The 9th Girl (Kovac and Liska #4)

The 9th Girl (Kovac and Liska #4)The 9th Girl by Tami Hoag
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I would give this another star, but I couldn't stand the language.  I can not understand why authors continue to insult their readers with it.  It is bad enough in a book, but when it's an audiobook it sounds like someone sitting right next to you saying it right in your ear.  Couldn't a professional author come up with some more useful adjectives?

The plot itself is not bad.  There's a serial killer on the loose and seems to fit the body of a teenage girl, but there is so much going on in her home and school that doesn't seem to fit.  The detectives come to realize that there are differences and delve deeper.  That is when they find that one of the young girl's friends is Detective Liska's son and he is behaving very strangely.  There are a lot of suspects, but none of it makes sense.
