Short and unpronouncable ... and proud of it!!!

I had read Cry Wolf about a year ago and didn't like it that much. Like some people here mentioned already, the mystery seemed to come in second place in the book. Now I picked up Ashes to Ashes which seemed very promising and it was indeed worth it. The police investigation is well shown, with a surprising turn at the end. I'm certainly gonna look for more of Hoag's books now.

I'm reading Guilty as Sin now, and to be honest, I've been doing so for a while already. It seemed like a good book at first, but it reads sooo slowly. I'm planning on finishing it for sure, but it's not going smoothly ...

Just finished "Dust to Dust," and the story and characters definitely deliver. Great plot, keeps you guessing until the end. Kovac and Liska are perfectly matched homicide investigators.

Love the fact that Hoag's women are always depicted as having guts and character, a match for any man.

Highly recommend if you haven't read. I want to read "Ashes to Ashes" now.

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

"Dark Horse", August 2002. I hear this one is written a little differently from Hoag's others.

Is there a sequel to A Thin Dark Line by Tami Hoag? Find I'm not satisfied with the outcome of Annie and Nick!

Kill the Messenger

Bestselling suspense master Tami Hoag, the “queen of the crime story” (New York Post) delivers her most riveting thriller yet! With more twists and turns than an out-of-control roller coaster, this fast-paced mystery moves from the gritty streets of Los Angeles to its most protected enclaves to the tarnished glitter of Hollywood, as a killer stalks his prey—an innocent teenager.

Unruly Reviewer.

When we last visited the US, my wife insisted we spend a night in the Lousisiana town where Tami Hoag set one of her novels. Eager to see what was so inspirational, I recently cracked the covers of Kill the Messenger.

An out-of-control roller coaster? More like one of those soggy cardboard coasters that is placed under drinks. A stiff glass of whiskey is the only way to keep yourself entertained when plowing through those 432 bland pages.

Perhaps Tami Hoag's earlier novels had more originality. There must have been some spark of life to them to have won her so many fans. This latest, Kill the Messenger, did not impress me at any rate. A full review can be found at

The first Tami Hoag novel I read was "Guilty as Sin". I had no idea it was the second part in a series until after I was done. Since then, I've read many of Ms.Hoag's novels. My ultimate favorite is "Still Waters" it has everything. Suspence, laughter and enough grown and sexy tension to appeal to anyone - even my boyfriend read it!! It is one of my top favorite novels no matter the author. I wish it could've been a series!

I just finished reading Night Sins. I thought this was a great book, (except there was a bit too much explict sex) until I came to the last page. I felt the author just got tired of writing, and couldn't come up with any way to explain some details, so she just stopped! I feel like I've been "had." Several hours of my life were spent reading this book, and expecting the mystery to be solved at the end. I mean, this IS fiction. What on earth was Hoag thinking to just stop with so much left unexplained??

Marsha, the story continues in a second book, "Guilty as Sin" which may help tie up some of the loose ends for you.
