Book Review - The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag

 Needed a poolside read and Ray had just finished this one. Said it was good. I've read Tami Hoag before and she's a reliable author. The Bitter Season served the entertainment purpose well. Tough characters who are fleshed out, a twisty turning plot, surprises along the way - it's everything you need for a murder mystery. 

Detective Nikki Liska is restless in her new position in the cold case squad.She's bored with the unsolved murder of a decorated sex crimes detective. She misses her old partner, Kovac, who's dealing with a double homicide of a university professor and his wife. And meanwhile, Evi Burke has a  lovely life - except her past is stalking her. A danger is bent on destroying the perfect life she was never meant to have (cover blurb). 

Trails of two crimes twenty-five years apart twist, cross, and converge - Kovac and Liska race to find answers before a killer strikes again. 

p.26 He hated this time of year, this bitter season of raw cold and gray skies, knifing winds, and days that grew shorter and shorter.  

p. 78 Kovac: Never judge a family by their address or bank account. And never underestimate the power of the American public to shock and disappoint you. 

The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag does not disappoint in this genre. Thumbs up as a poolside read.
