Deeper than the Dead

In Tami Hoag's, Deeper than the Dead, the first book in the Oak Knoll series trilogy, it was a stellar thriller. It centered on a sleepy quiet college town, when four  school kids discovered a murder in a park, and woke up the neighborhood. Secrets came out in full force, when the investigation was in full wing, and shocking surprises disturbed the whole community of Oak Knoll, California. Taken place in the 1980s, way back before forensic science and technology took place, that's when the FBI came in with Vince and Ann, the school teacher. Even a possible romance blossom between them wrapped things up in a surprising ending of who committed the crime.

I loved this series. I loved how it taken place in Oak Knoll, California, in the 1980s. Even nowadays, we can see how far advanced we've gone in forensic science and technology since then for solving crimes. I loved how Ann and Vince team up to solve this murder and fall in love. I didn't like the way the crime was committed and why though. I did feel sorry for the Whitman family, too. That just broke my heart, even for the victim's family as well. Great drama, tons of throwback suspense, with plenty of action in the heart of this thriller.

Get ready to flashback in the 1980s with Deeper than the Dead. Pick up a copy today!
