Half a murder victim dredged up from a crocodile infested canal in Florida opens this compelling murder mystery. She is found by her friend Elena, a psychologically scared ex-policewoman, who is driven to uncover the secrets that lead her to a grisly fate. In doing so Elena has to revisit areas of her life she felt she had closed off and puts herself back in the firing line. Tami Hoag always writes such convincing characters and pacy plots but I think this is her best novel to date, and if you have yet to try her this is a great place to start. Please note that The Alibi Man is not published until 19 July 2007 but you can download and read an extract now.

Synopsis

The Alibi Man by Tami Hoag

She was a vision. She was a siren. She was a nightmare. She was dead. Now he needed her to disappear. And he knew just how to make it happen.

The Palm Beach elite go to great lengths to protect their own and their own no longer includes Elena Estes. Once a child of wealth and privilege, Elena turned her back on that life. Betrayed and disillusioned by those closest to her, she chose the life of an undercover cop, the hunt for justice her own personal passion. Then a tragic, haunting mistake ended her career. Now Elena exists on the fringes of her old life. But a shocking event is about to draw her back into the painful vortex she's fought so hard to leave behind.

First she finds the body a young woman used, murdered, and dumped in a canal. Not just a victim, but a friend. As Elena delves into her dead friend's secret life, she discovers ties not only to the Russian mob but also to a group of powerful and wealthy Palm Beach bad boys known for giving each other alibis to cover a multitude of sins. A group that includes a man Elena once knew very well her former fiancé, Bennett Walker, a man she knows has already escaped justice at least once in his life.

Finding her friend's killer will put Elena at odds with her old life, with her new lover, and with herself. But she is determined to reveal the truth a truth that will shock Palm Beach society to its core, and could very well get her killed.
