Overview

Prior Bad Acts (Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska Series #3) by Tami Hoag, Holter Graham

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.

I started reading her books from the newest going back and I am so hooked! I feel the newer ones are better but the twists and turns as well as the incredible ability to put the reader into the story continue throughout! Hoag is my favorite right now, I can't get enough of these stories!

This is by far the best book from Hoag. The complex structure of charactors, scenes, plots were well converted into something really readable, enjoyable and educating.You don't have to be a layer to love this book.It will open your eyes up and you can never close them down.

This is the best courtroom thriller so far this year. I consider this novel Tami Hoag's redemption for Kill the Messenger. The characters are great, the story is edge of your seat entertainment, and the ending is superb. This is a must buy!

Read this book in two days. Great story line, great character development. No sex, yes some swearing but it fit with the story line. There were no pages and pages of mindless filler pages. She wrote over 500 pages of relevant story!! Way to go Tami

Tami Hoag has created two interesting characters – Kovac and Liska. Kovac is a hard older – classical fictional male detective. While Liska is a younger female decective, who is also somewhat hardened by her experience. The interplay with these two is somewhat stereotypical. Both Prior Bad Acts and Dust to Dust are very enjoyable reads. I have recommended these to other I know who like the genre.

This was my first time reading this author and I enjoyed the book very much. I was able to keep track of the characters and follow the plot eventhough I sometimes had to put it away for a few days. There was plenty of suspense and twists and turns to keep me coming back.
