Wow what a book! Tami Hoag uses misdirection upon misdirection upon misdirection to confuse the shit out of you. Man, the story leads you in one direction, to one killer and then WHAM it's not him! And then there's another likely suspect and it's not him. again and again and again. I just love it. A Thin Dark Line really keeps you guessing right up until the final chapter. Again just WOW!

Deputy Annie Broussard gets entangled in the murder of Pam Bission since she is the one who found the body. Detective Nick Fourcade is prime on the case and goes over the line forcing his suspension. Annie is suspicious of the cop in charge and begins her own investigation. The interplay between Annie and Nick is fabulous and edgy as hell. Nick is a little crazy (well maybe a lot) and Annie is reluctant to get involved with him even if it is only for his investigation notes. I really liked Nick's edginess though it really made his job difficult. It did provide some great comic relief moments though.

A great story of murder, stalking, police brutality, vigilantism, conspiracy, harrassment and rape. This story had everything cops, lawyers, district attorneys, victims, crazy relatives and many many suspects. It's a book that you wanted to end just to find out who did it but you didn't want it to end because it was so exciting. Tami Hoag doesn't write romance novels but there is always some small element of romance included. Don't look for a HEA from Ms. Hoag but you'll definitely enjoy the story with or without it.
