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.
well-handled and satisfyingly tense
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.
Gritty, sinister and gory, with wonderfully world-weary detectives, and a craftily constructed plot.
