One of the stars in this area of American suspense thrillers with strong characters, plenty of drama and page-turning addiction.  She’s very good.

Kill the Messenger Synopsis

At the end of long, hard day battling LA street traffic and a threatening storm, bike messenger Jace Damon is called on to make one last pick up at a sleazy defense attorney's office - Leonard Lowell. Jace is tired, stressed and needs to get home to check up on his little brother who he's single-handedly bringing up. Jace makes the pick up and sets out for the delivery address, which turns out to be a vacant lot. As if his day hadn't been tough enough, out of nowhere a car appears and tries to run him down. Jace is forced to flee down back alleys trying to escape the unknown assailant giving chase. Making his way back to Lowell's office he arrives to find it trashed, Lowell dead, and himself the prime suspect. Jace is forced to elude both the police and the men who want him dead whilst he attempts to find evidence with which to clear his name. He also has to try to keep Ty, his brother, safe from someone prepared to kill and out of foster care. Who killed Lennie and what did he know?

Kill the Messenger Press Reviews

"Tami Hoag is one of those writers whose thrillers don't have to keep telling you they're exciting; they just drag you along, willingly. Marvellous characters, an intelligent plot, with humour. Highly recommended." GUARDIAN

"A thriller writer who doesn't shirk on the twists and turns, Hoag is unswervingly competent and entertaining. Smart banter abounds. But despite all the hard-boiled business, Hoag has a woman's touch... here's a thriller with something for everyone." Andrea Henry - DAILY MIRROR

"If you like your thillers to be of the white knuckle variety -- prepare yourself for a tense time. Tami Hoag has excelled herself with the fast-paced and cleverly chilling Kill The Messenger. A fabulous thriller that has surprises right to the end."
