Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage. Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago, as she, the killer, and he, the victim, rush haplessly toward the main event. He is a committed cheater; she lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds; she likes to settle scores. He decides to play for keeps; she has nothing left to lose. Told in alternating voices, The Silent Wife is about a marriage in the throes of dissolution, a couple headed for catastrophe, concessions that can’t be made, and promises that won’t be kept.

I am still in the middle of this book, I want to like it, and I do like the story line. I, however, find it very difficult to listen to this narrator. Her inflection does not make for easy listening. I wish It was an easier listen.

I have been waiting for Tiffanys new book to come out, and now that it has I am very disappointed. I have tried to get thru this book several times and usually cannot listen to more than a chapter at a time...just so bad.

Deeper Than the Dead introduced Tami Hoag's millions of fans to Oak Knoll, a small California town that, in the mid-eighties, 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. Now Hoag returns once more to Oak Knoll for the third installment of this best-selling series.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kirsten Potter’s performances?

Yes

Do you think Down the Darkest Road needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes, I would like to hear more about these characters. I feel like this book was barley connected to the first two.

Any additional comments?

This is my least favorite book in the series, I do not feel that it follows the original characters enough.

When Marissa is found brutally murdered, with her young daughter, Haley, resting her head on her mother's bloody breast, she sends the idyllic California town of Oak Knoll into a tailspin. Already on edge with the upcoming trial of the See- No-Evil killer, residents are shocked by reports of the crime scene, which might not have been discovered for days had it not been for a chilling 911 call: a small child's voice saying, "My daddy hurt my mommy."
