At a Glance
Tami Hoag has several mystery and thriller series under her belt, with the most popular, in my opinion, being Kovac and Liska, involving detective Sam Kovac and his partner, Nikki Liska.
The first book in this series, Ashes to Ashes, was also my introduction to this amazing author. Currently the Kovac and Liska series includes five books, with a sixth one hopefully coming out soon.
So far Tami Hoag has written over thirty books which have been translated in over thirty languages over the years.
