#1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag brings back her fan-favorite Minneapolis investigators Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska in the haunting new thriller The 9th Girl. The ninth unidentified body to turn up in Minneapolis in 2012 is nicknamed Jane Doe 9. Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska take on the case and discover a shocking fact: This victim has been found without any identifiable characteristics, except for those that peg her as an adolescent girl. Before the investigation is through, the case will take the two detectives deep into the life and death of a teenage girl who wanted nothing more than to be “normal.” They will come perilously close to the bullies who tormented her, the twisted family dynamics that may have contributed to her death, and ultimately to the haunting details of a young love that just may hide the secret of Jane Doe 9’s terrible fate. Hoag’s most recent books have been among the biggest bestsellers of her career; with the return of Kovac and Liska, The 9th Girl is destined to be a megahit.

I hadn’t read any of the earlier books in this series but was able to easily pick up with the recurring characters without having to endure a huge info dum...
2.5 Stars. Pass.Pretty good ending and I was satisfied with the way Hoag built the suspense. However, it didn't really pick up until at least halfway into the book, which was too slow for my tastes. I was a bit bored by the first half. The concept wasn't interesting enough for me. The victim, who wa...
