Cry Wolf by Tami Hoag

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?

Audio Rating (Not part of the overall Rating): 3.50

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!

    more often than not the narrator can make or break a book. I have thoroughly enjoyed Tammy Hoag’s books and would like suggestions for other authors and narrators. Thanks, Trish

  2. This is one of her books I never read…I think b/c I read the follow up book which told who the killer is/was in this story. However, at this point, I really do not remember so maybe I will give this a try.

    I really enjoy Tami Hoag. I didn’t read this one, but I read the sort of sequel to it. I would definitely read this one though especially because it takes place in New Orleans!

  4. I have been a blog flake all last week. I just spent ten minutes perusing Pinterest because of all your pins and then I realized I didn’t comment. Anyway, I like that this is a nail biter with lots of twists and turns. I need to shake it up and get more thrillers incorporated into next year. Any recommendations?

  5. I’m still on my first audiobook, and it took a while to get used to the narrator’s male voices. I think she did a great job – it’s just that I’ve never done different voices in my head when reading, so it is a very different experience!

  6. I really enjoy Tami’s stories, though I haven’t read this one. While it sucks you didn’t connect, it still sounds like a great story!
