  • do you know how long it takes to listen to audio books this one is eleven hours and thirty nine minutes and i am not one of you cyborg kids who have all manner of machines strapped to you and dangling off of your tool belts like a williamsburg batman i can only listen to this in my house, doing the dishes or cooking etc but jesus eleven hours of this guy s voice as he raises the pitch to make lady voices or baby talks through a five year old character or slaps this comical minnesotan accent on f [...]


  • Making my way through the Kovac and Liska series I like the series and I like the characters of Kovac and Liska and their immediate team I really enjoyed this suspense murder maybe one of my favorites in the series.When a judge makes an unpopular decision on the admission of prior bad acts, she is attacked and her life is endangered A little digging into who may have attacked her leads to multiple options Some people don t look as innocent as they should I think I would have liked it if I could [...]


  • So far out of the Kovak and Liska series, this has been my favorite Tami Hoag is fast becoming one of my favorite authors for this year Her skills with writing mystery are phenomenal along with her characters She makes them so realistic and believable There were so many great elements included in this book Those that I always look for in a good suspense mystery I found it hard to put it down It was such a fluid read and easy to follow even with multiple mysteries running simultaneously Another e [...]


  • Rating 4.5This book was not perfect, but I think this was Hoag s best book that I ve read so far I enjoyed it enough to keep it I even liked the endgame romance at the end view spoiler Kovac and the judge getting together, was really cute, and I ship it hide spoiler I spent most of the book wondering who was the Big Baddie , and it was a lot complicated than just one I was actually surprised one of them was not as involved as I thought view spoiler I thought the judge s husband was guilty than [...]



  • PRIOR BAD ACTS Police Proc Minneapolis, MN Cont VGHoag, Tami 3rd in seriesBantam, 2006 Amer Hardcover When Judge Carey Moore refuses to allow the prior bad acts of Karl Dahl, accused of committing the brutal murder of a mother and two young children, she is vilified by the police and newspapers as being soft on killers But someone is even angry and severely beats her and later threatens her Detective Sam Kovac is assigned to the case along with his partner Nikki Liska They, too, think the judge [...]


  • This was a great book The third installment of the Kovac Liska series, this has been the best one so far A gripping storyline, the continued friendship work partners of Kovac and Liska, and a few new characters to add to the mix I m looking forward the next one in the series A fine thriller and I definitely recommend this series.


  • I picked up this book at a library sale Now when I added it to do my review, I find out that it is the third in a series, and I hate to read books out of order, but I think I can manage this one.I have read a few Tami Hoag books before and I have always enjoyed the way she writes and how she spins a story.This was amazing, it was a well written story with lots of twists and turns that kept you guessing the whole time The murders were intense and might be hard to handle for some, but the details [...]


  • Last time I read a Tami Hoag novel, I remember feeling a bit flat the book in question, Kill the Messenger, hadn t done much for me Now, though, I ve finally gotten around to reading her paperback from last year Prior Bad Acts and I m pleased to report that Ms Hoag definitely still has it in her.This book goes back to revisit a couple of characters she s written about before Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska, the cops previously appearing in Dust to Dust I ve seen the formula of a pair of mixed gender c [...]


  • Five years ago I read this book for the first time, and since I was in a Kovac Liska mood, a team of detectives I really like, I decided to re read Prior Bad Acts Well, it didn t impress as much this time around, which in itself is a normal phenomenon re reading an action packed thriller I ve come to the conclusion that what I mostly dislike in murder mysteries these days is the abundance of violent acts, and the long pages of being inside a killer s mind I m so NOT interested in being inside a [...]


  • PRIOR BAD ACTS, the 3rd book in the Sam Kovak Nikki Liska series and opens with the horrific murder of a mother and her two foster children.Detective Sam Kovac, and his partner Nikki Liska are pulled into a case where nothing seems to be what you think A cast of interesting and realistic characters that you engage with, in particular Kovak Liska I enjoy the connection between the two.A well written, fast paced plot that includes kidnapping, murder, torture, secrets, rogue cops, pornography and a [...]


  • Tami Hoag is one of those authors who, every time I read one of her books, I wonder why I don t read her often And I m still wondering that Prior Bad Acts is probably, by a hair, my least favorite of the Hoag novels I ve read, yet it s still pretty damn fine In particular, I liked the way that she turned the tables on my false preconceptions as to the point she was trying to make.All the evidence points toward Karl Dahl as the perpetrator of the horrific torture murder of a mother and her two y [...]


  • 4.5 stars Of all the Kovac Liska series this has been my favorite It has all the elements of a good mystery suspense thriller The opening scene is gruesome, a triple homicide of a foster mother and 2 small children, who died horrible deaths Not overly detailed in graphics, but you get it The presumed killer had been seen at their house the day of the murders with a necklace belonging to the woman and has been taken into custody The presiding Judge Carey Moore, a mother herself, rules that the pr [...]


  • I really enjoyed this bookTami Hoag is fast becoming one of my favorite authors The story moved along quickly, keeping the reader guessing until the end If you like the crime genre, this is for you


  • I really liked this book, and it was a good ending for the Kovac Liska series As with the previous books, I like the multiple character narration, and it lends itself naturally to good suspense building as it cuts away from a suspenseful point in one character s storyline to the simultaneous I assume story of someone else in the book There were a few loose threads that made me give this a 3 star rating 1 Who was the very first character in the book that found the bodies I would have liked to hav [...]


  • Sexy as hell Just before Tami Hoag left romantic suspense behind and started writing mainstream thrillers, I read Prior Bad Acts and thought YES, FIST PUMP, MORE LIKE THIS PLEASE The romance isn t precisely the centerpiece of the story, but it s easily the most memorable aspect of the book Heroine is a judge who has let a killer go on a technicality, because unfortunately that s her job Hero is one of several cops who hate her for it When the sexy and married judge is attacked, and the sexy angr [...]


  • In the 3rd installment of Tami Hoag s Kovac Liska thriller series, Prior Bad Acts, this duo went out to solve another disturbing case Everyone agreed that convincting Carl Dahl was a start, when he committed the crime of killing the Haas family Only Judge Carey Moore stood in the way and put her in grave danger When someone attacked her in a parking lot, that s when Kovac and Liska were on the scene to protect her from further harm, when no one wanted to be on this disturbing case But when Dahl [...]


  • I got into this book quickly and a day later it was finished and the rest of her books are added to my to read list.A judge rightly rules that a criminals past behaviour can t have any bearing on his current case but others disagree and she is attacked as she leaves the court At the same time, the man she was ruling on, escapes and a police officer goes rogue Nothing is as it appears and then under police noses, the judge vanishes I enjoyed seeing the loose ends coming together at the end and ye [...]


  • Oh my gosh Talk about a fast paced, well written novel I am not a murder mystery kinda girl my neighbor brought a stack of books over for me to devour but this one was fabulous if you can look past some of the depraved parts The characters are well developed and have such personality that if I could, I d hang out with them.


  • Sem d vida que um dos melhores livros da Tami Hoag A escrita, a hist ria, as personagens tudo ficou lindamente perfeito n o houve Nada que n o tenha gostado Reviravoltas surpreendentes, que nos fazem falar enquanto lemos.


  • Long drawn out story, not suspenseful, and a bit repetitive Sam Kovac shows an emotional side of his character at times I felt he was out of control.




  • Judge Carey Moore has ruled that the previous activity of Karl Dahl cannot be submitted to help convict Karl of the murder of 2 children and a woman After a prison fight, Karl is free Meanwhile someone has attacked Carey in the parking lot and she is receiving threatening calls Is it Karl Or detective Stan Dempsey who originally investigated the case and has gone crazy that Karl has not been prosecuted Or is it the husband of the murdered wife and step children, also angry because Karl has not b [...]


  • I know I ve read this author before, and I ve even listened to one of the series on tape but I didn t love this one as much Kovac and Liska are the detectives assigned the case of a judge who was assaulted after a controversial ruling The ruling is in favor of a man who is being tried for the torture and murder of a mother and 2 children Public opinion has already found the man guilty I didn t love the character of the judge and the book felt a little like the detective books that also have a ro [...]


  • A Sam Kovac Nikki Liska detective series, 3A teenage foster kid is mad over of his costodial parent s plan to adopt two little kids Cop Stan Demsey is tramatized by the tortue murder of this mom her 2 foster kids Drifter Karl is blamed his prior bad acts are ruled inadmissible He s a killer, just not the killer of this foster family.Mostly an OK story, but is somewhat plodding at times.


  • Five stars for this book is a must Tami Hoag didn t fail writing this book It got my attention right from the start and with all the twists and turns throughout the novel, it kept me entranced I did not see the end coming at all For some reason, I didn t read this series in order I still was able to follow each book through without difficulty.


  • 3 1 2 Stars There was a lot about this novel in the series that felt like it was by rote conversations and inner thoughts that felt stiff action that seemed implausible and twists that seemed unrealistic Yet, I like the characters the setting and nuances and for the most part, the writing I ll keep reading.


  • I enjoy the story line and it s well written The characters are fantastic Liska is my favorite book character However, I just couldn t get into it I can t read a book that I can put down and for that reason, I didn t finish this one.


  • ExcellentHigh level of suspense with a hint of an underlying budding romance Third in series, yet completely different I tire of series where books sound the same with different names.
