Waiting on Wednesday - September 21


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Down the Darkest Road (Oak Knoll Book #3)
Publish Date: December 27, 2011

Deeper Than the Dead introduced Tami Hoag's millions of fans to Oak Knoll, a small California town that, in the mid-eighties, seemed as idyllic as any . . . until the See-No-Evil killer shattered that notion. It took FBI agent Vince Leone and a new technique called "profiling" to put an end to the trauma.

Secrets to the Grave brought Leone's teacher-turned-child- advocate wife, Anne, into a central role. Together with Vince and local sheriff 's deputy Tony Mendez, she solved an Oak Knoll murder with a particularly challenging mystery: The victim never existed.

And now Hoag returns once more to Oak Knoll for the third installment of this bestselling series. Through Leone's pioneering, science-based investigatory skills, Hoag explores the early days of forensic police work. And through the chilling case at the heart of Down the Darkest Road, she hooks ever more readers into the meticulously crafted, all-too-terrifying world of Oak Knoll, where the scariest secrets of all can be found . . . Down the Darkest Road

I'm finishing up Secrets to the Grave on audio right now and enjoying it, so I am anxious to get back to Oak Knoll.  I love that these books are set in the 1980s when all this science was just getting started and I was in my youth.  It's pretty funny to listen to and read.  Great suspense, can be gory, but they are good books with some romance as well.  Ms. Hoag is one of those auto-read authors for me.

So what are you waiting on this week?

I love a good suspense read and the more gore the better. For some reason I haven't read Tami Hoag. I can see I need to change that.
