Deeper than the Dead by Tami Hoag

In 1985, in Oak Knoll, California, four kids stumble across the body of a woman. It looks like the See-no-evil killer has struck in Oak Knoll. Detective Tony Mendez is assigned the case and his first steps are to interview the kids and ask FBI profiler Vince Leone to assist on the case. Vince is just getting back to work after being shot and this will be his first case back.

Their teacher, Anne Navarre, is very protective of the kids and is soon caught up in the investigation. And then another body shows up. But the killer didn't finish the job and she is still alive. Now it is a race to find the killer before their is another victim.

This was a great suspense book. I kept thinking I knew who the killer was but kept getting thwarted. I also loved that it was set in the 1980s before cell phones and the use of DNA. This is the first book in a trilogy.
