Overview

Two hard-boiled cops dare 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.

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 accident?

Together with his partner, the wise cracking, ambitious Nikki Liska, Sam Kovac digs at the too-neat edges of Fallon's death, uncovering one motive and one suspect after another. The shadows of suspicion fall not only on the city's power elite, but into the very heart of the police department.

Unfortunately, neither Kovac nor Liska believes Fallon died by his own hand -- accidentally or otherwise. As the case unfolds, it seems more and more likely that his death is somehow tied to his work. The question is whether he was killed for a case two months old -- the murder of a gay patrol officer -- or a case twenty years closed -- the one that made Fallon's father a paraplegic.

As Kovac and Liska dig deeper, they find their careers and lives on the line, because a killer wants the truth left dead and buried. Ashes to Ashes. Dusts to Dust.

This was my first Tami Hoag book. It was a real "page turner". Kept me guessing right up to the end. I listened to it twice.

Great book!

Hoag, Tami

Tami Hoag was born Tami Mikkelson on the 20th of January 1959 in Minnesota. The town she lived in was very small, and there were few children her own age around her, prompting her to develop an active imagination and create stories from a young age. She completed high school and married her high school boyfriend, Daniel Hoag, in 1977.

Hoag never completed a level of schooling higher than high school, as she and her husband moved to a small town without easy college access. She spent the ten years working a variety of jobs, such as photographer’s assistant, showhorse trainer, typist, and salesperson. In 1988 she had her first publication; a romance in the Bantam Books Loveswept Line. After much success in the romance genre she switched to thrillers, where she was equally, if not more, successful and hit the New York Times Bestseller list thirteen consecutive times.

Hoag belongs to a group of women who all made the switch from romance to thriller at roughly the same time; called the “Divas”, they provide support and encouragement to each other.

Hoag currently lives in Virginia.
