Only 8 left in stock (more on the way).

Kill the Messenger Tami Hoag. Messenger to messenger. They were both connections between people who didn’t give a rat’s ass who they were unless they were late with a delivery. Rush hour at four hours and counting. Every Angelino busting it to get home before the heavens opened up like a bursting bladder and the rains came in a gush. The city had been pressed down beneath the weight of an anvil sky all day. Endless, ominous twilight in the concrete canyons between the downtown skyscrapers. The air heavy with expectation. The building was in sight.

STORY BRIEF:
Jace is a bike messenger, about 19 years old. He has been taking care of his younger brother Tyler for six years, ever since his mother died. Jace and Tyler live in a room with the Chen family in Chinatown. They fear the police and social services because they don't want to be separated into foster homes. At the end of a long day, Jace has one last messenger run. He picks up an envelope from sleazy attorney Lenny. When he gets to the delivery location, someone tries to run him over and shoot him, but Jace gets away. Jace then learns that Lenny was killed shortly after Jace saw him. The murder weapon was an item Jace had touched. Jace is on the run and hiding from the murderer and the police. Parker is the detective on the case. Parker is suspicious when politically connected detectives from another jurisdiction want to take over the case.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
Jace is the star. It feels like a roller coaster ride watching Jace speed through traffic on his bike, survive crashes, outrun the bad guys and stay alive due to amazing survival instincts. He reminds me of a rodent scurrying around back alleys and buildings that no one can catch. This was a good story, excellent writing. I didn't want to stop reading it. It has a happy ending. I'm a lover of romance novels and rarely read straight mysteries, which is what this is, but I enjoyed it. My only complaint was wanting more details at the end about what happened to certain people, see Spoilers below.

I don't want to be misleading, so I want to point out that the Jace story (roller coaster ride) takes up less than half of the time. The other half of the time is with Parker the detective, investigating and slowly unraveling the mystery, which was more like a typical investigation story. The best parts of the book were about Jace and his brother Tyler.

There were some intelligent and thought provoking comments that I marked and continued to think about after the story. Pages 49 and 75 talk about keeping one's private life secret. Knowledge is power and others will spin it around and use it against you. Page 93: she enjoyed being angry. Anger was the fuel for her energy making her feel bigger and stronger. Page 146: why men kill and why women kill.

DATA:
Story length: 419 pages. Swearing language: strong. No sexual language or content. Setting: current day Los Angeles, California. Copyright: 2004. Genre: mystery suspense.

CAUTION MINOR SPOILERS:
I wanted more details at the end of the book. I was confused and wanted to know what Parker was going to do. He was suspended for 30 days and yet he said he quit. I also wanted to see some justice and pain for the DA and Kyle. I wasn't sure what was going to happen to them. The author was vague. Also, I was unclear about Kyle shooting a woman earlier, it may have been accidental. I wanted to know more.

Being a bicycle messenger is even normally a hair-raising experience, but little did nineteen year old Jace Damon realize just how dangerous his life was to become when he picked up a package from the bottom-feeding lawyer Lenny Lowell after normal working hours on a rainy night. In attempting to deliver the package, he finds himself being pursued with deadly intent and barely manages to escape with his bike wrecked and himself injured. When he learns that Lowell is dead, he previous efforts to create a hidden existence in Chinatown become absolutely essential for his and his younger brother's survival.

When maligned, outsider detective Kev Parker finds two high-profile R/H detectives on the scene of the Lowell murder, his suspicions go sky-high. Later, when it is reported to him by a long-time friend that his name was mentioned in a conversation with an ADA prosecuting a celebrity murder case by these same detectives, Parker knows that the murder of a lawyer for low-life's is concealing something much bigger.

The story is both compelling and fast-paced as the author follows the efforts of both Jace and detective Parker on two paths trying to stay alive and unravel what is happening. It could be contended that there is just one too many bicycle chase scenes (Jace gets his bike fixed from his first encounter). Parker's dealings with supposed detective trainee Renee Ruiz are irritating to say the least As though his life was not already at a low ebb, Parker's interest in a female CSI takes an unexpected turn. Hoag writes solid mysteries and this effort is no exception.

Just read the first few paragraphs concerning a late afternoon in the life of Jace Damon, bike messenger for a courier service and I promise you that the next time one of those guys comes flying past you, you will admire him.

A harrowing car versus bike chase through downtown L.A. results in Jace barely escaping with his life - and the package. Everyone Jace cares about has become a target for the killers as they try to find Jace to recover the mysterious package.

Jace refused to prove his innocence since he is raising his younger brother alone after the death of their mother avoiding government social services. The brothers live daily under the bureaucratic radar to stay together.

Here is a story that is gripping, fast moving and enthralling. A must purchase for anyone wanting a thriller.

This is the first time I have read a book by Hoag, and it will not be the last.
Yes there are some unbelievable things that you have to go with. The detective and his "secret" job, the IA officer being so obviously out of place, Jace being so afraid of the police.
But the writer does at least make those things plausible, and the storyline fits.
There were some slow moments when the story got bogged down in details that didnt push the story forward.
Overall, its a quick enjoyable read. Hoag is really good at building character with dialogue.
I found the characters to be well rounded and likeable. you wanted them to win.
The ending is definitely a little forced, a little too much of a surprise.
