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?

Grips you, holds you down, keeps you guessing

Tami Hoag's 9th girl is gripping. It a detective novel that will keep you guessing until the last reveal. I find myself thinking about all the clues and trying to figure out who the killer is. I get close only to have more clues that makes my choice seem wrong. Am i wrong or are the detectives wrong. I am moved and enbedded with the characters. I find i want more books from Tami.

Tami Hoag is a true master story teller!

This is yet another smashing hit by Tami Hoag. I have never read a bad Tami Hoag book & this one is easily one of her best. The narrator did a great job of differentiating the voices & still being the narrator. I love the duo of Nikki Liska & Sam Kovak. The interplay between them is excellent & so real I swear I know them. Having been a single parent I very much identify with Liska & her issues. I could go on all day. If you love a good murder mystery/police procedural you will love this book.

Riveting.

I've loved all the books Tami Hoag has written. Really good narration, also. Listen when you get a chance. Colacci was able to change his voice so that you were always aware of which character was speaking. I've learned not all can accomplish that.

Well written, excellent performance.

At times the high school clique drama got to be annoying. Story was a little short on suspense. The performance was flawless.

The 9th Girl

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, definitely, right from the beginning. The twists and turns never ended.

What does David Colacci bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The way he differentiates the characters voices. You can actually forget that a man is narrating Kovak, then Liska etc..

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Tense, never knowing what was going to happen next.

Any additional comments?

Excellent read, do yourself a favor, if you like Gore/ psychological thrillers, this is the book for you

I really liked it

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.
