In DEAD SKY, Tami Hoag - the Sunday Times bestselling author of A THIN DARK LINE - returns with book three in the gripping Kovac & Liska detective series as they investigate a shocking family murder. It was a crime so brutal it changed the lives of even the most hardened homicide police officers.
The Haas family murders left a scar on the community nothing can erase, but convicting the alleged killer, Karl Dahl, is a start.
Only Judge Carey Moore seems to be standing in the way.
Her ruling that Dahl's prior criminal record is inadmissible as evidence against him raises a public outcry - and puts the judge in grave danger. When an unknown assailant attacks Carey Moore in a parking garage, Detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska are called in to investigate and keep the judge from further harm.
Then Karl Dahl escapes custody, and the judge is kidnapped from her home even as the police sit outside watching her house.
With no time to spare, the detectives are pulled down a strange dark trail of smoke and mirrors, where no one is who they seem, and everyone is guilty of something. Watch out for the next title in the Kovac and Liska crime thriller series As Detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska stand over the brutally disfigured remains of an adolescent girl in the early hours of New Year's Day, they suspect they've stumbled across the ninth victim of the notorious Doc Holiday.
A horribly sadistic killer who strikes during the holidays.
But with the girl's identity obscured by her injuries, they have little to go on.
Until Liska discovers that one of her son's friends - Gray - is missing...THE 9TH GIRL is the next gripping thriller in the series.
