The Bitter Season

The Bitter Season

In THE BITTER SEASON, Tami Hoag – the Sunday Times bestselling author of A THIN DARK LINE – returns with book six in the gripping Kovac & Liska detective series. ‘As good as Michael Connelly or Karin Slaughter at their best.’ Mark Edwards, No. 1 Kindle bestseller

A middle-aged couple – hacked to death in their own home – with a samurai sword. Normal people. Who were they? And why were they targeted?

Twenty years ago a policeman was murdered in his own back garden and the killer was never caught.
One woman might link these mysteries. But she is being watched. Can Detectives Nikki Liska and Sam Kovac find her before it is too late?

A page-turning thriller packed with suspense. If you like Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Karen Rose you will love Tami Hoag.

TESS GERRITSEN
well-handled and satisfyingly tense
THE INDEPENDENT
A riveting crime novel with crackling dialogue and brilliant characterisation, shot through with dark humour. Budding crime writers should be given this novel as an example of how to do it. As good as Michael Connelly or Karin Slaughter at their best.
