    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 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...

    Wow, a real Bayou thriller with a great married detective couple faced with solving the murder of a seven-year-old child. As the case progresses, there are missing children, bullying, child abuse, all leading to a complex case fraught with danger. Tami Hoag books never disappoint. This...

    I have to be honest, this bored me to sleep each time I picked it up - I was lucky if I managed 15 mins at a timre reading it, which for me clearly signifies it's not my cup of tea. So at 23%, I've given up. This was my first Tami Hoag, and I just couldn't bring myself to care ab...

    Tami Hoag has the astounding gift of creating a story with both devastating elements that also gives hope. This is one of those stories. ...

    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...

    I couldn?t finish this. I got about half way through and just couldn?t stand to read about any of these characters any longer. I?ve enjoyed some of her other books but I thought this one was a disaster. ...

    " 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...

    Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review. I can hardly wait! I love a good bayou mystery and Tami Hoag is really good at making the essence of that area come alive. The first Broussard and Fourcade book w...

    There is no sense writing down the synopsis of the book. I will say, if you love mysteries that keep you switching suspects chapter to chapter, if you love mysteries that you don't know who dun it until the very end, this is the book for you. I have read all of Tami Hoag's mysteries ov...

    The Boy by Tami Hoag was an exciting ride. From the first page I was thrown into a mystery so dark and related to the unthinkable brutal death of an innocent child. Who would do such a thing? The first thing that impressed me was the setting. French Cajun has always been of interest...

    I loved this book. It was so good. Tami Hoag is a hit or miss with me and this one was a big hit. It was a very unpredictable read. So many different suspects and never guessed the killer. Review soon! ...

    Okay, finally getting around to reviewing this. Bottom line, I loved it. I loved "A Thin Dark Line", but I think this one was even better. Tami is excellent at creating characters that you love. I've always believed that if you have great characters it can make up for a mediocre story,...

    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...

    Absolutely fantastic. A brilliant character-driven psychological crime thriller that is highly complex and so full of unexpected twists and turns, I couldn?t put it down. The sheer depth of how strongly I felt about the characters is indescribable and Hoag has done a sensational job ...

    There wasn?t any part of this story that wasn?t monstrous. This Southerm style thriller starts off with a flash of a bloodied young woman fleeing her home in the swamplands of Louisiana. She?s left her young son behind in the house off an isolated road after a surprise home...
