Just a generally bad book. In her acknowledgements ,she appears not to care too much for the book and she's right. Perhaps she's a better critic than writer. Let me count the ways. She has no grasp of the bayou country or people. The dialogue drags. The character development is sophomoric and the constant introspection by all the characters is repetitive and boring. Frankly, I didn't care what happened to the boy. The last few chapters saved the book. I wouldn't recommend it to a friend.

With a masterful plot, unique characters and a pitch-perfect rural setting, there is nothing in The Boy that I didn’t love. A woman awakens to a ghastly sound coming from 7-year-old son’s room. Racing to his room, she finds him stabbed multiple time and the killer next turns the knife on her. Fearing for her safety, she runs bloody and wounded to her neighbors for help. Annie and Nick, married detectives in rural Partout Parish Louisiana, are assigned the case. If only they could stop the new grandstanding Sheriff, Kelvin Dutrow, from trying to “modernize” the detectives’ methods. When a second child disappears, panic runs high as the detectives race to see if the two cases are connected. The plotting is done with such precision that the reader sees none of the machinery and can sit back and enjoy the twist-filled ride. The rural Louisiana setting seems like a character all by itself and the characters in The Boy are one of its greatest charms. There is hot-headed Cajun Nick’s frequent switches into French patois. There is level-headed Annie who tries to reel her husband in. You rarely find a book with both good characters and fine plotting. I loved The Boy. 5 stars! Thanks to Dutton Books for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is my first book by Tami Hoag and I am already looking for the next. Her writing is descriptive, it took me from one surprise to another. The suspense kept me within it's hold and I finished the 400 plus page book in one day. Great writing with a difficult story.

This is the story of an investigation of the murder of a small boy in the swamps of Louisiana, and wow, what a story! This book kept me guessing the entire time! Did she do it? Did he do it? What about this guy? I just couldn't figure it out. And even when I brushed upon the idea, I was like, no, that can't be it. I know this author has been around for a while, but I have never picked up one of her books before this one. After finishing "The Boy," I immediately purchased four more books by her! Thank you #NetGalley for an early copy of #TheBoy!
