About the Book: The scream heard by no one is the deadliest.
In the rural parishes of Louisiana’s French Triangle, young women are disappearing one by one, only to turn up on the banks of the bayou, strangled and cast aside where they are sure to be found. But there is one trophy the killer prizes above all others, one woman who must be silenced forever….
Attorney Laurel Chandler did not come back to Bayou Breaux to seek justice. That once-burning obsession had destroyed her credibility, her career, her marriage—and nearly her sanity. But when a ruthless predator strikes too close to home, she’s lured into a perverse game from which there may be no escape. Once before, Laurel’s cries against a monstrous evil went unanswered. Who will listen now?

Quick Thoughts: Tami Hoag is an excellent thriller writer and Cry Wolf definitely delivered on story. It was a twisty, turny, nail-biter that kept you guessing for a very long time. I didn’t really connect with any of the characters so that is really the only drawback. That is often personal between the reader and the book so please keep that in mind. The setting and atmosphere were awesome. Overall this was a pretty darn good read!
Audio Thoughts: Narrated by Joyce Bean, I thought she did a good job on pacing and delivering a solid performance. I didn’t connect with her male voices at all but I think that might have been due to the characters (somewhat). I have heard other books by Joyce and enjoyed them. She is a good narrator.
Final Thought: Fans of Tami Hoag will not want to miss Cry Wolf!
In her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children both named after book characters: Tonks a beautiful Lab/Pyr mix and Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix.She also spends times with friends, family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
