Prior Bad Acts

Cover art: Prior Bad Acts

Published by Random House Audio on 2007-02-27
Audio CD: $14.99
FICTION / Thrillers

New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag returns with a thriller that begins with a shocking crime scene you’ll never forget and follows two relentless detectives on a manhunt that ends in a chilling confrontation with the essence of human evil.

It was a crime so brutal, it changed the lives of even the most hardened homicide cops. The Haas family murders left a scar on the community nothing can erase, but everyone agrees that convicting the killer, Karl Dahl, is a start. Only Judge Carey Moore seems to be standing in the way. Her ruling that Dahl’s prior criminal record is inadmissible raises a public outcry—and puts the judge in grave danger.

When an unknown assailant attacks Judge Moore in a parking garage, two of Minneapolis’s top cops are called upon to solve the crime and keep the judge from further harm. Detective Sam Kovac is as hard-boiled as they come, and his wisecracking partner, Nikki Liska, isn’t far behind. Neither one wants to be on this case, but when Karl Dahl escapes from custody, everything changes, and a seemingly straightforward case cartwheels out of control.

The stakes go even higher when the judge is kidnapped—snatched out of her own bed even as the police sit outside, watching her house. Now Kovac and Liska must navigate through a maze of suspects that includes the stepson of a murder victim, a husband with a secret life, and a rogue cop looking for revenge where the justice system failed.

With no time to spare, the detectives are pulled down a strange dark trail of smoke and mirrors, where no one is who they seem and everyone is guilty of Prior Bad Acts.

Tami Hoag initially came to the attention of readers as a romance novelist, but now fans of the suspense genre are becoming aware of her talent for writing taut thrillers. Her 2004 novel, KILL THE MESSENGER, combined identifiable characters with a genuine mystery and resulted in another personal best for her. Therefore, readers who jumped on the Hoag bandwagon will find much to love in PRIOR BAD ACTS, her latest work of fiction.

Those who have sampled Hoag's past work would do well to read PRIOR BAD ACTS. Her timing and pacing are flawless, and her constantly shifting perspectives heighten the atmosphere and keep the pages turning at a rapid pace. There are plenty of surprises here, and while Hoag uses sleight of hand and misdirection as plot devices, she always plays fairly so that readers aren't fooled any more than they want to be. PRIOR BAD ACTS is so well-written, however, that by book's end you won't care how wrong --- or right --- you are. Recommended.
