NetGalley review.


Sam Kovac and Nikki Lista are homicide detectives called to an almost unbelieveable crime on New Years. An almost unidentifiable teenager is found in the center of the road, having been run over after she popped out of a moving car’s truck. The media has stared to refer to her as Zombie Doe. Who is Zombie Doe? And where did she come from? Kovac and Lista begin their investigation, turning over stone after stone until the brilliant finale. 

This is such a great book. This is my first Tami Hoag and won’t be the last. This is the fourth book with Kovac and Lista, but don’t let that stop you. Hoag eases you into their world and by Chapter two, you feel like you’ve known them forever. I love the dark humor, the quick dialogue and the inner demons each detective faces. All of the characters were so full of life, direction and purpose. It’s what a good mystery book should be.

And let’s not get me started on the plot. Wow. There are a lot of sub stories going on but all of them were intriguing, drawing you deeper and deeper into their world. Loved every bit of it. I stayed up late into the night to keep reading, until I fell asleep with my kindle on my lap. I wanted to find out what happened and I couldn’t stop thinking about poor Zombie Doe either.

By the end, you’ve been on such a ride, you think you know what happened. You think you know who did it. And I was still surprised.Great writing, fast paced story. Read it when you have a good chunk of time- because you won’t want to put it down!
