The bitter season
Another amazing read by this great author who just reels you in and keeps you guessing!!
The Bitter Season
Nail biting book. Hard to put down. Loved all the twists and turns trying to figure out the killers. Loved it!
When you can't imagine Liska & Kovac no longer being partners for it only to become another delicious twist that makes putting this book down even more impossible. I literally could not stop reading. Who needs sleep anyway!
Wonderful twists and turns!

The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag is the latest Kovac and Liska novel. Liska has transferred to the new Cold Case Unit (funded with a half a million-dollar grant) in Minneapolis, Minnesota to have regular hours and spend more time with her two sons. After going through hundreds of files the new unit meets to discuss their first case. Gene Grider (a retired detective) has come back to the cold case unit with an agenda. He wants the first case they work on to be the Ted Duffy case. Ted Duffy was an officer who was killed on the job twenty-five years previously. Grider is very determined (and a misogynist). The boss decides it will be the first case, but Liska will work it (a new set of eyes and since Grider did not solve it the first time around). Grider is not thrilled and goes out of his way to make things difficult for Nikki Liska.
Sam Kovac misses his old partner, Nikki Liska. Kovac is on his third partner in three months. His latest is Michael Taylor (a fledgling homicide detective). Kovac’s latest case is the death of Dr. Lucien Chamberlain and his wife. They were murdered (in a gruesome fashion) with a Japanese sword from Dr. Chamberlain’s collection. Who wanted to kill this professor and his wife?
Nikki Liska dives into her case. However, it seems like the Duffy family does not seem to really want the case solved. No one will answer questions. Liska is relentless in her pursuit of closing this case especially when she discovers that her case and Kovac’s are connected. Someone is not telling the truth. Liska and Kovac will have to work through the secrets and lies to reveal the killer.
The Bitter Season was just wonderful. I did not want to put this book down! There were so many wonderful twists and turns (I just loved it). The mystery was complicated and not easy to solve (but I did). I enjoyed how this mystery was revealed to the reader. There is an overabundance of foul language in the book (which I did not enjoy). The Bitter Season is well-written, fast paced, and has great characters. The Bitter Season can be read if you have not enjoyed the previous books in the series (I have not read other books in this series). I give The Bitter Season 5 out of 5 stars. I cannot wait for the next book in the Kovac and Liska series.
I received a complimentary copy of The Bitter Season from NetGalley in exchange for an honest evaluation of the book.

This book was bad
Another gem from Tami Hoag
As a big fan of Tami Hoag, I was really looking forward to this book and I wasn't disappointed. It's a great read, with surprising plot twists and great characters and dialogue
Could not put it down.
By Mike Pekar
One great novel. Full of twists and plots cleverly concealed until the end. A bit on the gory side for the squeamish. Good job Tami
