Summary

New Year's Day is a time for new beginnings, but Minneapolis homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska are focused on endings: specifically, the tragic end of their latest murder victim, an unidentified young woman discovered on the side of the freeway. Believed to be the victim of a serial killer, Kovac and Liska are determined to do the girl the small justice of returning her body to her family as they investigate her case, but it is no simple task matching the broken corpse to any of the scores of missing persons reports, especially when no one seems to be looking for her.
Meanwhile, recent widow Jeannie Reiser is frantic when she is unable to get in touch with her daughter, Rose, who, as an 18-year-old, is a legal adult rather than a missing child in the eyes of the law. Jeannie's desperate attempts to get the police to believe her child is in trouble lead her closer and closer to the New Year's Doe and to an evil even Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska may be unable to stop.
Tami Hoag once again proves her place as "one of the most intense suspense writers around" (Chicago Tribune) with The 1st Victim

Great introduction to Tami Hoag

Excellent short story and a great introduction to Hoag's Kovak and Liska series. I have downloaded 'The 9th Girl' on the strength of this. Excellent characterisation and plot which is often difficult to achieve in crime short stories. Narrator does an excellent job too.

Give me more...

I chose this book because I like the author. I did not really pay attention to the length. This is a short story. It is well written and has good narration. Needless to say it leaves you wanting more.

SHORT, SHORT

Where's the rest of the book? ? Good story. I guess I didn't look at length of book.
