Tami Hoag is one of my favorite authors so I was thrilled to learn she was bringing back Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska for another mystery. This one does not disappoint. The plot is really interesting to watch unfold. The characters, as usual, are very interesting and well developed. I highly recommend this book.

Oh My Gosh! I just hated when I had to stop reading this book. I use to read Tami Hoag all of the time,don't know what happened but I will be reading everything she does and the ones I missed. There were times when I actually held my breath. You think you have it figured out but in true form she fools you.Don't miss out on this book.

As a pre-ordered of anything Tami Hoag, this latest book has a plot that keeps me reading, characters that are human, a good mix of real life facts and a twist or two that have me reading nonstop and wishing for another when I am done! Thank you again Ms. Hoag.

If you are a Tami Hoag fan, get this book! Was suspenseful and hard to put down. Read it in a day and a half. It was that hard to put down.

The plot is twisted and unnerving yet so well put together. A must read for those of you into serial killer mysteries.

I really loved this book. It takes place in Minneapolis and I live in a suburb of Minneapolis so a lot of the places and roads were familiar to me. The writing was excellent I didn't want to put the book down. I also really liked the characters, the relationship between the detective team, the relationship and difficulties with the female heroine and her kids. It really was a great read.

This story has twists and turns and a surprise at the end. The understanding of teengers' desire to be in the "in" crowd makes it appropriate for a younger reader. It will hold your interest until the plot unravels.

It was good to have a new book by Tami Hoag as I always enjoy her writting. I have always enjoyed her books. She keeps you interested from the first chapter to the last and keeps you wondering where the next turn will take you. I think it would be a good book for Book Club discussions as the characters are always interesting.

I have read most of Hoag's books and now all in her kovac/liska series. This was a tightly written book, spell-binding, with two major plots that didn't come together until the very end. Well developed characters...hard to put down. Hope that there more of this series in the future!

I read this a few weeks ago and had to go back and re read the ending so I could remember the book. I think her earlier books were much more suspenseful.

Easily the greatest book ive ever read. I found myself getting so attatched to the storyline and charactars that at times i thought it was all real. So captivating.

A page turner. Kyle is a stand up young man. Standing up to a bully. Nothing is never good about killing but someone has to take them down. Thankful for the men and women on the police force that continue to do their job, regardless of the time it does take them away from their family. Enjoyed Det.Liska and Det. Kovac!

"The 9th Girl" by Tami Hoag is out in print now just awaiting your download and it was so good I would highly recommend it. Nikki Liska and Sam Kovac, homicide detectives in Minneapolis, are working on the "Doc Holiday" serial killer case when another victim shows up on New Years. It is unclear if the horribly disfigured woman was alive when she fell out of the trunk of a dark sedan into traffic. When the detectives arrive on the scene they're not sure if the now dead young woman is Doc Holiday's ninth victim or did someone else hate her enough to kill her. Before they figure out anything else Liska and Kovac need to identify the body. Who is missing their daughter on New Year's day? Detective Liska is not only a dedicated homicide detective, she's also a mom and she's having trouble with her older son. The problems she's having at home compound as the case she's working becomes more and more complicated. When one of her son's friends turns up missing Liska battles the need to be in two places at once. When a task force to catch Doc Holiday is formed both detectives are pulled in too many directions and details are being missed. Someone killed their ninth victim, there's a missing sixteen year old girl and Doc Holiday continues to evade capture. Which details are related to one another in this book will shock you. This is my second time reading this book. I read it when it was published but was too ill at that time to review it. Reading it a second time I was really surprised to find that it was so wonderfully complicated and detailed that it was just as enjoyable the second time around. Even though I almost never re-read books, I found this one so good that it was worth the second read. Liska and Kovac are great together. Although some reviewers said they found Liska's home problems annoying, I actually found them very realistic. The subplot with her son really added a lot to the story line, showing that Liska is more than just a detective, the extra details rounded out her character wonderfully. This is so well worth the reader's time. If you've ever read a Tami Hoag you know she never disappoints. If you haven't indulged then try this one, it's a winner.

I was about to read Hoag's most recent novel "Cold Cold Heart" when I discovered it was important to read "9th Girl" first. A novel that kept me on the edge of my "seat" and was so well-written. I would highly recommend both of these novels for any reader who enjoys a good mystery. I will definitely look for more of Hoag's mystery novels.

This was a great mystery. Kept me in suspense to the very end. If you've read Tami Hoag before and liked her, you'll love this.

This might have been a fine book but I purchased as an audio book for my 2-hour daily commute.  Unfortunately, the editors should be flogged as they edited the sound by clipping the first letter off most of the sentences.  Can figure it out most of the time but very confusing to have "She" shortened to "He" which occurs dozens of times and you are constantly trying to make sense of the wrong gender.  Didn't anyone give an actual listen to the audio book before it was released.  Have had several books where the same dialogue was repeated but this is a first.  Worst listening since Harlen Coben tried to narrate one of his own books.
