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.

Tami Hoag is the #1 international bestselling author of thirty books. Renowned for combining thrilling plots with character-driven suspense, Hoag first hit the New York Times bestseller list with Night Sins, and each of her books since has been a bestseller. She lives in Florida.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thriller I really, really liked this one. The drama, the intrigue, the cat & mouseness of it... it just caught me, hook, line and sinker, and I could not put it down. It took me about 2 days to finish it, and I was disappointed when it was over. Not because of how it ended, but just the fact that it was over.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good mystery Not as good as the other two in this arc, it finishes the trilogy. Lacks the intricate plotting and the presence of Vince Leone who never really shows up except as a cameo - disappointing as I really enjoy his character.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Down the Darkest Road Excellent book, full of suspense and terror. A good understanding of a mother's love and the anguish of loosing a child. This book kept me reading steadily, fully expecting more atrocities to befall this family. Although some questions go unanswered this was a great read and highly recommended.

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.
