    I am totally addicted to audiobooks now I absolutely LOVE being able to do other things while I listen to a book I listen when I'm doing the housework driving my car folding the washing Even have it on speaker when I'm in the shower Feels like I am accomplishing something when I am doing menial tasks Love it And I LOVED this Tami Hoag thriller This is the first book I have ever read of Hoag's but it absolutely wont be the lastThe year is 1985 and while running through the woods children find the body of a woman buried in the ground Her eyes had been glued together the ear drums destroyed and the mouth glued shut It is soon apparent that they have a serial killer on their hands in the town of Oak Knoll as two other bodies have been found this way in the last two years Investigator Mendez calls out FBI agent Vince Leone t0 help with the case Vince is an expert at the controversial new skill called profiling controversial back in 1985 that is and he uses his talents to find the killer The story also delves into the lives of the children who found the body and mainly focuses on their teacher Anne Navarre who finds herself at risk of becoming the next victimDeeper Than The Dead was a great story Although I was a bit disappointed with the ending and the twist that was not really a twist at all I was still thoroughly entertained by this wonderful bookThe audio version worried me at first as Kirsten Potters American accent is uite heavy and I cringed at having to listen to it for 10 hours However she did a really great job at the narration I enjoyed her performance and after a little while the accent didn't distract me at all I especially enjoyed her portrayal of Chicago's VinceThe characters were all really detailed and enjoyable The children were written really well I really enjoyed how all the characters interacted and intertwined within the story Loved the 1985 setting I can barely remember when mobile phones weren't the norm and fingerprinting was done by a fingerprinting expert and not a computer system Really makes you thankful for the technology that we take for granted today DNA evidence was unheard of and even police reports had to be sent or faxed over No email here folksLoved the romance even though it was EXTREMELY corny I want to marry you after knowing you for 3 days and going through an extremely traumatic ordeal Yeah right But still I found myself getting swept up in it I love a bit of romance with my thrillersMy favourite character was Vince by far Fabulous Bullet in the head Vince I hope he is in the future novels set in Oak Knoll yes this is the first in a series apparentlyWould I recommend it?Absolutely Thought it was a great read Looking forward to future ones hope the audio versions are done with the same narratorFor reviews visit my blogwwwbooksbabiesbeingcomFind me on twitterwwwtwittercomBBBMel

    The book took off from the very beginning Every chapter was filled with suspense and drama and honestly I couldn't put the book down I especially loved how Tami Hoag described the characters and their surroundings with such detail I actually felt like I was living in Oak Knoll The book had me guessing who the serial killer was the whole time and just when I thought it was this person new things happen and made me change my mind completely She really did a phenomenal job review link

    Set in the Eighties Deeper than the Dead is a sinister and disturbing yet nostalgic and impressive novel featuring a small town in the wake of a mysterious murder

    I pushed myself through the first 50 pages I try to give every book I pick up a fair chance I then gave it even time and it did move ok for a bit But it's asking too much of me I just can not suspend disbelief enough to finish this 1 A gay male kindergarten teacher What can I say? It's about as believable as a unicorn He lives alone with his two dogs and he's the heroine's BFF He literally referred to himself as her sidekick Argh He comes across to me as the stereotypical gay man who wants to be a straight woman Pro tip Gay men do not want to be straight women Every time he shows up it's like nails on a chalk board2 The book is too conscientiously set in 1985 Again and again the year is mentioned If I wasn't able to retain major plot points I'd be watching tv not reading3 The cops are psychic They know that In The Future we will have computers and fax machines and national data bases that will make our jobs so much easier That's about it I've read just shy of half the book and I'm done Oh the killer Forgot about him because I just don't care

    I have read Ms Hoag but it has been uite a while back so I was happy to revisit her This was OK for me A good suspenseful who done it with so much going on that the reader was led from one suspect to another before the big reveal A good job throwing out those breadcrumbs I appreciated that the author comments in the notes that she knew she wanted to tell a story set in the time of Dallas shoulder pads big hair and Miami Vice as this was her growing up time as well as mine What I thought was interesting was that she had to get rid of all the high tech that is in our world today No cell phones no computer or google searching no FBI data base fingerprints being matched visually We have come a long way That said I felt the detectives fell a bit flat especially the hot shot profiler from Chicago Perhaps he was not being fed all the same tidbits that the reader was It took an awfully long time to get to the rather drawn out ending I was also a bit amazed that in this small idyllic town there were SO many dysfunctional people And I mean a lot Goes to show you that we never know what goes on behind closed doors Entertaining? Yes Edge of my seat? Not really

    Audiobook narrated by Kirsten Potter 35Set in a California town a few hours from Los Angeles in 1985 Hoag’s thriller begins when four children stumble upon the partially buried body of a woman while playing in the woods Her eyes and mouth have been glued shut and it’s clear she’s been tortured As the children’s teacher Anne Navarre tries to get them the help they need to process this horror the local police turn to an FBI investigator Vince Leone to help develop a profile of the killerHoag writes a tight suspenseful tale The action is fast paced and I was completely captivated from beginning to end I liked the characters especially Anne and Vince This is the first book by Hoag that I’ve read; it won’t be the last Kirsten Potter does a fine job performing the audio book She has good pacing and enough skill as a voice artist to give each character a uniue voice I particularly liked the way she voiced Anne and Vince

    If I had read this book first in the series I would have never read books #2 and #3 Everyone except for three out of the four kids was terrible Every adult was the worst ever I felt like there were just too many characters for you to really focus on I think if Hoag had either stuck with the lead detective to tell her story or switched between him and the FBI profiler it would have worked better Instead we had at least 10 or POVs I think And we had the serial killer plot line the sociopath kid plot line the teacher and FBI agent falling in love the detective trying to run his case the one kid dealing with his terrible mother and absent father another kid dealing with her parents etc Nothing hung together very well IMHOI can't tell you much about the characters besides what I said above I liked the characters of Wendy and Tommy the best Everyone else was awfulThe writing was not typical Hoag either I feel like she was mimicking 1980s thrillerbooks back in the day which is the only way I can try to grasp why there was a lot of misogyny in this book I just felt turned off by the two male leads such as they were for this bookThe flow was pretty bad though I think the main reason was that we had so many POVs and you found yourself or excuse me I found myself getting impatient to get to who the serial killer was and the rest of the book felt like background noise I get why Haog did it though she follows up on two plot lines from this book Wendy and her parents along with the pre teen boy who is a bully and abusive in book #2 I will say that though the setting is the 1980s and Hoag makes a big deal about not relying on DNA evidence this book was pretty weak We don't get to see how not having DNA hampers the case at all The town brings in the FBI to profile the serial killer He is able to put together a pretty good profile of the killer I really did want to see issues like the Kinsey Milhone series does with her having to go and read microfiche she had to go and interview a ton of suspects her having to do a lot of nitty gritty work This whole book was the cops going around and acting like jackasses for the most part to suspects suspects wives and to kids at some points in the bookThe ending was a miss for me I don't know what big takeway I was supposed to get but unless Hoag has another book in the series I don't see what the payoff would be

    I listened to the audiobook There was a lot going on all at once and all of a sudden here in small town California multiple murder suspects for multiple murders families in discord and chaos no wedded bliss here children stumbling over dead people one of the children is a sociopath and even the police are not exempt from investigationOne of those called in to investigate is an FBI agent from Chicago but from his accent you would think him from New Jersey or New York I bet the narrator has seen Chicago's police chief Garry McCarthy he hails from NJ and NY on the news who happens to be the one and only person in Chicago who talks like that First rule of narrating If you're doing an accent please get it right When I can guess the killer right off the bat as I did here it always gives me mixed feelings about the book Either the writing was lacking or I am a genius I usually have to go with the former and for that reason 2 stars

    If you are looking for a romance novel with hot guys Deeper Than the Dead is not the book for you However if you want a novel that is going to keep you up late and worry about what your neighbors are up to you are going to love this novel Deeper Than the Dead has all the ingredients a good thriller needs including crooked cops creepy kids grisly murders and bizarre burialsOne of Hoag’s trademarks is her writing voice; it is consistent and smooth That alone would be enough to have her standing out from the mass amount of authors who are currently penning books Hoag is able to use this voice to create complex settings and interesting characters I was very impressed with Hoag’s ability to leap from one character POV to another Usually the character hopping gives me a hopping but Hoag was able to pull it off in a way that was very easy to follow More importantly by leaping POV’s Hoag was able to make me feel sympathetic towards the characters even the ones who are clearly evil All of her characters were well developed and stayed very consistent to themselves throughout the entire novelAs soon as you open the book you are launched directly into the middle of a torture scene Mixed into the victims thoughts are flashes of a letter that has clearly been written by a child glorifying their father The next scene is set in a fifth grade classroom and ends with the discovery of a decomposing body The scene is important because it introduces you to many of the main characters in a way that is both interesting and believableDeeper Than the Dead reads very uickly which is a good thing because once you start to read it you will find that putting it down is very nearly impossible

    I enjoyed this though it is the least favorite of her novels that I've read so farOn the positive side Tami Hoag knows serial killers She has clearly read her share of true life crime and FBI profiling books I've read them toI like that she explores the why in her fictional accounts I think most true crime books explore the how when where and what but few give us a good sense of the why That's where her time spent reading John Douglas and Roy Hazelwood showsShe's also a good writer The pacing is good and the multiple plots all come full circle On the negative side I thought too many of Hoag's characters relied on tired stereotypes And while I expect and even forgive unlikely coincidences she seemed to push the envelope hereOverall an entertaining read A little formulaic but hey that's expected and despite the cookie cutter approach I think she brings some interesting insights to the tableBottom line Should appeal to her fans andor fans of this genre
