#1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag returns with her second thriller in the Deeper than the Dead microseries, exploring the early days of forensic investigation, the characteristics of innocence-and the nature of evil.

Marissa Fordham had a past full of secrets, a present full of lies. Everyone knew of her, but no one knew her.

When Marissa is found brutally murdered, with her young daughter, Haley, resting her head on her mother's bloody breast, she sends the idyllic California town of Oak Knoll into a tailspin. Already on edge with the upcoming trial of the See- No-Evil killer, residents are shocked by reports of the crime scene, which might not have been discovered for days had it not been for a chilling 911 call: a small child's voice saying, "My daddy hurt my mommy."

Sheriff's detective Tony Mendez faces a puzzle with nothing but pieces that won't fit. To assist with his witness, Haley, he calls teacher-turned-child advocate Anne Leone. Anne's life is hectic enough-she's a newlywed and a part- time student in child psychology, and she's the star witness in the See-No-Evil trial. But one look at Haley, alone and terrified, and Anne's heart is stolen.

As Tony and Anne begin to peel back the layers of Marissa Fordham's life, they find a clue fragment here, another there. And just when it seems Marissa has taken her secrets to the grave, they uncover a fact that puts Anne and Haley directly in the sights of a killer: Marissa Fordham never existed.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renee | 2/18/2014

    " Really intriguing series. Kept me very interested. Just really tired of all of the F bombs these days!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 2/7/2014

    " Good follow up to Deeper Than The Dead. Although it was it's own story, having read Deeper Than The Dead first really helps to understand what is going on in this story. It ties up some loose ends and continues where that one left off. It also leaves enough out there for another follow up story or two. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea Strickland | 2/5/2014

    " I am really enjoying Tami Hoag's Oak Knoll series. The stories are full of twist and turns, without being difficult to follow. The main characters are easy to identify with and very likable. Great mystery/thriller! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harriet | 2/5/2014

    " A great thriller. I gave it a four because I thought it dragged in a few spots but I would recommend it for reading. There was a lot of excitement and a shocking ending! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 1/29/2014

    " Tami Hoag can really leave you on the edge of your seat all the way to the end. A four year old saw the murder her mother and in the shadows knows who it was. There are many people involved in determining this one with good and bad intentions a great nail bitter. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon Arehart | 1/19/2014

    " Meh. Too many things going on. Some really dumb, out of character moves that served to further the plot. Too many unbelievable moments. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shirley | 1/19/2014

    " This was an ok mystery novel, but not the kind of book that you cannot put down. The description of the murder scene and other violent events were pretty disgusting, so it is not for the feint of heart. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 1/13/2014

    " pretty explicit murder scene. a little over the top, slow reading, but great book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelley Higginbotham | 1/13/2014

    " a little unrealistic but a lot of murder mysteries are. It was an easy read, good read for a rainy Monday. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeffrey Higgins | 11/30/2013

    " Excellent follow up to Deeper than The Dead! Stayed up till Midnight to find out who the killer was! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy Henderson | 11/18/2013

    " I thought this was a very good book. It had a lot of twist and turns and kept you guessing until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 11/13/2013

    " I have read a lot of her other books. I liked the mystery behind this one but there was also too many subplots to keep track of. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lainy | 8/21/2013

    " Liked this book just as much as deeper than dead "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kari | 7/17/2013

    " Great addition to the series. I didn't guess the end. Still loved the characters. Looking forward to the newest one coming out soon! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 12/6/2012

    " Probably should read #1 first (luckily I did)- boy, I don't want to live there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charmaine | 8/9/2012

    " lots of chaacters introduced quickly took some time to get my head round all the characters some of whom didn't really need mentioning a good book all the same "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 6/4/2012

    " Suspenseful...good character development...somewhat over- the- top, disturbingly gory... but fast read, page- turner, if you like murder mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy (Thoughts of Joy) | 5/28/2012

    " You can read my thoughts here. (3.25/5) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noreen | 3/20/2012

    " The book was a little bit slow paced and didn't pick up until the end. I love a book with a few good twists but this book lost the plot a little somewhere. All in all though it did grab my attention and I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharlene | 2/24/2012

    " Quite explicit writing, if you are squeamish you might not like her writing. I will read more from her. Good creepy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 12/28/2011

    " Very suspensful all the way through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kym | 8/31/2011

    " I like this 3 book series by Tami Hoag. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Newett1att.net | 7/16/2011

    " Good book. I picked it up on vacation. Suspenseful and good. I would try this author again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 5/15/2011

    " I loved the first Oak Knoll book. This book continues with the same excellent characters, and adds new ones that are equally complex. I love Tami Hoag's writing. All of the Oak Knoll novels are set in the early 1980s before DNA evidence and personal computers were in common use. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 4/23/2011

    " Good mystery. Recommend you read see no evil first as there are many references to that book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 B J | 4/18/2011

    " I love Tami Hoag's "Deeper than the Dead" series. Even though not far into this one I already knew who the killer was. She has a way of telling a story that brings the reader right into the drama, fascinating...every one will enjoy this one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adele | 4/17/2011

    " Another great read by Tami Hoag...one of those thrillers you can't put down! Sequel to Deeper Than the Dead... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 4/14/2011

    " Good "readable" book. Pretty predictable, but entertaining never the less. Reading a book with characters that you have met in previous novels is always like going to visit an old friend. That's how it is with this book. Altogether I would rate it 3.5 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 4/12/2011

    " A really good book! I recommend both in this series! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paula | 4/12/2011

    " Hadn't read Hoag in awhile. Same cruesome crime scenes. Unnecessary physical and psychological abuse to 4 year old. If the story is true, that's one thing but to invent it bothers me.

    I've outgrown her style so won't be reading her again. "
