From Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Hoag (Kill the Messenger) ventures into serial killer territory with results sure to please her many fans, though unresolved plot threads, both intentional and inadvertent, may put off veteran readers of the genre. One fall day in 1985 in Oak Knoll, Calif., fifth-grader Tommy Crane and his sidekick, Wendy Morgan, are fleeing the class bully, Dennis Farman, through a local park when Tommy stumbles over the head of a dead woman buried up to her neck. Two hours from Los Angeles, Oak Knoll is not the sort of town where major crime is a problem, but a serial killer is on the loose who's already murdered and tortured several women and has another on deck in his secret lair. Fifth-grade teacher Anne Navarre, who counsels Tommy and Wendy, is soon at the center of the investigation being led by a hunky FBI agent, Vince Leone. This is serial killer lite with Hoag's romance roots dictating both the prose style and the unveiling of the killer. 8-city author tour. (Dec.)

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.
I can't wait to read the next one from Miss Hoag she is superb writer.
