I haven't read any Tami Hoag in a while so I jumped back in with this one. I made a good choice! Kill the Messenger is about some shady dealings, a little blackmail, a little murder, and a bike messenger who happened to be delivering a package at the wrong time and place.
The characters were really fleshed out well and ended up being characters that you cared about - at least ones that you wanted to see what happened to.
It's near impossible to not give away anything but I can say that the twist towards the end was a big surprise. Maybe I missed all the subtle clues but I don't think so. The actual end (the aftermath) was pretty hokey, I thought, and we could have lived without it.
Very good mystery!
