    The Boy is the very first book I've read by Tamo Hoag, but I've been wanting to read her books for a while now. I was pleased to find out that I actually own the first book in this series, A Thin Dark Line, and I hope to find to read it someday. The Boy is the tragic story about a ...

    The 2-star rating is more about how little I personally appreciated this book then the reflection on its writing or its storytelling. Honestly, this was a downer story, making me feel gloomy all through the book. What it boils down to is young teenagers being bullied and being misunder...

    The latest Tami Hoag mystery featuring Nick Fourcade and Annie Broussard (two married detectives in Louisiana and serving in a small parish) is really quite a story. It starts with the injured mother, Genevieve Gauthier, running down the rural road where she lives for help, pounding on...

    There is an old saying: ?Two can keep a secret, if one of them is dead.? Tami Hoag?s The Boy is a dark, gritty mystery that highlights how keeping a secret often involves making sure that everyone else who knows it is, indeed, dead. This is Hoag?s second book featuring Annie...

    The Boy, a mystery/suspense novel, is the second in the Broussard and Fourcade series by author Tami Hoag. As a rule, I tend to shy away from books that are part of a same-character series, as I always feel a step behind if I pick up in the middle. Here, however, Hoag has written a hau...

    3.5 stars A panic-stricken woman runs in the dead of night, battered and bloodied, desperate to find help. . . The Boy is the second book in the Brousssard and Fourcade series but worked very well as a stand-alone novel for me. Nick Fourcade and his wife, Annie Broussard are both...

    Tami Hoag has been a favorite author of mine for so long. Her mystery thrillers are always fast paced, engaging, and captivating and The Boy is no different. Detective Nick Fourcade is called in to the devastating crime scene where a young boy was murdered, where his mother narrowly es...

    I credit Tami Hoag with getting my interested in the romance genre. Her romantic suspense novels got me into the genre during high school, and A Thin Dark Line was one of my favourites. I was completely surprised to see the author return to these characters so long after the first book...

    I have never read Tami Hoag before, and boy was that a mistake! I love her Karin Slaughter-feeling that she writes with. I'm generally not one for "detective novels", but some do get me, and this one just jumps out and grabs you on every single page. Her character development is fa...

    I have read Tami Hoag's work for many years and always enjoyed them. Her latest...The Boy was no exception. This author has the ability to take the reader out of their favorite armchair and place them right into the story. Her two lead characters of Nick and Annie are very strong and e...

    3.5 stars Tami Hoag's The Boy is the second in a series featuring Nick Fourcade and Annie Broussard. I haven't read the first in the series, but it wasn't necessary as the book works as a standalone. A murdered child, a severely injured and grieving mother, a missing twelve-yea...

    " If one of the people in this night's story had turned left instead of right at some point in time, their paths might never have crossed, and KJ and Genevieve Gauthier would be home, asleep, and in safe beds." Ain't that the almighty truth? When we are at the receiving end of someo...

    This is NOT an easy story. It deals with the dark side of human nature and how the face a person shows the public does not always match the one behind closed doors. Murder, abuse, rape, assault, abuse of power, attempted suicide, attempted murder, skeevy landlords and their hidden came...

    Hoag at her best. This is a super mystery. Fourcade and Broussard return, but The Boy can certainly be read as a stand alone. Annie and Nick are awoken in the middle of the night to be called to a homicide. It is the brutal stabbing of a young boy--KJ Gauthier. His mother, Genevieve...

    I wasn't sure I was enjoying this book, but towards the end it was riveting and shocking. I couldn't put it down. Apparently, it's the second book in the Broussard and Fourcade series. Somehow I missed the first book, A Thin Dark Line. A boy is the victim of a grisly murder. His mothe...
