Detectives Kovac and Liska return in the latest psychological suspense novel from number one New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag. It was a shocking crime. 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? It was a shocking crime. But it wasn't the first. 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? Suspense fiction doesn't get smarter than this. Taut, tense and terrifying, Hoag weaves a relentlessly thrilling tale which twists and turns with every page.
About the Author
Tami Hoag is the #1 international bestselling author of more than thirty books published in more than thirty languages worldwide. Renowned for combining thrilling plots with character-driven psychological suspense, Hoag first hit the New York Times Bestseller list with NIGHT SINS, and each of her books since has been a bestseller. She leads a double life in Palm Beach County, Florida where she is also known as a top competitive equestrian in the Olympic discipline of dressage. A woman of eclectic tastes, to say the least, Tami was recently asked to list seven things people may not know about about her: 1. I was once offered a job by a private investigator. 2. I have a license to carry concealed weapon, but never do. I took the course for research purposes. 3. My high school guidance counselor encouraged me to become an actress, but I thought that was too impractical (Of course, there's nothing practical about being a writer, either, but at least I'm not obligated to look good on a daily basis.) 4. I used to sing at weddings. 5. While I have no intention of ever getting married again, I love watching Say Yes To The Dress 6. I have legitimate knockout power in my right hand, and I'm not afraid to use it. 7. When I'm stressed out, all tech devices around me go haywire. I've stopped watches, and fried hard drives. I once killed a television in a store display by merely touching it. I'm better off sticking to life's simple pleasures--like books!

A masterful tale of two colliding cases that become one tightly coiled plot, THE BITTER SEASON is Tami Hoag at her down and dirty best. Authentic, dark and intense, this is a portrait of flawed characters on both sides of the law that will surprise you and make you laugh as you double-lock your doors. TESS GERRITSEN 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. MARK EDWARDS, No.1 Kindle bestseller well-handled and satisfyingly tense THE INDEPENDENT Gritty, sinister and gory, with wonderfully world-weary detectives, and a craftily constructed plot. -- Deirdre O' Brien SUNDAY MIRROR
