FICTION / Romance, FICTION / Thrillers
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.
