by Tami Hoag

Dutton | November 27, 2013 | Hardcover

Down The Darkest Road is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.

Once upon a time I had the perfect family. I had the perfect husband. I had the perfect children. I had the perfect life in the perfect home. And then, as in all fairy tales, evil came into our lives and destroyed us.

Four years after the unsolved disappearance of her sixteen-year-old daughter, Lauren Lawton is the only one still chasing the ghosts of her perfect Santa Barbara life. The world has given her daughter up for dead. Her husband ended his own life in the aftermath. Even Lauren''s younger daughter is desperate to find what''s left of the childhood she hasn''t been allowed to have.

Lauren knows exactly who took her oldest child, but there is not a shred of evidence against the man. Even as he stalks her family, Lauren is powerless to stop him. The Santa Barbara police are handcuffed by the very laws they are sworn to uphold. Looking for a fresh start in a town with no memories, Lauren and her younger daughter, Leah, move to idyllic Oak Knoll. But when Lauren''s suspect turns up in the same city, it feels to all the world that history is about to repeat itself. Leah Lawton will soon turn sixteen, and Oak Knoll has a cunning predator on the hunt.

Sheriff''s detective Tony Mendez and his team begin to close in on the suspected killer, desperate to keep the young women of their picturesque town safe. But as the investigators sift through the murky circumstances of an increasingly disturbing case, a stunning question changes everything they thought they knew. In Down the Darkest Road, #1 New York Times bestseller Tami Hoag proves again why she is one of the world''s most beloved storytellers.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't put this down This was such a great book I couldn't put it down.Started out a bit slowly but once it got going, just had to keep reading. Sat up half the night. the story of a mother whose eldest daughter is stolen from her then the perp tries to steal the second one and no one will believe her. As a mother, this would be the absolute worst nightmare.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Keeper Tami continued on from the Secrets to the Grave book, of the characterz Tony Menez and Anne Leone. If you haven't read the first book, that is no problem. The story line was very good, kept you interested. Also a nice feature was the story was based from the 1990's, and you forget how much technology has come. There was a bit of a twist to the story I didn't see coming and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you are a fan of Tami's you will continue to be.
