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?

Not worth the time

The story was lackluster at best. It may be better in hard copy, but the horrible narration that laid out the story set the pace and tone. I was really hoping that the narration would improve, that he would be able to give life to the characters, and that this book would have a surprising end to the story. If you are wanting good narration, a well developed plot and characters, I would suggest that you look elsewhere.

Got me many miles through Connecticut!

Tami Hoag has become one of my favorites. The story is an easy listen. She didn't loose me with a cast of hundreds. (I still have to concentrate on my driving!) The characters' feelings are well defined and believable. Having become an expert in sexual assault investigations as a police detective Miss Hoag was right on the mark with the feelings depicted in this novel.
The narrator was was excellent as always.
More of the same please!

good...but not the best Tami Hoag

I listen to a lot of books and a lot of Tami Hoag. While the story was good...the detectives were not as thorough (eg) checking the mom's house Or checking the friend's house for evidence. lots of things came out at the end where I was like really??? you didn't already check that?
this was the first one where I've seen that.

Really sorry I read Cold,cold Heart first. This story would have given me a better perspective had I read it first.

Good mystery thriller!

What made the experience of listening to The 9th Girl the most enjoyable?

I enjoy this narrator and his ability to change his voices. The story has a lot of violence, but also some pretty good messages of acceptance, family love and tolerance, and some humorous banter between the detectives helps keep it light. Tami Hoag's detective team of Kovac and Listka are great characters.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The 9th Girl?

I started putting many of the author's clues together and had the "aha! moment" before Hoag actually lets you know who is the villian.

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

He makes the characters come to life, and I think he does a really fabulous job voicing Kovac.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. It's over a dozen hours long.
