Ashes to Ashes

If you love fantastic thrillers, you'll enjoy this one from Tami Hoag. In Ashes to Ashes, the first book in the Kovac/Liska series, Kate Conlan was a former FBI Agent and now a victim advocate for court in Minnesota. She had been introduced on a new case, when the only victim who witnessed the Cremator in action.  With two dead prostitutes and one millionaire's daughter who saw it, she talked to Angie DeMarco. John Quinn from the FBI resurfaced into her life after five years, when she was now divorced and lost her daughter to illness. Now she had to battle her emotions from the past and focused on the case before. Later on, the tables were turned, when puzzling new evidence was into play, and the truth of the role of her witness also came into play, when she realized how the killer was on to her and wanted her dead. This would keep you guessing right to the end.

This was a great introductin to Kovac and Liska. I did feel worried about Kate, Angie, and Peter Boudrant's daughter. I became interested, when John came back into Kate's life.  I loved the backdrop of Minnesota for the series. The Cremator gave me the creeps and the chills. This would make you turn you head and shake it in disbelief. Great drama, plenty of creepy and eerie suspense, nice action in a great flowing pace.

Ready for a great read? Enjoy a copy this weekend!
