.
If you are a fan of Hoag's Alibi Man and Deeper Than the Dead, you may not be impressed by this one.
Yes, Tami Hoag's books are always good.
Easy to listen to, he's very articulate without being boring.
I loved this book. Great detail into the characters lives. Super story line, keeps you guessing until the end. Can't wait to listen to more from this author.
Addicted to Audible!
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.
this book was very disappointing. Im a big Hoag fan..but this was some what of a let down..and the ending really sucked!!
she was fine
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.
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.
