I have only just begun to read tami hoag's books, my first being " Lucky's lady". I must say that I prefer her crime thrillers to her romances. Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, at several times was I sure who the killer was until another twist caused me to change my mind. I liked Annie's spunk in the face of adversary including the fascinating Nick Fourcade!. An all round excellent read.

Format: Paperback
This was the first of Ms Hoag's books that I read, and I am still of the opinion that it is the best. Well defined characters and a romance that runs parallel to, but does not replace, the central plot, combined with a real feeling of atmosphere and suspense, this novel has everything. It is easier to read this having already read "Cry Wolf" as some elements of "A Thin Dark Line" follow from this novel, however it can be read alone with little difficulty. My only regret is that it finished too early! A must for crime fiction lovers, I would recommend it to anyone.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is about the... seventh (I think, I've lost count!) of Tami Hoag's novels that I have read in the last four months after discovering Still Waters. This novel is similar to some earlier novels (Cry Wolf especially, it contains some of the original characters and is set in the same area) but has a new, darker premise. A thriller down to the core, this novel approaches the tension in a small town experiencing a swathe of horrific crimes against women, and explores the relationship between the female lead (a cop) and her fellow male colleagues who are more than ready to use her as a scapegoat and floor-washer for everything.
The writing in the novel is smooth and extremely vivid - Ms Hoag's descriptions and character interplay are so thorough, detailed and lifelike that you wonder how she doesn't sit there with a thesaurus for days on end. Her character portrayals are well thought and commendable with each person reflected well through their mannerisms, language, personality and actions. The setting is again vivid and the wording delicious - it's a pleasure to read prose that is bursting with so much vigour and thought.
A wonderful novel with two hands that will grip you close and not let you go.

I found this easy going and captivating. You thought you knew who did it but you weren't sure. The characters are believable and it was a book which I found hard to put down. Very enjoyable as are all of Tami's books!

Format: Paperback
I had read a couple of Tami Hoag books before starting this one, and I have to admit to being hooked on her way of writing. The characters she develops are excellent and you really feel for them. This book not only contains a classic thriller but the love story between Annie and Fourcade had me turning the pages until the early hours of the morning. If you have not yet read any of Hoag's work I would suggest that you do, and at some point get round to reading this one. My only regret is that it finished!

Format: Paperback
This was the first book I have read by Tami Hoag and it was immensely enjoyable. Deputy Annie Broussard is a character with depth and emotion. The plot twists as a good whodunnit should. Several times I reached my conclusions before the lead character, but then I think that was deliberate plotting on the part of the author. I changed my mind about who killed Pam Bichon on at least 5 occasions. A satisfying read with believable characters who bounce off of one another.

Format: Paperback
I have not read Tami Hoag before, but this is a good introduction. She weaves an intricate web of a plot and leaves you guessing to virtually the last moment. The sub-plot is a predictable romance that blossoms against adversary. A second subplot is resolved too early in the book and there are a few loose ends (what happens to Stokes?). Still, a ripping yarn and I have begun another Hoag.

Format: Paperback
Really great story. Gripped me from start to finish. A bit graphic in places and the language was a bit blue at times, but still one of the best books I have ever read.
If you want a great thriller, read this.
