On the damp, leaf-strewn ground a gruesome trophy is displayed. It's a young woman. Although her battered body has been buried, her head is propped on a stone like an offering, her mouth and eyes glued shut, her eardrums destroyed. This killer has struck this peaceful town before - and the savagery he inflicts on his victims is increasing. Vince Leone, a pioneering FBI profiler, is called in to try to unlock the mind of the killer - a strategy that pulls him deep into the devastated community. Suspicions thicken, secrets spill out and reputations shatter as Vince draws ever nearer to evil '

Loved this book. I've always liked Tami Hoag books but I love this one. The cop characters were authentic, both the good and the bad. The situations are much like what a law enforcement officer would face during an investigation, with the exception of a very satisfying plot twist. I found this not predictable as some reviewers stated. I think this is one of her best!

I was happy that this book wasn't the usual predictable who -done- it .Then again,after reading and continuing to reread Miss Hoag's best seller Night Sins, which I love, I was hoping, not expecting, that I would like this book.Like, not love.Usually after finding a new, new to me, Author sometimes the next book you read by the same Author, might be a carbon copy formula of the last book or the plot is different and the characters names are different but the reader sees the same characters that they saw in the other they read.I love THIS book, I have put off reading anything else from Miss Hoag after reading Night Sins, which I absolutely love and I am rereading again.Her characters in both of these books are people, well some,lol you can relate to, situations that are relatable once I didn't want to be disappointed in the Next book so it's a wonderful surprise that I love this one just as much asNight sins .
I can't wait to read the next one from Miss Hoag she is superb writer.
I just love Tami Hoag's novels. Not only are they interesting, fast paced, and keeps you on the of your seat every time, but, my favorite thing of all is that they're not for the faint of heart. This novel was no different. It started out with such an ingenious plan of bringing you back to 1985, and describing it in great detail. Then she gets into the "meat" (for lack of a better word) of the book! As with every one of her books that I have read, she has yet to disappoint me. Enjoy this one!
Hoag brings terror to a small town where "things like this just don't happen around here." This is my first Hoag novel and I must say that I was highly entertained. Her characters are written very well and you get a since of what make each of them tick. The characters are complex but not to the point of not being believable. As they interact with one another you become suspicious of everyone and the story keeps you guessing right up until the end.

This small town is being terrorized by a serial killer that is snatching woman, torturing and killing them. Set in 1985, law enforcement is losing the battle against a keen mind that is not making mistakes as he leaves his victims out for display. Since it is the mid 80's DNA evidence is not a technology that they may utilize so they must investigate everyone No man is not under suspension and no woman is safe until the murderer is stopped.

As two bullies chase two other children after school one day, they go running down the hill and run into a scene of brutality that will shape and change each one of their lives forever. This is just the latest victim to be discovered and unfortunately for the police the killer leaves no clues on his identity. The story follows the lives of these four children and there families, Anne Navarre who is there teacher and the law enforcement agents looking for the perpetrator.

Tami Hoag has written a great murder mystery that mixes suspense with a little romance sneaked in and is an excellent novel for any reader. I couldn't put this novel down and I highly recommend it to all.

Grade: A+
I suppose one would expect a crime novel about profiling killers to rich in character development. This book is; there's plenty of depth and insight into the central characters. In fact, there are three strong candidates for the twisted serial killer. Ms. Hoag does an excellent job of switching directions with her writing so that just when you think you know who the killer is, another possible unsub emerges. You will have a hard time putting the book down.
In this book, a killer is stalking vulnerable women and removing their ability to see, speak or hear. The local police in Oak Knoll (a small town outside of LA) work with Vince Leone, a veteran FBI profiler, to try to catch this "see-no-evil" killer. A local fifth-grade teacher, Anne Navarre, becomes involved in the investigation when three of her students discover one of the bodies. The investigation is rife with complications and suspects, although little hard evidence ties the killings to any one suspect. The book grabs you from the first pages. The cast of characters is compelling and the plot keeps you guessing throughout. This book is set in the mid-1980s and I found it fascinating to be reminded that, less than 30 years ago, the tools available to the police to investigate crime were so much more rudimentary than they are today. This is a very strong showing from Tami Hoag, reminiscent of earlier books like Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust.
I could not put it down....just a fantastic read...highly recommended!!! Can't wait to read part two of the oak knoll series!
Honestly I went back and forth on this one. At first I was mildly entertained and then I was thoroughly intrigued and then I rolled my eyes pretty hard and then I was all in. The story is masterfully woven and a bit disturbing without being too graphic. It would be five stars if I hadn’t had some major eye roll moments, mostly concerning the romance. This was my first Hoag read and I’ll be sure to read more.
