"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?

Definitely, I was constantly on the edge of my seat from the first page. It just went on from there.and never stopped.I hated to see this book end!
Yes, definitely, right from the beginning. The twists and turns never ended.
The way he differentiates the characters voices. You can actually forget that a man is narrating Kovak, then Liska etc..
Tense, never knowing what was going to happen next.
Excellent read, do yourself a favor, if you like Gore/ psychological thrillers, this is the book for you
Say something about yourself!
I do not know why some people could not believe that bullying exist and this type of bullying. I really understood the cop who was a mother. I am a chemist and a mother and I jusr felt like her. Like the book really.
Extremely well written. Works well as a standalone, although it is the fourth in a series. Narration excellent. Satisfactory ending. Can't get any better.
HOLY F&CK DIDN'T SEE THIS COMING.
So sickening and sad...evil comes in all forms. Sometimes they are that crazy guy, sometimes they are the great looking guy that you would never think would do anything mean, or the mom that that has the bad-seed daughter.
Typical cop drama. Could have been an hour of CSI on TV.
Girl brutally murdered, long investigation, crazy twist.
the up the author did a great job the narrator did a great job this is a great book to listen to I finished it in two days which is very rare for me I hope you enjoy it as much as I did
