Another great find at the local library, I had heard good things about the crime books that Tami Hoag writes so I thought I would look one up instead of buying one. I have to say that I wasn’t disappointed by the outcome, the book isn’t as fast paced as some of the thrillers I have read before but it makes up for that with the detail and the great plot.
The 9th Girl is about a serial killer abducting girls when the opportunity arrises and dumping them wherever takes their fancy. On New Years eve another girl is found at the scene of an accident and Homicide Detectives Kovac and Liska think that this must be the work of their serial killer. However things aren’t always as they seem and as the case progresses Detective Liska realises that her son may have known the missing/murdered girl and that there seems to be something that everyone keeps covering up!
Can Kovak and Liska solve the mystery of missing girl Penny Gray whilst also identifying the Jane Doe in their morgue, dealing with parental issues and office politics this book grabs you from the beginning. A great read over the christmas period on a cold winters night.
