Loved the book it kept you in suspense right up until the very end
I have read scary books, sad books, books that make my hair stand on end! And then there's books by Tami Hoag! Start with ASHES TO ASHES, then finish it with this! Enough said! DAS in CNY
excellent reading material,all that tami hoag writes is worthy of your time, suspenseful and intriging.
She is a terrific writer who never fails to please.
from the jacket: It is the story of two hard-boiled cops who dare to cross the thin and dangerous line that separates good and evil as they risk their lives to investigate the suspicious death of one of their own.
another great suspense story from Tami Hoag
I loved this book! You will not be able to put it down!!!
Veteran cop Sam Kovac and partner Nikki Liska are investigating several things at once. An internal affairs cop dead of apparent suicide, a paraplegic cop dead of apparent suicide, a 20 year old murder where one of the current victims was a victim, a closed case of a homosexual cops brutal murder and the fun just keeps coming. Sam and Liska may be partners but they investigate different aspects of these cases and rarely actually work together which I found strange. I listened to the audiobook which was unabridged but it still seemed at times that key things were skipped. By this I mean, one or the other would find something out without the partner present, yet in the next scene, the other knew about it and they had never discussed the event. Sam and Liska apparently had conversations that weren't written as part of the novel. Really weird and disconcerting.
Tami Hoag doesn't skimp on the graphic details but to lessen the impact, she quickly follows up with smart aleck comments from both Kovac and Liska. She writes using a wonderful mix of humor and horror. Another wonderfully plotted mystery with twists, turns and surprises.
As always Tami Hoag keeps you wanting more
The Kovac/Liska series were some of my favorites. The characters were my favorite part of this book. The story was a bit off for me. But the detectives kept it going for me.
Sorry. The single word is written on a mirror. In front of it hangs a Minneapolis Internal Affairs cop. Was it suicide? Or a kinky act turned tragic?
Either way, it wasn't murder. At least not according to the powers that be. But veteran homicide detective Sam Kovac and his wisecracking, ambitious partner, Nikki Liska, think differently. The cloud of suspicion falls not only on the city's elite, but over the very heart of the police department. But even with their careers and their lives on the line, neither Kovac nor Liska will give up.
Sorry. The single word was written on the mirror. In front of it hung the body of Andy Fallon, a Minneapolis Internal Affairs cop. Was it suicide? Or a kinky act turned tragic? Either way, his death wasn't a crime. The investigation will be a formality, a duty that veteran homicide detective Sam Kovac isn't looking forward to. He doesn't want to spend any more time than he has to in the bleak, empty world of the victim's father, Iron Mike, Kovac's old mentor and a department legend. It's too much like looking into his own future. But Kovac has a sixth sense for crime, and it's burning. Together with his partner, the wisecracking, ambitious Nikki Liska, Kovac begins to dig at the too-neat edges of Fallon's death, uncovering one motive and one suspect after another. The shadows of suspicion fall deeply on not only the city's power elite, but into the very heart of the police department itself....
